    Hi there,

     

    We have a new thin client (Wyse 5070) with ThinOS 9.1.5067. Normally when we buy a thin client it is plug and play (these are older models), but this new one doesnt seem to receive its wnos.ini.

    Therefore i used the ConfGen and created a new file and gave it the mac adress as its name, but this doenst work either.

    Our server works with a very old version of (i think) WDM, but i dont see a way to check this.

    is it maybe not possible for newer clients to work with those .ini files anymore?

     

    Sorry for my vague discription of everything but it has been a long time since i had to look at the thin clients and the WDM server

    ThinOS 9.x does not support ini files. You have to use Wyse Management suite to manage that version of Firmware. With that said, you can manually downgrade the device to 8.6 using the USBFT from the support site.

    Hi Jim,

     

    Thanks for the respons. I figured so i am trying to downgrade using the dell wyse usb tool but that one doesnt seem to find my usb disk. tried a lot but no luck so far. also there is one tc that runs on version 8.6 but this one also doesnt listen to the server anymore it seems (either that or i need different values in the ini file) so im trying to downgrade them even further down to below version 8.6.

    Since the tool isnt working for me i’ve contacted dell support on this. hopefully they come up with something so i can continue.

    You have to enable it in the BIOS . I don’t remember all options but I think it was

    – Typing “Fireport” to unlock the BIOS

    – disabling secure boot

    – enabling USB boot
