My Top 3 Favorite/Informative UEM Community Forum Discussions – October/November 2017

 

Yet another two months have passed, therefore I want to share my top 3 favorite/informative UEM Community Forum discussions of October/November 2017 in this blog post.

#3 – Windows 10 Mandatory Profiles and Skype for Business – How to make Skype for Business work with mandatory profiles and UEM.

#2 – Profile cleanup: unable to delete desktop – How to force delete certain items in the profile using UEM.

#1 – Windows 10 Edge Enterprise Mode Site List – How to persist Enterprise Mode Site List with UEM.

Key takeaway: How to make Skype for Business work with mandatory profiles and UEM.

Forum user QCBenPetersen asked:

So I was wondering if any of you have been able to get this to work. James Rankin made a recent video on how to make this work, which looks promising.

However how would I make this change to the profile reg entry at logon and logoff on UEM?

Still relatively new to UEM so hopefully answer will help my knowledge on the next level.

Thanks in advance.

Hi QCBenPetersen,

Instead of using James Rankin’s approach, might I suggest testing with UEM’s certificate support for mandatory profiles setting (Configure Certificate Support for Mandatory Profiles Setting)? That should pretty much achieve the same thing, and has the advantage that it’s built in to the product.

#2 – Profile cleanup: unable to delete desktop

Linkhttps://communities.vmware.com/thread/573994

Key takeaway: How to force delete certain items in the profile using UEM.

Forum user SanderK0 reported:

Hi all,

I am trying to use profile cleanup to delete the contents of the local desktop at logoff, however the flexengine log says: [ERROR] Profile cleanup: Skipping blacklisted folder ‘<Desktop>’
Is there a way around this blacklist?

UEMdev his answer:

Hi SanderK0,

That blacklist is in place to prevent UEM admins from removing too much by mistake, but it can indeed be overridden: just append \[FORCE DELETE], so in your case: <Desktop>\[FORCE DELETE]

#1 – Windows 10 Edge Enterprise Mode Site List

Linkhttps://communities.vmware.com/thread/575436

Key takeaway: How to persist Enterprise Mode Site List with UEM.

Forum user larsonm asked:

I am looking to use Enterprise Mode Site List via AD GPO in a linked clone environment running Windows 10.  The goal:  when a user opens Edge and attempts to navigate to a site, Windows automatically opens that site in IE 11 and close Edge.

When the user logs in, they are required to open Edge once to get the policy downloaded.  Once downloaded, the next time a user opens Edge with the URL in question, IE 11 opens the URL and closes Edge as expected, but this is required to occur once during every time the user logs into a new desktop, they must repeat these steps.  What they’d like to is have UEM persist the fact that Edge has received the policy and simply open the link in IE 11.  We are using UEM 9.2.1, with the Edge.ini file provided on the VMTN site. We are looking for assistance on how to persist the site list downloaded by the policy.  Any insights?

larsonm his own answer ;-):

Through testing a research, we were able to find a solution. The full resolution is published here:
