Panagenda MarvelClient allows administrators to manage HCL Nomad clients by defining their own settings. MarvelClient is provided with all installations of HCL Nomad starting with version 1.0.4.
HCL has integrated MarvelClient into Nomad, their new Notes client for mobile devices. Manage Notes clients on tablets and phones right out of the box – for free!
MarvelClient allows administrators to:
- Centrally manage every aspect of Nomad – including Recent Apps, local replicas, Location/Connection documents, and more – without end-user interaction.
- Ensure Nomad clients are properly set up following initial installation. End-users can be productive immediately without having to think about settings or how to find their Notes applications.
- Apply settings consistantly, making sure Nomad stays configured correctly – a simple restart of the app automatically fixes mis-configurations without the need for the help desk to get involved.
- Continuously collect detailed information about all aspects of deployed Nomad installations, operating systems, and hardware to further administrative analytics.
Configuring MarvelClient on Nomad clients
MarvelClient does not require any manual configuration if there is a MarvelClient Config database at one of the default Domino paths.
Each time HCL Nomad is started, MarvelClient automatically applies any new configurations after the user login process.
Disabling MarvelClient on Nomad clients
MarvelClient on HCL Nomad can be disabled. When not in use a MarvelClient on your Domino server, MarvelClient will not perform actions to configure your HCL Nomad client. There is no need to disable MarvelClient.
If you are using MarvelClient and want to disable it for HCL Nomad, use one of the options:
- If you use Desktop Policy Custom settings, set the notes.ini NOM_MC_DISABLE=1 parameter. This will disable the MarvelClient’s configurations from being applied to the Nomad client after the user enters their credentials during setup.
- If you use an MDM in your mobile environment, navigate to HCL Nomad’s AppConfig definition to set the AppConfig variable enableMarvelClient to false.
