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

  • just as an FYI - you are correct, only 1 can be active at a time so you need to design the rule logic so the only the one profile gets to the right set of users and computers.

    A good example is extra software used by our Office staff. The rule creates a desktop icon when they log in, but I don't want the icon to be created if the software isn't actually on the computer (i.e. if they log in on someone elses computer) so they have a AND rule that checks if the file exists AND if the user is a member of the Office Staff group.
