I needed to find a way to set the default printer via a Deployment Console job. I have found a few different ways of doing it.

The first is a vbs script:

Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WSHNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "[PRINTER_NAME]"

For more info check out this web site: http://www.intelliadmin.com/blog/2007/08/set-defau...

The second can be used in the command prompt:

start /W RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /y /n "[Printer_Name]"

This link should be in everybody's toolbox if you work with VMware ESX.

We recently had a request that seemed to make way too much sense for us to have not done it already. 
A helpdesk worker wanted to be able to view everything associated to an asset (monitors, incidents, people, software licenses) quickly and easily. 

By creating a task we were able to make that happen right away. 

Once you've set whatever parameters you want to make it viewable just drop this line into the "Base URL" section.

Quick and easy. 

Hope it helps.

Apart from Symantec products and processes, why can not we have ideas that can change the way we do things.

I have got an idea here that is going to save lot of time and money for our organization.

According to Microsoft the design goals for Windows XP on a typical consumer PC are:

  • Boot to a useable state in a total of 30 seconds
  • Resume from Hibernate (S4) in a total of 20 seconds
  • Resume from Standby (S3) in a total of 5 seconds

I work for an organization which has over 1000 employees. Most of the employees are complaining about the time that a laptop/desktop is taking to boot to Windows. We are also concerned on the same. We had a meeting today and discussed about the new and ongoing issues in our company that are affecting the business. One of our discussion topics is, how to bring down the bootime and how to increase the performance?

We have a standard Environment:

  • Laptop/Desktop [Dell/HP]:

The beta for Data Connector 7.0 is now available for download. As part of the 7.0 release, we have moved the Connector functionality into the Symantec Management Platform and it is no longer a standalone solution. The functionality will now be available to all solutions and customers.

Highlights of this release include:

  • Import Organizational Views and Groups - This allows you to create and populate new Organizational View and Groups structures from any of the data sources that Connector supports.
  • User Interface/Usability updates - The User Interface has been re-factored to help with usability and make connector integrations even easier.
  • Virtual Data Classes - A Virtual Data Class allows you to federate data into the Notification Server CMDB. This is done by creating a key from a resource type in the CMDB to an external source. You can then reference data from the other data source without importing the data. This data can then be used in...

You set up a host to disconnect the session if inactive after XX minutes, the remote connected to the host, and stay inactive for the XX minutes, but it's not getting disconnected as configured.

There is 2 main reasons behind that:

  1. The caller is a Superuser, and that's working by design. The Superuser will have a full permission.
  2. The mouse pointer is not stable.



Solution:

  • Change to a normal user
  • replace the mouse
