Introducing The Learning Site @ TMurgent

Posted by Tim Mangan on Apr 25, 2017 1:22:19 PM

Introducing a new experiment in learning from TMurgent.

There really is no substitute for a full instructor led course from us to prepare yourself for successful packaging of applications using Microsoft App-V. And if you haven’t taken one of our classes I’d recommend asking any of the hundreds of people who have taken one just how valuable the class was to them. But not everything needs a full-blown instructor led course, and web pages and blogs don’t necessarily give you a comfort that you know everything that you need to know about a subject. So today we are releasing the first of our online courses to help fill in the middle gap.

1703 App-V Sequencer and Templates

Posted by Tim Mangan on Apr 25, 2017 10:43:13 AM

One of the new features of the 1703 Sequencer mentioned in TechNet “What’s New” page involves templates.

No, Microsoft didn’t do what we asked to make it easy to always load the sequencer with a Template using a registry setting like we did in 4.x. But they did solve an issue that traps everyone when updating packages. The issue is that when you open up a package for update or editing, you must use the same settings that were used when creating the original package. This includes any changes in the tools/settings (this includes changes to the exclusion list), as well as checkboxes on the advanced tab of the sequencer editor. These are all things that are captured in a template file. When I train people in App-V Sequencing, I encourage them to save off a template file of any package that they make changes to these settings. This aids in updating packages and connection groups. I find this information is rarely properly documented by the packager.

Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F) – Version 6.0.0

Posted by Matthias Schlimm on Apr 19, 2017 2:17:37 PM

the perfect way to seal your Base Image

Every time you build you’re base Image from scratch or update it, you must seal it before deploying it to your cloned devices. No matter if you are using Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop with Machine Creation Services (MCS) or Provisioning Services (PVS), VMware View or Microsoft only, BIS-F supports it all. Optimize your base Image before deployment, delete unique identifiers to prevent duplicate/ghost entries on your management server (Anti-Virus, SCCM, SCOM, etc.…), delete junk files, defrag your disk etc. All these necessary steps and much more has to be run manually, but here is a better way. Here’s the right tool for the job.

How to Roam your OneDrive data with FSLogix, based on a non-persistent Citrix XenApp desktop

Posted by Christiaan Brinkhoff on Apr 18, 2017 12:23:17 PM

I’ve written about the FSLogix Container solution in the past. About 6 months ago, I wrote an article about FSLogix named - Office365 on a non-persistent Citrix Desktop – where I describe how you can implement FSLogix on a Citrix XenApp (RDSH) non-persistent environment for making use of Office365 - Exchange Online / Cache Mode functionality. At that moment of writing, the OneDrive Container feature was still under development/investigation - but that changed last month – I’ve tested the today's latest FSLogix version 2.8 successfully, including the caching of all my OneDrive files!

The focus on IoT in the arable food chain – and the worries around its use

Posted by Clive Longbottom on Apr 4, 2017 1:10:00 PM

The arable food chain, consisting of farms, logistics/warehousing, food processing and retail, is a complex one with a major focus on food hygiene and pest management. In research carried out by Quocirca for Rentokil Initial in late 2016, the views of those responsible for managing these areas were found related to where the internet of things (IoT), cloud computing and big data could help them.
