Dell anounced Windows 10 IoT Enterprise clients

Dell just announced the launch of two new units.
Starting July 29th Dell has Windows 10 IoT Enterprise units in their portfolio. The units are based on the well-known D90Q and Z90Q hardware. This means they will come with a quad core processor (1.5 GHz and 2.0 GHz), 32GB of MLC flash and optional wireless support.
The first release will only include RDP10 and Citrix Receiver. VMware View, Ericom emulation and even Dell’s own Wyse vWorkspace clients will be missing in this release as they are not Windows 10 ready at the moment. There is an update planed for later this year.
They will be called Wyse 7490-Z90Q10 and 5490-D90Q10.

We HAVE Moved

Looks like we have finally finished the move of the old technicalhelp.de/freewysemonkeys.com site to this new CMS system.

I really hope you like the new design and find it easier to use.

Feel free to send me your suggestions, if you have some 😉

I was able to migrate all user accounts but the passwords are lost. Please use the “Forget Password” function to reset yours and get a new one. Sorry for that.

AD Group INI

Starting with ThinOS version 8.0_411 Dell has integrated a new option for INI file handling.

Now you can assign INI files based on AD group membership.
To do this you have to create a new folder beneath the /wnos/ini folder. It is called “adgroup”.
In this folder you can put INI files which are named like AD groups. Each AD group has to start with a predefined prefix.
In your global wnos.ini file you have to define this prefix first. Beside that you have to use SignOn=NTLM.
The full string could look like this:
SignOn=NTLM AdGroupPrefix=”ThinOS-“
Now create new groups in your AD which all start with “ThinOS-“ or whatever you have defined in your wnos.ini. Put the appropriate users in these groups and create the already mentioned INI files like this:
 ADGroup
Group nesting is not supported nor the membership in more than one group. The first matching group will be used.
