Configuration via policy or script?

Post by JohnKFisher on Fri May 31, 2013 6:33 pm

Very nice program - we use it at the nonprofit I work at and it's really helpful. We're about to replace a bunch of laptops, and I was wondering if there was a way to automate the configuration? Be it by policy, script, copying certain files and putting them in certain places, etc?

The only difference between the settings is the email address itself, as every other option (use of domain login for user/pass, growl, auto login, etc) shouldn't change between them.

Either way, thanks in advance :-)

Just bumping this as I believe the forums were acting up the last few days :-)

Hi John, sorry for the tardy response.

My advice would be to create each of your config files in advance. You can find the file that stores these settings here,

Code:
%localappdata%\OWAtray\scenario.
xml
Copy this, one for each of your users. Then through whichever mechanism suits you best, deploy the correct file to each machine. Either to the folder as located above, or, to an arbitrary local or network location and create a shortcut with a parameter indicating the location of the desired file, as follows,

Code:
C:
\<
path>
\DrunkenBakery.
OWAtray.
GUI.
exe "
C:
\Users\<
user>
\scenario.
xml"
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
