NetBIOS Name Template

This template creates a configuration that maps network printers and defines a default printer based on the location of the remote device using its NetBIOS name. It can be found in the LOCATION AWARE PRINTING category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
Device Location
 
 
 
 
Defines the location of a remote device based on its NetBIOS name.
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

REMOTE - NAME NAME Any Of 3 ITEMS,…
Replace DEVICE_NAME_X for Floor 1, Floor 2, Floor 3,… with the device names representing the target location.
Example: DE-SG01
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes an enforcement action that actively configures the session. By default, the enforcement action is enabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
Conditional Configuration - Printer Management - NetBIOS name
 
 
 
 
Maps network printers and defines a default printer based on the location of the remote device using its NetBIOS name.
 
 
 
 
Activated
 
 
 
 
You must update the following context condition with data suitable for your environment:

MAP PRINTER Unknown, MAP PRINTER Floor 1, MAP PRINTER Floor 2,…
Configure printers for each location within the target map printer task.
Example: \\DTLDPS01\Corporate Printer
Note:
  • If the action has been disabled, the context will still be created.
