URGENT: WSM hotfix released to fix licensing issue

WSM - Provisioning

This is really an urgent information that has been sent out today to all WSM customers. Dell Wyse informed them to apply a just released hotfix to their WSM 4,x and 5.x servers as soon as possible but before beginning of June. The reason behind this, is an issue within the licensing mechanism. On June 2nd 2013 each license that has been applied to the servers will become invalid. The WSM server will interpret all licenses after that date as expired, resulting in stopping all functions of the server and no images are provisioned then.

To avoid that bevavior you should install that hotfix directly to all of your WSM server. The hotfix can be downloaded from the download site (

But what about customers still running WSM 3.x or earlier? These customers have two options. First is, if they have a valid maintenance, to upgrade their environment for free to WSM 5.01. If they don't have a maintenance then they either have to pay for the update or contact Wyse to get a new, free, valid and working license. This is, what you should do in this latter case:
a) Log in to the WSM admin console and click on the "About" link on the WSM admin portal (top right corner).
b) Take a screen shot of this page or using the snipping tool (windows 7 and higher) or similar tools take a screen snippet of the "Product License Information"
c) Paste this screen shot/snippet in an email and send it to Dell Wyse will respond to you with a new license file and instructions for installation

Less than 3 weeks to go. So hurry up and patch your environment.

WSM 5.0.1 is here

WSM - Provisioning

Just before Christmas Dell Wyse has thrown a nice little gift to all of us. They have released the new version of  their provisioning tool called WSM. For those of you, that are not familiar with that product, WSM is a great tool to push Microsoft OS like XP, Vista, Windows 7 and even Windows 8 to nearly any PC hardware in your company. This all happens purely over the network with nothing to be installed or maintained on the client system. If a client has to be replaced, you just replace the hardware and the server is streaming the selected OS to the client over the wire. That way you only have to manage one image for the entire company. No need to patch, manage, fix or update the image on all clients any more.
Any the best is, that on top of the OS you can also stream the desired applications independently of the OS.

In the new 5.0.1 version (BTW, no idea where version 5.0 stucks and why they directly jumped to 5.0.1), Dell Wyse has implemented

Do you think the acquisition of Wyse by Dell is good?

Finally Dell has great Thin Clients
Dell will probably kill the Wyse brand
The best that could happen to Wyse
