[THIN] Re: O/T choice between Hybrid profiles question

CCS's solution is ok. It's a VBS solution with a custom com object.

Their web interface for modifying the XML files is clunky. I tend to
just edit the XML files directly. (Of course they might have fixed it
since I have stopped using it).=20

It has a automatic install (another VB script) that is pretty easy to
setup.

The drawback I have is their limited look at it. Last time I did it I
had to customize their script to pull some ADSI info to find the user's
home dir. The problem is they assumed that ALL users had the same server
hosting home dirs and used the same drive letter... Had to script it and
pull these into variables for the script.

The other drawback I see is that it uses an Admin account that requires
elevated privileges on the metaframe servers AND in the user's home dir,
where something like the flex kit runs as the user and does not need
that.=20

Subject: [THIN] O/T choice between Hybrid profiles question

Hello there,
I have the choice (cant believe it myself) of choosing between between
CCS Hybrid Profiles and another hybrid-type profile solution...Tricerat
Simplify Profiles.

Does anyone have any feedback about either the CCS offering or the
Tricerat offering from a functionality point of view. Any feedback would
be useful.


regards
