I did become a CTA – How did that happen?

tl;dr: Create a blog, check out Twitter and follow the community.
Share content, even if you’re no Pro, everybody needs to start somewhere.

A few years ago I was thinking about which path I should take in my IT career. My key competences were clear for some time. During and after my apprenticeship at my employer ANAXCO GmbH, I was on several instructor-led Citrix classroom courses. One of my main tasks in our company is the design and configuration of Citrix virtual apps and Desktops Sites (formerly XenApp & XenDesktop Farms) for the provisioning of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 / 2012 / 365. There is a reason our company’s name is “AN AX COmpany”. So my work with CVAD and Citrix Gateway¬† (formerly NetScaler Gateway) was already settled. Besides that I had the opportunity to go to a brilliant deep dive classroom course for Microsoft Group Policy at NT-Systems in Germany. Continue reading “I did become a CTA – How did that happen?”

Download and install latest Release of PowerShell

I created a PowerShell script to include the latest Version of PowerShell into your MDT Reference Image.

With the General Availability (GA) of PowerShell 7, it is time to think about updating our MDT Reference Images. Furthermore the increasing number of remote backends that require a minimum TLS 1.2 for remote connections with for example Invoke-WebRequest like PowerShell Gallery and several other JSON APIs.

Dell Wyse ThinOS 9.0 & Wyse Management Suite 2.0

Dell has released a new major version of their ThinClient OS ThinOS, which focuses only on Citrix Workspace app enhancements.

A few days ago, Dell released ThinOS Version 9.0. To quote the release notes:

ThinOS 9.0 is a Citrix-specific release, which integrates Citrix Workspace app. Other Broker agent connections such as VMware, RDP, and Amazon WorkSpaces are not supported in this release. ThinOS 9.0 does not support the usage of INI parameters. You must use either Wyse Management Suite or the local Admin Policy Tool to manage your systems.

The important part is, that you can no longer rely on your good old FTP server and the wnos.ini. You have to implement Wyse Management Suite Version 2.0, which is currently the only way to manage ThinOS 9.0. Wyse Management Suite Version 2.0 is free up to 10.000 devices with a slightly limited feature set. You can find all details in the Wyse Management Suite feature matrix.
