Using RCConsole as a replacement for Wviewnt



January 27, 2006 12:00 am





ZENworks for Desktops 6.5
ConsoleOne 1.3.6

PROBLEM: Under ZENworks for Desktops 3.2 (and previous versions) we used to use Wviewnt.exe to remote control machines from the command line outside of ConsoleOne. This was very handy for remote-controlling regularly controlled machines, such as licence servers, card swipe machines etc.

However wviewnt.exe does not seem to work with ZENworks for desktops 6.5.

TID 10023508
does not include information for using this with ZENworks 6.5

SOLUTION: Use RCConsole.exe from ConsoleOne 1.3.6 (in … ConsoleOne\1.2\bin\zen\RCLaunch\ ) as a replacement for wviewnt.exe.

EXAMPLE: Use the following syntax.

-c = Remote Operation (eg Remote Control or Remote view)
-a = Ip address of target machine
-w = Fully distinguished name of ws object
-n = Tree name

For example:

RCConsole -c”Remote Control” -a”″ -t”0″ -s”2″ -w”” -n”TREE”
