Create and Deploy Sessions and Settings with the MSS Administrative Console
Using the MSS Administrative Console, you can define terminal emulation sessions, configure and save session settings, and then manage and configure secure settings for those sessions.
Create or Modify a Centrally Managed Session
You can create and manage Reflection sessions from the MSS Administrative Console. Sessions that you create in this way are saved to the server and can be made available to users from the server and modified at any time.
For instructions that show how to add or modify sessions, see the Management and Security Server Administrator Guide, in the Host Access Management and Security Server Documentation.
Make Centrally Managed Sessions Available to Users
After you have saved sessions to the centralized management server, you can make these sessions available to users who have Reflection installed on their workstation. Users can launch these sessions in the same way they launch locally created sessions. When Centralized Management is configured, each time a user opens the workspace:
Reflection contacts the server and prompts for user credentials (if required by the server).
Sessions that are available to the user are downloaded to the user data directory.
For instructions that show how to make sessions available to users, see the Management and Security Server Administrator Guide, in the Host Access Management and Security Server Documentation.
Use Central Management to Deploy MSI Packages
Use the Administrative Console to upload companion install packages (.msi) to the Administrative Server for deployment to specified users. Companion install packages can be created in the Installation Customization Tool or other MSI creation tools, and may include toolbars, macros, keyboard maps, and settings files.
You can simplify deployment of MSI packages by saving your customized sessions as compound session document files.
These packages are automatically deployed to a user's desktop when the user logs on to the Management and Security Server or starts a Reflection Workspace session with Centralized Management enabled.
For instructions that show how to configure, upload, or update a package, see the Management and Security Server Administrator Guide, in the Host Access Management and Security Server Documentation.
Enable Certificate Management for IBM Terminals
You can import certificates to the centralized management server and then make them available to Reflection users on their workstations. When configured to use certificate management, Reflection uses these managed certificates instead of the Reflection or Windows Certificate store.
To Upload a Certificate
Log on to the Management and Security Server Administrative Console as an administrator.
From the Configure Settings sidebar menu, select Trusted Certificates.
Select Import and upload your certificate to the Management and Security Server.
To configure Reflection Desktop to use certificate management, select the Enable Certificate Management setting on the Configure Centralized Management dialog box and then deploy this setting to users.
When launching the workspace with this setting enabled, Reflection uses the managed certificates instead of the Reflection or Windows Certificate store.
