Hello, 

beginning with version 8.5 some ExtremeConnect modules in XMC are hidden.

From Release Notes:

“Beginning with Extreme Management Center version 8.5, the following ExtremeConnect modules are hidden by default: 

  • FiberlinkMaaS360
  • FntCommand

If you have enabled one or more of these modules, it should not be hidden in your network; however, ExtremeConnect may hide the module if it is disabled at any time. Hidden modules are still fully functional, but cannot be configured automatically by ExtremeConnect. To enable a hidden module, modify the configuration file manually.”

So far so good.

But my question is how can I enable the hidden modules?

Hi,

I am looking into using extreme connect for VMWare, or Intune… but I am not sure what benefits can you get from that?

 

Say VMWare, which I believe is still supported and not deprecated. Anyone using that?

 

Thanks,

Hi Chad,

I asked the GTAC what is the understanding for  deprecated.
The answer was: These modules are no longer tested and developed, but still supported. There are no plans to remove the modules.

Regarding the function you can find hints here in the ExtemeConnect manual:
