Quick Start Remote Control Without using ConsoleOne


March 22, 2007 12:07 pm





Windows workstation, ZENworks Desktop management. You’ll also need a flat OU with all the workstations in your organisation.

If you love using Windows “START,RUN…” or if you want to make starting a remote control or view session easy for your support guys this might be something for you. It’s not rocket sience but it made remote workstation management a lot easier and fun. Just put two batch files in your path (copy them over with ZENworks of course…). I’ve included two batch files rc.bat and rv.bat. Put these on your workstations and you’ll be able to type “RC workstationname” or “RV workstationname” in the START, RUN… dialogue.


Put this in rc.bat:

@echo off
start c:\novell\ConsoleOne\1.2\bin\zen\RcLaunch\RCConsole.exe -c"Remote Control" -a"%1" -t"0" -s"2" -w"%1.WORKSTATIONS.YOURORG" -n"YOURTREE"

Put this in rv.bat:

@echo off
start c:\novell\ConsoleOne\1.2\bin\zen\RcLaunch\RCConsole.exe  -c"Remote View" -a"%1" -t"0" -s"2" -w"%1.WORKSTATIONS.YOURORG" -n"YOURTREE"

You could also start RCConsole directly from the server so you don’t need a ConsoleOne installation on the workstation you want to RC/RV from.
