vSmith – new Workspace Portal has launched!
To: Smith Community
From: Office of Smith IT
We are pleased to announce today that we have launched a new updated version of the vSmith Workspace portal. When you visit workspace.rhsmith.umd.edu you will be taken to a launch announcement page where you can select to use the new portal, or continue to use the old version (the old version will remain available for a couple of weeks to allow our community to make the transition over at their own pace). If your browser has cached the old Workspace portal you can access the new one with this direct link: workspace3.rhsmith.umd.edu
With the new portal you can bookmark and build a library of only the apps and desktops that you most frequently use so you can access them more quickly. There’s no need to upgrade the vSmith VMware Horizon client that you currently use to open apps and desktops, and your applications will continue to work as they previously have.
Please note that we have brought forward the public launch of this updated service as an issue with the previous version last night was causing some ‘access denied’ error messages for some users. While our engineers are refreshing the databases to resolve the issue, anyone affected by this can use the new Workspace portal immediately.
