A VPN is an essential component of IT security, whether you’re just starting a business or are already up and running. Most business interactions and transactions happen online and VPN

RESGuru has updated the RG01F – Getting rid of the first-time login stuff technote article with the new RES PowerFuse 2010 SR2 feature; “Disable Active Setup (Skips First Time Shell Init)”. My experience with this is that it works for v2 profiles, but not v1, e.g. Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

During a RES PowerFuse 2010 SR2 PoC , we had deployed mandatory profiles for both Windows XP desktops and Windows Server 2003 with Citrix Presentation Server 4.0. Checking the aforementioned checkbox did not have the expected behaviour, i.e. we assumed that it would stop the Active Setup components from running. Needless to say – it didn’t and we were back to square one. After a call to support it appears that this only works on Windows 2008/R2 and Windows 7, i.e. v2 profiles.

Whether this is a bug or a “feature” I’m not sure.
