Automating the installation of the Citrix ShareFile Drive Mapper requires deploying a code signing certificate to target machines before setup will complete. If you’ve installed the Drive Mapper client, you will have seen the following dialog box during setup:
Chicken Little seems to be working overtime when it comes to the Windows Store in Windows 10.

I had the pleasure recently to present a session at Citrix Synergy 2016 in Las Vegas with Helge Klein (of uberAgent and UPM fame) on enterprise desktop performance in a session titled: SYN239: UX and the enterprise desktop: like oil and water?. We’ve previously presented on performance related topics with folder redirection, and this year we wanted to take a wider look at performance on an enterprise desktop and how user experience is affected.
Citrix recently made the ShareFile Drive Mapper tool available for mapping a drive letter into your ShareFile data available on Windows clients. This is an interesting approach to providing access to ShareFile data which changes the data access approach from sync to on-demand.
Windows has supported TLS for server authentication with RDP going back to Windows Server 2003 SP1. When connecting to a Windows PC, unless certificates have been configured, the remote PC presents a self-signed certificate, which results in a warning prompt from the Remote Desktop client. An environment with an enterprise certificate authority can enable certificate autoenrollment to enable trusted certificates on the RDP listener, thus removing the prompt. To get OS X clients to accept the certificate takes a little extra configuration not required on Windows clients.
