  • VMware SASE and Cloud Web Security
    by virtuallyunboxed on January 22, 2022 at 3:11 pm

    Let's start with the basics! SASE is a Gartner term and is an abreviation of Secure Access Service Edge. Still not much help right? Well lets start explaining this by looking at how people typically work, espeically remotely, and how their traffic is secured. Most of you that ever work remotely will most likely use a device level VPN. This uses software on your device to create a tunnel into your company data centre and allows you to remotely access internal resources. This is how most companies have done it for many years, and it really dates back to the days when all a companies resources were in their own data centre. Tunnelling all the traffic back into the data centre was the perfect way to reach everything a remote user would need.

  • WS1 script error
    by /u/BWMerlin on February 2, 2023 at 8:29 am

    Hi, I am trying to deploy a modified version of the WS1 re-enrollment script. I have tested the script locally and it runs so now I am trying to test pushing it out via WS1's inbuilt script function. I have uploaded the script, set the timeout to 600 seconds, set my assignment group to be just one device and set the script to run on login and every four hours. When I check the script tab for the device it shows my script is assigned to that device but the status is failed. When I view the log in the WS1 console it gives me the following error These errors occurred while executing script : Launching powershell executor failed: The filename or extension is too long I am not sure what filename or extension is too long? The script name as shown in the WS1 console is simply Re-enrol while the PS1 I uploaded was called WS1 re-enrol.ps1. In the troubleshooting logs in the WS1 console I can see that the event is Script failed to execute on device and I get the following error message under the event data The following scripts failed to execute on device : [ ScriptName : Re-enroll | ScriptUuid : 3bb1f20e-8c7d-46df-a9e2-b2ed876b9661 | LogId : 1669b678-de2b-2e9a-fd64-d7c8e02f1bb3 | VersionUuid : 5b60bf21-774e-4b20-8ef9-0b32c988c434 ] Is there something I am overlooking? Are there some log files on the local device I could look at that might shed some more light as I cannot see the script actually landing on the device itself. submitted by /u/BWMerlin [link] [comments]

  • Management tired of WS1 issues, alternatives look kinda awful
    by /u/S_SubZero on February 1, 2023 at 7:57 pm

    I've been the sole WS1 admin for my org for a few years now, primarily Mac/Win fleet with an inconsequential amount of iOS. Over the last year or so, we've had a couple of "high profile" WS1 bugs/problems that have set off management, and along with that they have the Chicken Little mindset that the Broadcom acquisition could end badly. I and another person have been tasked with testing out alternatives, I am testing multi-platform UEMs. (Note: Before you post "use [Mac-specific MDM]!!!1!" note we already have someone testing those, my specific task is the multi-platform as I'm familiar with Windows as well as Mac.) So far I've tinkered with Intune, Ivanti UEM, Hexnode, and a couple others that were so short-lived in testing I forgot the names. I knew WS1 was pretty ahead in the MDM stuff but yeesh, the others are just *so* bad, and I keep running into "WS1 has no issue with this, why can't yours do it?" situations. The closest in pure feature set is the Ivanti solution (they even have a really nice looking Freestyle equiv) but they can't enable Bitlocker without a reboot which is strange, and their configuration stuff is SOOOO granular, Macs end up with a massive number of Profiles just to do basic stuff. Their product is also such an obvious hodge-podge of their various acquisitions (it's even branded MobileIron all over the place) that I don't have 100% confidence where it's going to end up. One WS1 thing that caught me off guard is the push mindset. I've been spoiled by updating a Profile or App or whatever and within 10 minutes it's gone to hundreds of devices. These other ones are pull-centric, so the clients just poll on some schedule (and the vendors are oddly dodgy on the interval). I set up a new app in Intune for example, and well over an hour went by before it deployed to my test machine. Is WS1 really so far ahead? Did I miss something painfully obvious? submitted by /u/S_SubZero [link] [comments]

