PROBLEM: ZENworks 6.5 does not allow you to autocreate printer and drive mappings with the RDP Protocol, when I try to open a terminal server application through a portal such as myapps.html.

Solution

  1. Start ConsoleOne without snapins.
  2. Select the terminal server application object, choose properties and go the section "others."
  3. Add the attribute "zenappThinClientSettings" and define the properties for this attribute.
  4. Change PrinterRedirection value to "true" and change DriveRedirection value to "true."

Example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ThinClientSettings version="5.1" type="rdp"><General><Server sequence="0" name="terminal.yourdomain.ch" port="3389" domain="" /><UserName value="%USERHERE%" /><Password value="%PSWDHERE%" /><UserDN value="%userdnhere%" /><PluginDLLs value="" /><Tree value="%NDSTREEHERE%" /></General><Display><ColorDepth value="16" /><Scaling value="false" /><MaintainAspectRatio value="false" /><FullScreen value="false" /><FullDesktop value="true" /><DesktopWidth value="0" /><DesktopHeight value="0" /></Display><LocalResources><SoundMode value="0" /><KeyboardComboMode value="3" /><DriveRedirection value="true" /><PrinterRedirection value="true" /><SerialPortRedirection value="false" /><SmartCardRedirection value="false" /></LocalResources><Programs><MaximizeStartProgram value="false" /><ConnectToConsole value="false" /><StartProgram value="C:\Novell\GroupWise\GrpWise.exe" /><StartProgramFolder value="C:\Novell\GroupWise" /></Programs><Experience><DisableWallpaper value="false" /><DisableFullWindowDrag value="false" /><DisableAnimations value="false" /><DisableTheming value="false" /><DisableCursorShadow value="true" /><DisableCursorSettings value="true" /><HideConnectionBar value="false" /><HideConnectionBarPin value="false" /><HideConnectionBarMin value="false" /><HideConnectionBarRestore value="false" /><NoBitmapPersistance value="true" /></Experience></ThinClientSettings>
