How do you set preferences for Sametime Connect 7.5.1 and 220.127.116.11 clients?
There are several ways to set preferences within the Sametime® Connect clients. Which method(s) you choose to implement will depend on your business needs and requirements. The following are listed in the order in which they take precedence.
|Method 1: Set preferences using Sametime Policies|
1. Forced upon the end-users such that they cannot modify the setting, AND
2. Take highest precedence over any other method used to set client-side preferences.
For more information on Sametime Policies, see the following document in the Sametime Information Center: Policy Settings Table
|Method 2: Set preferences manually using Sametime Connect client|
Preferences set manually by an end-user from within the client's Preferences panel are stored in the end-user's profile directory (either within an XML document or a *.pref file).
|Method 3: Set preferences using plugin_customization.ini|
Administrators can use this to deploy clients to have consistent behavior such that all end-users have a similar experience with the product. The preferences set using this method will be overwritten by Methods 1 and 2.
Note: Preferences set using this method cannot be locked down.
The remainder of this document describes how to utilize Method 3 to set default values for the majority of the available client-side preferences.
1. Backup the [Sametime Client Program Directory]\plugin_customization.ini.
2. Modify the plugin_customization.ini by appending the appropriate flag.
(See below table for examples)
3. Save and close the configuration file.
4. Restart the client.
To utilize plugin_customization.ini for all users, reference technote #1261055 . This technote provides a sample plug-in that demonstrates how an administrator can provision all clients automatically.
