Configure Agents for Server OS

If you use server-based computing and you want all users to log on to a session with the Ivanti Workspace Composer, you can configure this in the Microsoft Group Policy Object Custom User Interface. This will start Workspace Control as the Shell in a user session instead of the Windows Desktop.

To configure this, execute the following steps:

Step 1: Create a new Group Policy Object.

In the Microsoft Windows Group Policy Management Console, create a new Group Policy Object.

Step 2: Configure the relevant policies for the Group Policy Object

Step 3: Configure security for the Group Policy Object

On the Security tab of the GPO Properties window, add the group holding all users you want a Managed Desktop for.

You can remove (or deny) the "apply-rights" for your administrator accounts. Alternatively, use the Workspace Control feature Bypass composer for accounts and groups.

If you configured the Authenticated Users group, you must also give this group Read permissions on the Group Policy Object (GPO), if KB3159398 in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS16-072 has been applied.

Step 4: Link the Group Policy Object to an OU

Select the Active Directory OU that contains your RDS Servers/Citrix Servers and link the new Group Policy Object to that OU.
