    Hi,
    I have a RAS installation and would really like to try out the Replace Desktop option to lock down the client machines but it's not there.
    According to the admin guide it should be but I can't find it. RAS v17.1.1.

    If anybody else has used it you might let me know where to go.
    Thanks.

    @MartinM19 It is still there in RAS v17.1.1.
    To access it, from the RAS console go to: "Device manager" > "Windows Device Groups" > right click on one of the groups or make a new one > "OS Settings"
    For the functionality to be enabled on the client device you are using, it will have to be enrolled in the group with desktop replacement option enabled.
    Details for how to do are in the RAS Admin manual: https://download.parallels.com/ras/v17/docs/en_US/Parallels-RAS-v17-Administrators-Guide/39273.htm
