Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE Overview
Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE allows both Dell and VMware customers to provide a virtually zero IT touch and virtually zero user downtime experience. Configurations, settings, and applications are preloaded at the Dell factory. Now, instead of users waiting hours (and hours) for apps and settings to download and apply, they can have a ready-to-work experience on first boot of the device. And if IT needs to perform a PC reset or recovery in the future, included Zero Touch Restore functionality allows applications and management to persist, minimizing user downtime.
Packaging up information for Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE is simple: the IT admin exports applications from Workspace ONE UEM as a provisioning package (.ppkg) and completes a wizard to generate a configuration file (unattend.xml).
To use Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE, you must participate in Dell Configuration Services. For more information, see https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/learn/system-configuration.
1. Supported Use-Cases
The Workspace ONE Configuration Tool helps you build special-purpose unattend.xml configuration files to be applied in the Dell factory as part of Factory Provisioning. This helps to domain join (domain, workgroup, AAD, AAD Premium) and enroll devices automatically on first-boot. This simplifies the creation of the unattend.xml configuration file for Windows 10.
Dell Provisioning for VMware Workspace ONE supports the following AD Types (use-cases):
- Active Directory Domain Join - ability to join the on-premises active directory domain. Device will need access to the domain when booting up for the first time in order to join the domain successfully.
- Azure Active Directory Basic - ability to join AAD without a premium license and still enroll into Workspace ONE UEM.
- Azure Active Directory Premium - ability to join AAD with the option of using Autopilot as well.
