Morning Guys and Gals,
Anybody know of a way to modify Remote Access Policy so that you can restrict the ability to to silently control a users machine?
Hi TCG4U ,
You can do it with 2 ways: go to remote control -> notification policy -> machine policy and apply silenty take control.
Create a policy: and check the box remote control -> select user notification type: silenty take control.
Youri is correct... notification policy is what you need.
Some additional detail,
You will notice there are two types of policies;
User Role restrists all Administrators of a certain Role type, Machine affects ALL Administrators and Roles of a specific machine... Machine Role takes precedence. You have the following options;
If you restricted a Role to "Require permission, deny if noone is logged in" you would probably want to set a Machine Policy for all Servers to "Allow silent remote control" since it is likely there would NOT be anyone logged into a server or sitting at a server console waiting to provide access permission.
Also, if your using this to restrict your VSA Admin's authority, its important to provide those admins a Role less then Master and remove functional access to the "Remote Control/ Policy Settings" from their role so they cant simply switch the setting back to Silent.
Hope this helps;
