NetApp VDS has functionality to run scripts in virtual desktop environments using our existing security context and to trigger those based on a variety of events. This functionality allows VDS administrators to build their best practices into automation that can be triggered as appropriate. Some examples include: Zipping up and archiving a user profile as part of the "delete user" function Automatically running session host optimization changes when a new session host VM is built Automated application install when the app is assigned to a client Until now, the script library shipped empty, requiring a VDS admin to build and test all scripts they wished to implement. With the release of Global Scripts the product now includes a handful of common scripts that can be used as-is or used as a starting point for custom automation. The first batch of scripts include install and uninstall actions for the following applications: Adobe Reader DC AMD Radeon Instinct Drivers Ezeep Print App Google Chrome Microsoft Edge Chromium Microsoft Office 365 (without One Drive and Teams, to allow for stand alone installs below) Microsoft One Drive Microsoft Teams Microsoft Teams (Optimized for WVD) Nvidia CUDA Drivers Nvidia GRID Drivers NetApp has also dedicate resources to ongoing development of additional scripts. We already have a good list of items in the queue but please don't hesitate to add a comment for ideas you'd find useful while managing your VDS environments.

Hello World! To begin our Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) forum, I figured I'd share some basic info about VDS and some links to relevant resources. VDS is a SaaS product that deploys, manages and optimizes Remote Desktop Services (RDS) and Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) environments. These environments can be managed from a single web portal while running in Azure, Google Compute Platform, AWS and/or HCI with VMware vSphere. More information on the product is found on the NetApp product page at: https://cloud.netapp.com/virtual-desktop-service We've built out product documentation for VDS which is found at: https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/virtual-desktop-service/ The product itself is accessible at: https://manage.vds.netapp.com The product team for VDS is active and wants to participate in the conversation, please don't hesitate to ping us with the @ function to get our attention. @Toby_vanRoojen , @SDingemanse , @DougPetrole Welcome!
