New to DA

Hi I've just started a new job and my first project is to get desktop authority up and running efficiently. We have a training session booked in next week but ideally id like to have my issues resolved before then.

Basically what I'm trying to do is set up USB rules for certain users, so far i've got it working in the sense that if i log on or my test user logs on we both get a different set of permissions. but if i try and add "everyone" and set their permissions as different from the other 2 it forces "everyones" permissions on myself and my test user overriding any other settings.

Also it only upgrades the agent on the PC's when I log on. Could that be due to the fact that the profile created is called "user-myloginname"? 

Thanks

  • Hey Terry, welcome to Desktop Authority. Its a great product and you can do a ton with it, especially if you have some scrpting skills. For example, we use it to push software and then check via a log file if it went ok, sending us an email if the software did not install correctly (simple rule checking for file existence)

    For this type of situation we typically set up a Active Directory group. Then the rule uses the group membership. One rule checks to see if the user is a member of the group, the other rule checks to see if the user is NOT a member of the group. That way you can easily add/remove people without having to change anything in DA itself.
