Pinned topic Setting and changing the library list in RDP

‏2012-10-05T14:11:33Z |
I have created a program that sets my library list on initial signon to RDP. Because I work in several different environments I have a need to change the library list several times a day. I find the add/remove/move options very cumbersome. Has anyone out there devised a method wherby the library list used by RDP can be changed programmatically?

    I don't change environments as frequently as you do but when I have that need I have found it useful to create connections for each environment.

    In my case it would be for multiple projects. I would create a connection for project 1 and specify the library list in the preferences. I would create a second connection for project two with the library list for that project. Same for project three, etc.

    If you use filter pools you can add them to each connection which is nice and saves time.

    I originally got the idea from an IBMer on the Rational team. Maybe this will help you out.

    Just to let you know that there's another forum that's dedicated to RDP:

    You might find it useful to follow that forum too.
