Automating Attachmate Terminal Emulation Client Updates with Novell ZENworks Windows-based desktop applications aren’t easy for large enterprises to centrally administer and update. Security policies require all applications that handle sensitive data be updateable in close to real-time, so there’s a real need to update these desktop applications. Attachmate and Novell are proud to announce integration between traditional Attachmate terminal emulation products and Novell ZENworks Patch Management. This session will show you how to use these enterprise technologies to keep Attachmate Extra!, Reflection and InfoConnect products healthy and secure.
Using a Modern Directory to Manage and Secure Legacy Host Access Most modern networks use LDAP groups to control access to enterprise applications, but legacy host “green screen” applications aren’t usually part of that network. This session shows you how to put a layer in front of the host so only authorized people can access the data in your legacy systems. Best of all, you don’t have to make changes to the host itself—rather, you use the existing enterprise directory to do what it’s already doing in the rest of your network.
Optimizing the User Experience when Accessing Legacy Host Applications from Any Mobile Device A number of technologies enable users to access legacy host applications from mobile devices, but the user experience is far from optimal. Entering data into host application fields is cumbersome, leading to input errors and frustrated users. This session will show you how to use Reflection 2014 TouchUx, which gives users a look and feel they’re comfortable with while they use legacy host applications. In addition, administrators can leverage Microsoft and Citrix central management features to manage Reflection from a single location.
Enabling Your Host Applications to Live in the Modern World of Security and Regulation Today’s computing environment is an alphabet soup of regulatory mandates, mostly related to security. Whether you’re talking about data at a lower layer in the stack or on a display in a host application, protecting that sensitive information from prying eyes has become a high priority. This session will cover the basics of leveraging the data protection capabilities in Reflection 2014 so you can ensure your enterprise’s mission-critical host data is not compromised.
Everything Old is New Again: X Windows and Modern Network Architectures The X Windows system may predate Free BSD and Microsoft Windows 1.0, but X Windows continues to thrive. The core X11 protocol is mature, but the methods for delivering, managing and securing X sessions have changed radically. This session explores the advantages of three-tier X Windows architectures, including collaboration and sharing of X sessions; persistence of X sessions so users can leave a running session and rejoin it from a different device; fault tolerance; high performance over high-latency networks; and centralized management and security.
Configuring and Using a Three-Tier X Windows Deployment Modern X Windows products enable administrators and users to enjoy the benefits of advanced three-tier architectures, including session persistence for disconnected users, collaboration and sharing, fault tolerance, high performance for remote users, and centralized management and security. This session will cover the basics of deploying, configuring and using a three-tier X Windows architecture. The session builds on the concepts introduced in the 100-level session, Everything Old is New Again: X Windows and Modern Network Architectures.
Pre-BrainShare Advanced Technical Training Sessions
Pre-Conference Hands-On Training
Creating a Customized USB Thumb Drive for ZCM Imaging
Instructor: Rich Hanley
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time)
Learn the techniques required to create a customized version of the Novell ZENworks Configuration Management (ZCM) imaging distribution that can be booted from a USB thumb drive. You will learn how to modify the system resource files of the bootcd_tntfs.iso file to include a custom imaging menu that launches your custom bash imaging scripts. This customized ISO file can then be used by the ZENUsbcreator utility introduced in ZENworks Configuration Management 11 SP3, to create a bootable USB thumb drive that contains your modifications to the ZCM imaging distribution.
This session focuses on the procedure required to build a customized USB thumb drive for ZCM imaging. It is not intended to teach you how to develop your own bash imaging scripts. The scripts that you will be including on your thumb drive have been developed for you. (Note: Novell Training Services offers a three day on-line course entitled “Leveraging Scripted Imaging in ZENworks Configuration Management.” This course teaches the bash scripting language and how to use it for imaging purposes.)
This session is designed for those ZCM network administrators and engineers who are responsible for deploying images to users’ desktops and laptops. This session will be especially useful for those administrators:
Who desire to use their standard corporate images for small remote or branch office locations that don’t have ZCM Imaging Satellite Servers
Or, those administrators who simply want a highly portable imaging solution to carry around in their pocket
NetIQ Identity Manager 4.02 Enhancement Pack
Instructor: Mark Forsey
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time)
NetIQ Identity Manager 4.02 is a bundle of new enhancements including:
Identity Manager Home; New UI for all permission requests and approvals
Identity Manager Catalog Administrator; New management interface for resource and Roles
Entitlement Permission Onboarding; Creates resources automatically in User Application. Resources can be assigned through the publisher channel

This one-day training session includes a lecture and a hands-on lab to prepare you for implementing these technologies in a production environment
This session is for customers and partners who currently have IDM 4.x implemented or are planning an implementation of IDM 4.02.
Those who have not seen these new enhancements will be particularly interested in the ease of implementation as well as the ease of creating and administering things like role-based entitlements.
The student should be knowledgeable about:
Administration of an IDM 4.0 implementation
The use of such tools like Designer, iManager and the User Application
The basics of IDM and the concepts of entitlements and role-based provisioning
