Improvements

  • Updates to reflect NetApp branding/phrasing. Note – this new branding will be applied for:

    • New VDS Client downloads

    • Existing, unedited VDS Client for Windows installs

    • Existing custom-edited/branded clients will only receive a new banner image if it was never customized. If the banner image was customized, it will remain as-is. All other colors and phrasing will remain the same.

Impact: Users will see the RDP client update the next time they launch it

Improvements

  • Graceful handling of a fringe bug with the RDP protocol where legacy credential types mixed with the most current patches on a RDS gateway results in an inability to connect to session hosts

    • If the end user’s workstation is set up (whether by an external admin, internal customer admin or via the workstation’s default settings) to use legacy credential types, there is a slim possibility this could have impacted users prior to this release

  • Point the Info button in the Cloud Workspace Client Designer to an updated documentation source

  • Improved auto-update process for the Cloud Workspace Client Designer

Impact: Users will see the RDP client update the next time they launch it

Improvements

  • Proactive enhancements to security, stability and scalability

Considerations

  • The Cloud Workspace Client for Windows will continue to auto-update as long as a user launches it prior to 4/2. If a user does not launch the Cloud Workspace Client for Windows prior to 4/2 their connection to their desktop will still function, but they will need to uninstall and reinstall the Cloud Workspace Client for Windows to resume auto-update functionality.

  • If your organization uses web filtering, please whitelist access to cwc.cloudworkspace.com and cwc-cloud.cloudworkspace.com so that auto-update functionality remains in place

Impact: Users will see the RDP client update the next time they launch it

Improvements

  • Improved clarity for the reason a user would see a ‘your services are currently offline’ message. The potential causes for a message appearing are:

    • Session host server is scheduled to be offline and user does not have Wake on Demand permissions.

      • If the user was using the Cloud Workspace Client, they would see: “Your services are currently scheduled to be offline, please contact your administrator if you need access.”

      • If the user was using the HTML5 login portal, they would see: “Your services are currently scheduled to be offline. Please contact your administrator if you need access.”

    • Session host server is scheduled to be online and user does not have Wake on Demand permissions.

      • If the user was using the Cloud Workspace Client, they would see: “Your services are currently offline, please contact your administrator if you need access.”

      • If the user was using the HTML5 login portal, they would see: “Your services are currently offline. Please contact your administrator if you need access.”

    • Session host server is scheduled to be offline and user has Wake on Demand permissions.

      • If the user was using the Cloud Workspace Client, they would see: “Your services are currently offline, please contact your administrator if you need access.”

      • If the user was using the HTML5 login portal, they would see: “Your services are currently scheduled to be offline. Click START to bring them online and connect.”

    • Session host server is scheduled to be online and user has Wake on Demand permissions.

      • If the user was using the Cloud Workspace Client, they would see: “Please allow 2-5 minutes for your Workspace to start.”

      • If the user was using the HTML5 login portal, they would see: “Your services are currently offline. Click START to bring them online and connect.”

      • /nothinprint

        • Excludes ThinPrint from the installation process

    • ShowCompanyNameInTitle: True/False – indicates whether or not the company name is displayed

  • The following can be added to c:\Program Files (x86)\Cloud Workspace:

    • banner.jpg, banner.png, banner.gif or banner.bmp and this will be displayed in the client window.

Bug Fixes

  • The Registered symbol has been adjusted

  • Empty phone and email entries on the Help page have been fixed
