    NI00304:Integrating remote control tools with SDM

    Support_1 Specialist
      HOWTO: Integrate one or multiple remote control tools with SDM

      Document ID: NI00304

      Products: NetInstall 5.0 or higher

      Last Revised: 10/2/2003

      Summary:
      NetInstall’s Service Distribution Manager (SDM) allows for integration of third party remote control tools by editing a configuration file.


      Discussion:
      “RControl.cfg” is a configuration file located in the NetInstall server’s root directory. By editing this file, third party applications can be integrated in the SDM machine context menu.

      Example:
      [Remote Control Software]
      ; Under Available Options all Sections have to be listed separated
      ; by “;”

      Available Options=App1;Proxy 32

      ; The following lines work for an app that registers itself under
      ; HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Manufacturer\App1\Config Data

      ; A value for ProgramDir already has to exist on the controlling
      ; machine, or the tool will not show in the SDM, because NI assumes
      ; that the Remote control SW is not available locally.
      ; In the example the App1.exe can be called with the parameter
      ; -mWorkstationname to start the remote session on a particular
      ; machine

      [App1]
      AppRegKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Manufacturer\App1\Config Data
      ExecutableName=App1.exe
      Params=-M%s
      PathValueName=ProgramDir

      ; The next example shows how to integrate the tool “proxy32”
      ; /PIP /SWorkstationName are the command line parameters for this
      ; remote control SW

      [Proxy 32]
      AppRegKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Proxy32.exe
      ExecutableValueName=
      Params=/PIP /S%s
