Hidden Gems of ACS Deployment

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The new ACS product overcomes many of the deployment limitations of the old Client Access for Windows. ACS provides excellent deployment tools out of the box as can be seen in “The ACS deployment Guide” session immediately preceding this session. (https://sched.co/Jm24) However, there are many lesser known deployment options available.

I learned how to deploy this product when ACS was a technology preview, before IBM released the current setup tools. I learned how to deploy ACS deployment by trial and error and along the way discovered some real hidden gems. In this session I will explain the Configuration File directives and Command line options provided by ACS.  Then I will show you a real-life customer deployment that took advantage of these Configuration File directives and the Command line options to create a custom environment tailored to the specific needs of four distinct groups of end users.

Learn how manage and update end user configurations without accessing the end users PC. Learn how ACS can push out updated configurations. Learn how you can change a session profile without ever accessing their desktop. Bring your deployment questions and discover some of the hidden gems in the deployment toolbox. Learn how to make ACS work for YOU!


Learning Objectives:

  1. Review and understand the ACS Configuration directives. (Control what ACS functions start automatically.)
  2. Review and understand the ACS Command line options. (How to starting individual functions without menus.)