  • Fingerprint unlock suddenly disabled?
    by /u/The_Pelado on January 31, 2023 at 8:02 pm

    Hi! Has anyone seen any issues with fingerprint unlock getting all of the sudden disabled on Android 13 devices? Since late yesterday/early this morning I got a bunch of reports of being unable to unlock the phone with a configured fingerprint (it was working fine yesterday). Also, and I'm not sure if it's related or not, notifications from work profile apps no longer show the full content, just the app name that generated it. submitted by /u/The_Pelado [link] [comments]

  • "Errors Reported by remote server"- Okta Provisioning to WS1 Access
    by /u/Cryptic-Zero on January 31, 2023 at 5:17 pm

    Anyone run into this error? I have Okta configured through WS1 Access to Auto-provision users. However, I have 2 users who are currently erroring out with no way to resolve the issue. I reached out to Okta Support, and they did what they could, but obviously, the issue lies on the WS1 side. I have reached out to Support after the initial senseless banter of them trying to sell them on Pro services, I had it escalated, but it isn't really making much progress, so I figured I would pop into Reddit and see if anyone else may have run into this error and or addressed it themselves. I created the "Other" type directory group for the Okta provisioning, where users come into WS1 Access. submitted by /u/Cryptic-Zero [link] [comments]

  • mUU (macOS Updater Utility) failed to update
    by /u/UnagiR0ll on January 29, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    Hi everyone. I had been trying to implement a script via Workspace ONE to auto-update all macOS devices. I had been using this guide for the implementation with the latest script located here. I followed all the instructions but the script is failing to execute. I am attaching the hub log for the failure, a line that specifically says "2023-01-26 16:28:03+0200 Default 1874 hubd: [com.vmware.hub.workflows:Scripts] Script (macOS Updater Utility) execution result = Failure , reason = Print: Entry, ":proxy", Does Not Exist" I went through the script and added "#" before the "proxy" argument but seems that it is not bypassing that. Any suggestions? submitted by /u/UnagiR0ll [link] [comments]

  • Missing 'Task Scheduler' Tasks for MDM
    by /u/15922 on January 27, 2023 at 1:35 am

    Has anyone ever encountered issues with WS1 UEM enrollment and Scheduled Tasks like PushLaunch/PushRenewal missing from under \Microsoft\Windows\EnterpriseMgmt\{GUID}? ​ The only time I've been able to fix it is if PushUpgrade was created, but other than that, I have not found a fix. RE-enrolling does not fix it either, we typically have to reimage the device, but sometimes that takes 2-3 times before the proper tasks show up. submitted by /u/15922 [link] [comments]

  • Workspace ONE Access and Citrix Sync
    by /u/chris_115_ on January 26, 2023 at 11:36 pm

    I am curious if anyone is using WS1A with Citrix Virtual App collections. Specifically versions 21.08 and higher where there are no longer Citrix Integration Brokers but rather just extra WS1A Connectors that sync against your Citrix farm. In the year that we've stood this up we've had nothing but issues, with both of our Citrix farms that we are syncing. VMware support has not been able to assist and regularly just blows us off with "it's a Citrix issue". A few of the issues we've experienced the past year: Applications and/or application entitlements randomly disappearing after a sync. Duplicate applications being synced into WS1A. The only fix for this being that support has to run an API call against our tenant to remove the duplicate UUID. Unable to modify sync settings such as safeguard thresholds and sync frequencies. Error message appears when you click save. Excessively long sync times. When we first stood up this environment the sync took ~2 minutes to complete. Now it takes ~2 hours. The size of the farm is roughly the same as it was a year ago. At this point I'm wondering if anyone else is having the same or similar struggles. The two Citrix farms we sync are completely separate from one another. They are not even a part of the same domain. All of the issues above have happened to both of our environments at the issues start at roughly the same time. submitted by /u/chris_115_ [link] [comments]
