Manage Mozilla Firefox With a Active Directory (GPO)


image

Helaas word er bij Mozilla Firefox standaard geen ADM files meegeleverd. Deze ADM file heb je nodig om via een GPO, op een centrale plek, standaard instellingen te kunnen doorgeven aan de clients op je netwerk. Gelukkig is er een team begonnen met het ontwikkelen van een Custom ADM file voor Mozilla Firefox. Deze ADM files kun je downloaden vanaf hier: Sourceforge.net. Voordat je begint met het importeren en configureren van de ADM files, raad ik je aan om de volgende pdf eerst te lezen: ADM_Deploy.pdf.

Na het lezen van de pdf weet je waarschijnlijk al hoe het deployen van de ADM files in zijn werk gaat. Ik ga het toch nog even kort beschrijven:

  1. Je pakt de zipfile uit.
  2. Je importeert de ADM files
  3. Je plaatst de login/logoff scripts (diverse *.vbs scripts) op de juiste plaats en voegt deze toe.
  4. Je maakt de instellingen, waarvan jij denkt die nodig zijn.

 

Zodra je de ADM file hebt toegevoegd, zie je de nieuwe node Mozilla Firefox Default Settings verschijnen. In deze node kun je dus bijvoorbeeld de proxyserver configureren.

Microsoft: Infrastructure Planning and Design


 

 
Overview

Infrastructure Planning and Design guides share a common structure, including:

  • Definition of the technical decision flow through the planning process.
  • Listing of decisions to be made and the commonly available options and considerations.
  • Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.
  • Framing decisions in terms of additional questions to the business to ensure a comprehensive alignment with the appropriate business landscape.

These guides complement product documentation by focusing on infrastructure design options.
Each guide leads the reader through critical infrastructure design decisions, in the appropriate order, evaluating the available options for each decision against its impact on critical characteristics of the infrastructure. The IPD Series highlights when service and infrastructure goals should be validated with the organization and provides additional questions that should be asked of service stakeholders and decision makers.
IPD consists of the following downloadable packages:

  • Infrastructure Planning and Design Series Introduction
  • Selecting the Right Virtualization Technology
  • Microsoft SoftGrid Application Virtualization
  • Windows Server Virtualization (for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1)
  • New! Windows Deployment Services
  • New! Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Domain Services

Citrix: Configure Version 10.x of the Presentation Server Client Using Group Policies


Een quote uit document CTX112957

To configure version 10.x of the Presentation Server Client for Windows using Windows Group Policies, Citrix has created a Group Policy template called icaclient.adm with 23 Citrix-specific rules used to lock down the Presentation Server Client.

These configurations are used to modify the behavior of the Program Neighborhood Agent, Program Neighborhood, and the Web client.

Use this method for client preconfiguration in lieu of modifying the .ini files on the Presentation Server Client.

Procedure

  1. The icaclient.adm template is attached to this article. To use the template, extract the .zip file and save the .adm file locally.
  2. Import the template into the Group Policy Object Editor using Active Directory Users and Computers or using the Local Group Policy snap-in.
  3. Configure the Group Policy object (GPO) rules.

Zodra je de ADM file hebt toegevoegd, kun je de verschillende zaken configureren.
