How to configure different icons on the desktop depending on who logs into the device?

I’m pretty sure the answer to this is no but I thought I’d see if anyone has a possible workaround, is there a way to have different icons on the desktop depending on who logs into the device? for example based on membership of an AD group

Hi Simon, yes, it‘s called Shared Workplace and it‘s part of the EMP (Enterprise Management Pack) subscription:

Excellent I wasn’t aware of this. I have enabled it on a profile, applied the appropriate license and assigned profiles to user groups on AD but when I try to log on I get the message Error in UMS user authentication then it changes to Invalid Login. The login works without using Shared Workplace. What have I missed?

Did you setup a AD Login in UMS?

Yes thats all set up. The profile allowed the user to log in with their AD credentials, it only doesn’t work if I tick the Activate IGERL shared workplace box. There must be something else I need to set.

Can you remove the AD Login Profile and just let the SWP Profile assigned?

I have done, I get the same result.

Which UMS / Igel OS Version are you using?

UMS – 6.04.100 OS – 11.02.150

Thanks! Did you assigned a profile to the user you are trying to login? Like a Session?

I assigned a profile to a group that the user is a member of

Can it only be done at a use level?


Can you try to assign directly? I just tested in my lab and I got the same behavior like you when assigning on group or no profile assigned:

I have tried assigning directly to users, these dont appear in the Assignments window and I am still getting the same result.

Can‘t test with 11.02 atm. Can you try it maybe with 11.03?

I was unable to use 11.3 as it had an issue with Firefox which I need for one of the profiles. Dont know if that has been resolved in 11.03.110

Just to be sure: the device you are testing on has a valid Enterprise Management Pack subscription?

Resolved this issue, the 1st DC in the list of DCs on the UMS server had been decommissioned since the UMS server had been setup. I removed all the DCs in the list and manually re-added the current ones and Shared Workplace now works.


Simon where in the UMS did you have DC’s that were retired.

I guess Simon meant UMS Administration, Active Directory / Ldap section.
