Do it with scripts

Ivanti DSM
optimal control

With the PSX you can drastically simplify and automate complex routine client administration tasks with Ivanti DSM. Instead of performing an action manually from the console on each computer, they create a PowerShell script that does this for you. The favourable prices for the PSX licences allow a very fast amortisation of the investment.

Examples of use:

  • Automated comparison of the DSM DSMDB with the Active Directory
  • Rollout management Support during migration to Ivanti DSM
  • Integration in 3rd party solutions
  • Creation of individual surfaces for special tasks
  • Implementation of a defined patch management strategy
  • Automation of administration tasks
  • Delegation of administrative tasks
  • and much more...

3rd-party

3rd-party Products

If you want to integrate 3rd party products (e.g. service management, hepldesk solutions, etc.) with DSM, this is very well possible with the PSX - quasi as encapsulation of the DSM SOAP interface. Changes to the interface are "intercepted" by the PSX.

Possibilities

The question about the possibilities offered by the PowerShell Extensions (or even the Administration Webservice of the SOAP interface) can be answered something like this:

However, this answer is not completely correct, because even in the views mentioned above, DSMC sometimes still performs actions directly (i.e. "past" the administration web service) and, for example, writes the distribution targets of a package directly to the file system in the file "Project.jdf". For this reason it is not possible to define the distribution targets of a new package using the PowerShell Extensions alone.

Everything that is possible in the Management Console (DSMC) in the views "Computers & Users", "Software" as well as in "Virtual Environments" can also be executed via the Administration Webservice and thus also via the PowerShell Extensions.
