How do I enable the wyse xenith to recognize a local usb printer?
We have xen desktop 5.5, pvs 5.6 sp2, and a vmware back-end with only xeniths as the way to connect. I tried looking in the xen desktop HDX policies and enabled just able everything that had to do with printers or usb.

I just had the same issue and found that USB Printer Devices was excluded in the Session tab under Global configuration Settings (under Home) on the client. After removing the mark in "Exclude Printer Device" my printers where mapped again.
See page 67 in the admin guide how to configure this in xen.ini if applicable.

Hope this helps Smile

FYI I used the following line in XEN.ini to disable local disks being mapped network drive-style and enable USB device mappings.

Code:
SessionConfig=all mapdisks=no VUSB_DISKS=yes VUSB_AUDIO=yes VUSB_VIDEO=yes VUSB_PRINTER=yes

silly question: I do not have a WDM server set up, how do I configure the XEN.ini?

You don't need a WDM server to use xen.ini - just a web or ftp-server and setting DHCP options 161 (ip or FQDN of web/ftp server) and 162 (root path).
I have set up a web server (actually its the Xendesktop-WI I use) and placed a Wyse folder under wwwroot. xen.ini is placed in the wnos Iwhich is also where you can place the files for automatic software update of the Xenith) folder under the wyse folder and DHCP option 162 is set to "/".
There is a good description in the admin-guide on how to set op the options and there is a sample xen.ini file available for download from Wyse's web site.

Here is my xen.ini FYI:

Code:
;************************************************************************
;*                  Sample INI file (rename to xen.ini)                 *
;*      (Refer to Admin Guide for additional list of supported INIs)    *
;*                                                                      *
;************************************************************************

;; Wyse Xenith will only replace local engine if an upgrade is available

autoload=2

;; Specify a default domain to show at login page
;; (remove ';' to enable)

Domainlist=HOLSTEBRO

;; Specify timezone on client (in case of timezone passthrough)

TimeZone="GMT + 01:00"
TimeServer=10.1.0.1

;; You can choose to configure the location of XenDesktop server here
;; instead of using DHCP Option Tag #181
;; (remove ';' to enable)

;pnliteserver=10.100.4.200 ReconnectAtLogon=1

Tommy,
Thanks for you help. So here's what I have done so far:
-In the IIS admin of our server that is the web front for xendesktop, it now has the .ini and . MIME types per the WYSE instructions.
-I created a xen.ini that i can get to if i go to http://amr-xenweb/wyse/wnos/xen.ini
-The following link has what I've set up on the DHCP server for the options. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6560548/dhcp.PNG
As far as I can tell, the Xenith is not getting the xen.ini at all. The code below is the xen.ini I created. Let me know what else I need to do/where I screwed up.
Code:
; AMRESCO Xen.ini     Created by: March McLaughlin

autoload=0

Locale=English
SignOn=No
DomainList="amresco-inc.com"

IEEE8021X=yes network=wireless access=WPA2-PSK wpa2pskpwdEnc=PCGGLBCHMOAOJOGIIMEKNMENNKBKMMDK
Device=Wireless Mode=Infrastructure SSID=amresco Algorithm=SharedKey

SessionConfig=all mapdisks=no WyseVDA=yes VUSB_DISKS=yes VUSB_AUDIO=yes VUSB_VIDEO=yes VUSB_PRINTER=yes DefaultColor=2

your starting path needs to be / only. (The client will look for wyse/wnos/xen.ini relative to the root path).

Just to clarify - it was DHCP option 162 I was talking about above. Smile

I did use the ConfGen that was posted, and indeed it was easy to make the Xen.ini. Thank CG.
