Here is the second installment in a series of posts about the new features and options in AppSense Version 8 Service Pack 2. (If you have not yet downloaded this latest release, you can read more info and download it from here )
AppSense Environment Manager 8.0 Service Pack 2 introduces a new option – Connect As.
Similar in functionality to the Run As option (see previous post), the Connect As option is only available from the Drive and Printers Actions.
This new feature can be used in conjunction with the existing AppSense Environment Manager policy actions, one example is that of mapping a shared network drive or folder, where multiple users would connect with the same user name and password. By using AppSense Environment Manager and the new Connect As command, all required users will have the drive automatically mapped with the shared user name and password.
Note: When connecting as a specified user, AppSense Environment Manager impersonates the current user. This ensures the connection is added to the correct location in the registry
