Step 1 – Network Share
Create a network share on you network. Domain Users must have read\write access to the share. Technicians using Goverlan only need read access.
Step 2 – Distribution
Configure your Goverlan agents and Goverlan operators to use the GCDR share you created in Step 1.
To do this you have three options:
- The Goverlan administrative GPO
- The Goverlan Central Server
- Direct registry modification of Goverlan Agent Machines and Console users.
You can find the Goverlan administrative GPO template in C:\Program Files (x86)\GoverLAN v7\GPO Templates.
You can import the ADMX files for domain controllers that are Server 2008 and above.
The GPO that you create must be linked to the OU that your user workstations and tech workstations are a member of.
Once you have the administrative template installed, create a GPO and configure the following setting.
Once this GPO has been created and linked to the proper OUs, the Goverlan agents will begin to store the login information on the \\Server\Share that you configured.
The Goverlan management console will then be able to detect workstations where users are logged in to.
Goverlan Central Server Option
You can Install the Central Server on any Windows based server on you network.
After you install the GCS, you will need to configure the following DNS entry on your DNS Server.
Download and install the Goverlan Central Server on any server you wish on you network.
After it is installed create a DNS SRV record on you DNS Server.
- In DNS go to Forward Lookup Zones
- Locate your domain zone
- Go to the _tcp folder
- Right click and select “Other New Records”
- Go to Service Locator (SRV)
- Create a record that looks like the following. NOTE: there is a “.” At the end of the FQDN in the host field.
After this record is created and DNS gets a chance to populate, the agents will begin reporting in to this server for settings.
Be sure the Windows Firewall is not blocking port 21160.
You can then enable the setting for the GCDR location with these steps.
1. Go to the Universal Settings Distribution tab
2. Enable Universal Settings Distribution
Direct Registry Modification Method
You can use a Goverlan Scope Action to push the necessary registry change to your workstations for the GCDR location setting.
