What? How did you read my message? Are you some sort of l33t hacker?!?!?
TIL after much wailing and gnashing of teeth that with MDT, if you have a customsettings.ini file sitting in the root of the deployment share it will override the customsettings.ini file in the control folder (the control folder being the default location for the customsettings.ini file).
you so crazy.
Android for Work just got a whole lot easier: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016...set-up-process-now-possible-for-mere-mortals/
Sweet. Might look at actually using this soon.
you don't need EV.
You need O365.
Its been 3 years now.
except the EU is busy fighting (or was) the idea that the location doesn't matter, if MS or Veritas is based in the US - the US can get that data.
its really not that fucking hard. I've done 5 of them since Jan.
Stared playing with this last week. Good enough that we are cancelling our third party MDM plans.
Sounds like a win for me as well. Looking at rolling out a bunch of Xiaomi Redmi Note 2's running CM12.1 now.
Yep, US vendors have to comply with US government requests, so the location doesn't mean anything.
Don't want to rush these things... O365 migration is pretty bloody hard (all that point and click, luncheons, beers and stuff). It took nearly 6 hours planning to orchestrate ~250 mailboxes a few weeks back. That's nearly a whole day, plus a week of handholding during the changeover!
I don't get why cbb can't get 365 over the line, it is the easiest sell ever.
I know, all that Skykicking right? Really tires out the ole legs, still have to setup ADC like a chump.
2007 -> 365 is a bit annoying if you haven't patched your shit and want to hybridify it.
But there is infinite amounts of doco on how to do what you need to do.
If you haven't done it by now - as there was no excuse 12 months ago - its because you're incompetent.
I was being nice.
btw do you work for an MSP or something?
Are they any good? I was considering buying one a few months ago, but decided to hold my money and keep my current phone a bit longer.
For a $170 phone, they're pretty amazing. Build quality is much better than expected, dual SIM, MicroSD, removable battery, display is great, battery life is very respectable. Camera is more than serviceable for documentation and such. Stock software is pretty meh though. You need CM for it but it's dead easy to install. I've found that the latest patches are delivered reliably over OTA so can't complain, but CM has been known to push buggy builds from time to time - it's not exactly enterprise grade so I'd recommend testing before pushing updates to ensure minimal stuff-ups. Should be easy enough to mass deploy if you're into that thing as well.
I haven't tested performance with encryption but I can imagine it should be OK with the 8-core CPU it has.
That's what I'd been figuring. Expect cheap, and be surprised
While I'm here: Today I learned that Firefox will ask you if you want to overwrite a file, but then silently rename it if the file can't be written to.
When I write software and have to handle a failure I do the following in order for the ultimate user rage:
Fail silently by putting a entire main routine in a try block
Fail silently with a different action
Fail with unknown error and no stack trace
Fail with stack trace in the wrong module
Yep. You can get a "pudding TPU" and tempered glass screen protector for $3 for both. More than enough to protect the phone from being dropped.
Compared to the current business favourite, which is last year's iPhone 6, you can get 5 Xiaomi's (which are frankly better) and still have cash to spare.
No brainer IMO. Obviously some will be too invested in iPhone, but that's a different story.
ROFL, i pop in at random points, and this makes me laugh... and cry.
