    I’ve heard of this prep4man utility for doing a customed image. Where do I find this command? 😯

    Prep4man is a internal tool used by wyse Se’s to re-package images ready to be loaded on to terminals in manufacturing. Your local friendly Wyse se will do this for you and supply the tools 🙂 (aka drop me an email)

    what can this tool do exactly?

    We’ve got quite a few images laying around, and we would like to edit them. i don’t care if its hard, but our Wyse SE is rather useless so we would prefer to do it ourselves.

    come on hook us up!!? 😈

    does this tool work for CE images too? or is there another tool for this?

    Its not really a tool as such as a set of scripts. Really all it does is set up an image ready to be loaded onto a terminal in the Wyse manufacturing plant. Its not much use in the field.

    The best way to edit XPe/NTe images is simply load them up on a terminal, make the changes and then pull the image with Rapport. CE is another story, there is heaps of ways to edit and deploy CE.

    What were you trying to do exactly? Let me know and I may do a story on it. I am working on a artical on customising CE and that will be up soon.

    I am trying to create a gold image for the V90/XPe device. I ran the prep 4 man script on my master reference V90 and it did its thing and prompted me with the Machine resealed message and prompted me to reboot. I wanted to check and see if it did what I expected and clicked ok Upon boot up, I had expected a mini-setup to run (as one usually sees after running sysprep on a Windows device). What I actually saw was nothing. The device booted into the OS as if I did nothing.

    any ideas

    Hi,

    You don’t need to run prep 4 man to create a gold image, Rapport will make the required changes for workstation images. Simply pull the image and push it out to the new devices. When they start they will create a new machine name on boot.

    Let me know if this does not explain it,

    Cheers!
