    As the title says really, we have recently upgraded our WDM to 4.5.3 & we now can’t push an image to any of our V90L’s. The V90 image we have works fine both ways.

    We can pull an image from a V90L, but when we try & push it back we get a message saying: –

    The scheduled image is an old image and is incompatible with newer thin clients. Please choose a newer image which is compatible with the new thin clients.

    The devices check in ok with this image on them & I can push updates etc out to them no problem.

    If I check the script package for a V90 it reads: –

    [Version]
    Number=XXXXX
    Description=XXXXX
    OS=XP
    Category=Images
    USE_PXE=YES
    command=%imagewrite%
    BootFloppy=Rapportitf
    USE_REMOTE=YES
    ImageSize=1024

    If I check the script package for a V90L it reads: –

    [Version]
    Number=XXXXX
    ImageVersion=3.00435.1000
    Description=XXXXX
    OS=XP
    Category=Images
    USE_PXE=YES
    command=%imagewrite%
    BootFloppy=Rapportitf
    USE_REMOTE=YES
    ImageSize=1024

    The V90L has an extra line in refering to ImageVersion is this the cause of my problem? If so how do I change this?

    Got it sorted, had to add the following line into my rsp file to get it going: –

    ImageVersion=4.050571.1024

    Wyse added that ImageVersion tag as a hotfix for WDM 4.5.1 late last year before 4.5.2 was released. My understand is there were some minor manufacturing changes on the V90L which necessitated a specific minimal BIOS version for compatiblity. The ImageVersion line is to restrict old images from bricking new units.

    These are the minimum values (from the DB)
    XPE = 4.030556.512
    CE = 563.14
    LX = 6.3.2-52

    As long as your XPE image is newer than Build 556 then you can just add that line and be on your way. This was a big annoyance when I first came across it too, but better than bricking all the units.

    If its older than 556, then you should grab newer FW from wyse.com (yours at 571 is fine)
