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 provide an example of a real-life customer deployment that was custom tailored to the specific needs of four distinct groups of end users.

Come to this session and learn how I used some of the lesser known deployment options of ACS. In ths session I will describe how I created a customized a network deployment for (4) four unique functional groups of users.

  1. Basic 5250 end user - One 5250 emulation session and printer output only. Two desktop icons.
  2. Business office users - One 5250 emulation session with upload and download capability. Above two icons plus optional abbreviated menu.
  3. Super users - Above Business Office users plus SQL access.  Menu with only required functions.
  4. Admin users - Super users plus HMC and Console functions. – Full menu.

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.  See examples of a network deployment of ACS for multiple users from a single network location.
  2. See how an administrator can test and change an end user’s configuration without desktop access.
  3. See examples of deploying any single function without requiring a menu.  A direct shortcut to precisely the function you need, i.e., Printer Output, SQL, System Console, HMC, IFS access etc. 
  4. Bring your own deployment questions and discover some of the hidden gems in the deployment toolbox.
