Unlocking UniFi AC-Pro from the ceiling Mount


not directly related to VMware, but since more and more are using UniFi Equipment in the home lab, I would like to share this with you.

I was forced to renew my “not so nice looking" LAN Socket for my UniFi AC-PRO ceiling mounted.

Installing Workspace ONE UEM Agent on devices in use, but without any software deployment solution


Two months ago, I got engaged in a customer project for Workspace ONE. On Key Requirement was the installation of the Workspace ONE UEM Agent (aka. AWAgent) on Windows 10 Devices (Notebooks and Clients) which were already handed over to the End users.  The IT of the Customer does not have any kind of software deployment tools like Microsoft’s SCCM or Symantec Altiris and so on. So, it was necessary to find a solution for deploying the agent without any additional tools, only GPO should be utilized.

So, what we need to do is strip our "problem" into two parts. First part installing the AWAgent without Local Admin Rights (LAR) and the second part stage the Windows 10 Device and automatically reassign the user.

Let us start with the first Part. First of all, we need our staging User. So, inside the Workspace UEM Console, we create a new User (Local user not an LDAP User) and give him the staging Permission.
