Sun Ray Remote Control Demo

UPDATE:  Version .03 and documentation is now available on the Sun Ray Wiki

Here's a demo of what you can do with the Sun Ray Remote Control toolkit I've been working on.  This is version .02 (I've added a few things from version .01, like the ability to record a users session and random session passwords) and I will publish it this week-end.  From now on I'll just put pointers here, but the bits and cookbooks will be found on the Sun Ray Wiki under Remote Toolkit.  Until then enjoy this little movie (which just happened to be made from the toolkit)

Movie Background: Your co-workers have been complaining about a user named Bubba.  Seems he likes to play games and visit websites that are NSFW.  You, Mr. SysAdmin (aka Da man) have just returned from lunch (a little groggy from the carbs so you type a command or two wrong).  You notice that one of your Sun Ray Servers has higher than normal utilization.  You poke around a bit and see Bubba is a top consumer and running things that he shouldn't.  You break out your Sun Ray Remote Control toolkit....

Now that would have been funny. I wish I would have thought of that!

This works for my cluster group of sunrays. I'd like to see this put into the gui, so that you can vnc from the sunray session / view by server, as an extra option, none / terminate / suspend / or vnc Many Thanks for this document.

Nice enough I suppose, but what does it do that vino can't do already? I quite often use vino on SunRays for this sort of thing.

Vino is nice, if you have S10 U3 installed. But what if you don't have Gnome? Can vino remote control a CAM Session? Can you easily do screen captures to SWF with Vino? Can you be in "spy mode" like many customers want to have? Also Vino wasn't really designed with Sun Ray in mind. x11vnc however has many features that had Sun Ray in mind.

any plans to make this compatible with SRSS 4.2 ?

Hi Darkobas,
I don't have the bandwidth, but there are those who have already done so. I'd suggest sending out a query to the sun-rays.org mailing list (and ask why they haven't done any "put backs" either).
