About me

My name is Niels Geursen and I work as a consultant at Login Consultants.

I started my career in the year 2000. The past 17 year I learned the IT challenges from small to enterprise companies. In all these years I also got the opportunity to educate myself by following courses and doing exams for Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. This let to the following certification: MCSE 2012, CCE-V, VCP6-DTM and a lot more.

My experience is mainly focusing on end-user computing however I am currently trying to get familiar with VMware Airwatch to get the hang on Enterprise Mobility Management.

Hope you have fun reading my Blog!

When working with mandatory profiles these setting will not be preserved. Also in a ThinClient environment this behavior is not wanted. Because this will generate some helpdesk calls.
