To use Ivanti Endpoint Manager, you must first install the Ivanti Endpoint Manager console. You need irccntr.exe and isscntr.exe to launch the Endpoint Manager component. Your analysts must have permission to use Ivanti remote control functions.
You first need to create an LDMS connection.
This is different from creating a connection using Data Connections, which you may have created to import information from an external data source.
Provider – The provider that enables access to the information in your desktop management system. For example, SQLOLEDB.
Server (Data Source) – The name of the server on which Ivanti Endpoint Manager (LDMS) is set up and configured. Typically, Endpoint Manager installs to a database instance called ldmsdata; if Endpoint Manager is installed on a specific database instance, you need to include this in the form server\dbinstance. For example, LDServer\ldmsdata.
Database – The name of the database that is used by Endpoint Manager.
User ID – The User ID for the database that is used by Endpoint Manager.
Password – The Password for the database that is used by Endpoint Manager. Click , then enter and confirm the password. Click OK.
Is Ivanti on an Oracle Database? – Select False.
You don’t usually need to include a value for the Core Server Name property.
Ivanti MBSDK Service URL – The URL for the Ivanti MBSDK service. For example, http://servername/MBSDKService/MsgSDK.asmx.
User Name – The user name used to access the MBSDK web service.
Domain – The domain name of the web service user.
Password – The password used to access the MBSDK web service.
Server Date/Time Format – the date/time format on the Endpoint Manager server.
Before you can use your desktop management functions, you must first set up how Desktop Manager identifies the specific remote object that you want to manage on the connection that you have set up. You do this by selecting the business object from which you will use Desktop Integration, then specifying the attribute that contains the unique identifier for the remote objects that you want to manage. This unique identifier is used to search for a match on your Endpoint Manager system. If a match is made, you can then connect to that remote object.
For example, you can specify that a Desktop Integration connection can occur on your Configuration Management | Configuration Item | PC object. When you use the Desktop Integration menu on the PC window, Desktop Manager searches your Endpoint Manager system according to the attribute that you specified on the PC business object. For example, in the case of Endpoint Manager, this is the attribute that contains the Computer ID. When the corresponding Computer ID is found on your Endpoint Manager system, then Desktop Manager enables you to use Endpoint Manager functions (such as remote control) on that specific PC instance.
You will use the desktop management shortcut menu from the window that you have created for this business object.
