How I started managing HCL Nomad via Panagenda MarvelClient

What are my first impressions with HCL Nomad and Panagenda MarvelClient? Yeah, it works! And on the first attempt without a manual.

In preparation for the SUTOL conference, where I will have a presentation on managing HCL Nomad using MarvelClient, I attended the webinar “MarvelClient and HCL Nomad – A match made in heaven”.

Immediately after watching, I updated MarvelClient and decided to try the following steps without preparation:

  • Adding MarvelClient analyze to “Recent applications”
  • Create a replica of this application and add it to the Replicattion
  • Adding mailDB to “Recent applications” at the first position
  • Create a replica mailDB and add it to the Replication

I have beta HCL Nomad 1.0.5 on both iPad and iPhone. So I tried a tablet first. I still need a phone and what if …

Step 1: Adding MarvelClient analyze to “Recent applications”

In MarvelClient configuration application I created new object of application / mailfile action type and named it “Nomad – add app”

“General” tab. I used the button “Paste Database data from Link in Clipboard” to avoid having to search the application in the catalog. The data was loaded into the fields: Title, Server, Filename and Replica ID.

“Recent apps” tab. In the “Action” field, I chose the “Create / Update” option and left “Add a recent apps icon one does not exist”. This is how I added the app to the “Recent” on the iPad.

In the “When” and “Who” conditions, I made sure that this setting was implemented only for the selected user.

Finally, I chose that this setting is only for iOS and Tablet.

Then I logged in on the iPad.

And I immediately appeared MarvelClient analyze application icons in “Recent” …

Step 2: Adding MarvelClient analyze to “Recent applications”

I opened already created document “Nomad – add app” and on the tab “Local replica” I marked “manage local replica on Nomad too”

Chose the options: Create replica, Always replicate and others as needed and saved.

Then I signed up on the iPad and I immediately saw the MarvelClient analyze application in the “replicator”

Step 3: Adding mailDB to “Recent applications” at the first position

In MarvelClient configuration application I created new object of application / mailfile action type and named it “Nomad – mailfile”.
“General” tab. I chose “Server and / or local replica” icon and mainly Database: Usermailfile

“Recent apps” tab. In the “Action” field, I chose the “Create / Update” option and left “Add a recent apps icon one does not exist”. This is how I added the app to the “Recent apps” on the iPad. I also wanted the icon to be placed in the first position.

In the “When” and “Who” conditions, I made sure that only the selected user was implemented again. Finally, I chose that this setting is only for iOS and Tablet.

Then I signed up on the iPad and I immediately got an icon of my mail in “Recent apps”

Step 4: Create a replica mailDB and add it to the Replicator

I opened already created document “Nomad – mailfile”. On the tab “Local replica” I marked “manage local replica on Nomad too”. I chosed options: Standard replica and because I didn’t want to create a full replica, I just chose “Stub only” and saved.

Then I signed up on the iPad and I immediately got my mail DB in the “replicator”

What to write at the end?

Yes, it was a simple test, but I think that’s exactly what you want to set up for your users at the beginning. You do the same on Notes clients.
