by Matthias Schlimm

The Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F) is fully developed in Powershell and helps you to seal your Base Image for Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, VMware Horizon View, Microsoft RDS / VDI environments with complete automated steps from vendor best practices guides. BIS-F detect the installation of your AntiVirus, System Management Software and some others (see the list below), optimize and prepare/seal the Base Image and delete the unique Identifier of the listed Applications to prevent duplicate/ghost entries in the management servers.

Most business environment have a (somewhat) restricted workspace. The IT department is always discussing the need of the Windows Task manager for end-users. This is because the Windows Task Manager is unmanageable and gives away a whole lot of information about performance, services, processes and possibly the name of other logged on users on that machine.

During my work life of the last decade I have come across many large-scale RDSH and VDI environments. From my point of view, a lot of these environments suffer from similar structural issues.
