Even though some of us have all the fun of working on a daily basis with PowerFuse, we must not forget the folks who are new to this technology. This artice will show how to take ordinary utilities and use them within the PowerFuse environment. Using utilities is always a necessity, as eventhough PowerFuse does alot, there will always be specific conditions which may warrant extra tools…

As of yesterday, RES Software launched a new software utility called ESearch. ESearch is a utility to make search capabilities available in the RES PowerFuse shell. It’s a very small executable that can be downloaded from the RES Software Portal site here.

In case you wondered where this article went a couple of weeks ago, it had to be pulled and revised at the request of RES, as we incorrectly stated that you could get the tools at RES support. This is not currently the case. Anyway, this posting was really supposed to have be called Secret tools of the RES Engineer, but then all of a sudden, an old Gary Larson cartoon came to mind, and ruined everything… Damn you Mr. Larson!! ;-)
Okay… so maybe a spatula isn’t gonna make the 10 o’clock news, but perhaps some other tools which are little known, which are really nice to know about would peak your interest. There is just one catch to this. You’ll have to ask around for the utilities in this article as they were really only written for internal use, but several customers and integrators got copies of them. Please do NOT contact RES Support for these tools.
Nevertheless, you ought to know about them as they can help you speed up a troubleshooting session by having the information available. Perhaps RES will make these things downloadable in the future. If this happens, stick around, RESguru will let you know.

Today RES released a cool utility which will help existing XenApp customers implement PowerFuse way more swiftly. What the tool does is read existing published applications from a serverfarm, create the applications inside PowerFuse and create new PowerFuse managed published applications. It even reads any existing file associations configured in the Xenapp environment – Übercool!
There is a nice PDF which describes things well here: The Migration tool can be downloaded from RES here.
Remember, you saw it first on RESguru.com! ;-)
