Dameware Centralized Server - Useless?

Hi all,

i am sorry but i have to say i really expected more from Dameware Centralized Server. I installed the Centralized Server today (no proxy, no gateway), but this tool is just useless in my opinion.

Installation was easy yes, but after an hour i have to say: It is only usefull for centralized license management, thats all! If you have just a few licenses, dont waste your time and manage them manually.

Things i am really missing (and i think i am not alone requesting such features)

- only AD User Import, no real AD integration. Hence you have to manage your users manually.

- no Rights Managment - only admin or no admin

- no centralized config management

- no autologin with DRMC or DRMS

Global host list:

- No rights management (user only should have access to a few hosts / folders)

- no centralized and advanced settings for hosts entries (only connect with RDP to a specific host) settings will be ignored if you connect via DRMC

- its just a list of your favourites, not more not less.

Is there a wishlist for product improvement? When is the next update planned?

Thanks

Peter

  • Is there a roadmap for this feature? We, too, find the centralized server to be pretty much useless. We were excited about this feature because we wanted an easy way to manage hosts. But, when adding a host, the only field is a host name/IP address--no other identifying information like comments, descriptions, etc. All of our machines are named via asset number (agx-036321) so we need something more to see than just a host name. We need a way to link users to to machines. We have done that in AD where we've entered the user's name/location/etc. into the computer description field in AD. We were hoping to take advantage of this, but it doesn't seem to be the case. For now, centralized server is useless to use and will not be using it again until some significant improvements are made.
