  • Custom Branding

    If you have a custom branding scheme for the Desktop Portal, you will need to check whether everything appears as expected after upgrading a tenant. There are a few areas to which you should pay particular attention due to VMware branding changes.

    • Login page:

      CSS selector: #productNameInner

      You may need to adjust the margin-left property and/or decrease the font-size, for example :

      font-size: 14px;

    • Other pages:

      You will likely need to make the same changes as for the login page. Additionally, you may need to adjust the background-position of the #banner selector:

      background-position: 0px 0px;

  • Enabling Post-Sysprep Commands

    • To enable post-sysprep commands, perform these steps on a desktop before converting it to an image.

      1. Create a folder named sysprep under C:\ driver.

      2. Create a batch file named postprep-extra.bat in the sysprep folder.

      3. Add required commands in batch file and save it.

      4. Convert the desktop to an image. File path: c:\sysprep\postprep-extra.bat . Sysprep launches this batch file during specialize pass execution (before agent comes and joins the domain).

    • To set the post sysprep batch file in the template before converting to a gold pattern (executed before domain join), perform the following steps.

      1. Create a batch: c:\sysprep\postprep-extra.bat

      2. Create the C:\Sysprep\.... folder structure (for Windows 7): C:\Sysprep\ postprep-extra.bat

      3. Save it with your commands. Sysprep executes this batch file in post execution.
