I am not able to reboot or shutdown devices from the right click menu in the WDM console. I also tested the “change device information” option as it has a check box for reboot machine. That doesn’t work either. Any ideas why rebooting from the WDM console isn’t working for me?
I know that some right click options work, because I am able to remote shadow from the right click menu. However, I would like to be able to do that without having someone on the other end accept it. Is there a setting for that somewhere?
I was also fighting with trying to send a reboot package to the devices when I found another post on the forum that said WTOS doesn’t understand the WDM scripting language. Which seems to contradict something else I read on freewysemonkeys: “in the case of WTOS we use a Rapport script to import the entire contents of the WNOS folder into Rapport and register it as a non PXE image.” Am I missing something there?
Thanks!7. February 2012 at 17:04 #21758
I figured out how to set up remote shadow without requiring input from a user on the other end.
Edit the wnos.ini with the following:
Also the settings can be found in Configuration Generator>Network>VNC10. February 2012 at 13:49 #21786rapidMember

I’m a newbie and facing the same problem. I’m not able to reboot/shutdown. I tried the “package distribution wizard” to distribute the reboot/shutdwon scripts. But in the update manager, I see their status as always scheduled. I tried shadow, and its working. Please help me to resolve this issue.10. February 2012 at 15:04 #21788ConfGenKeymaster

Have you tried the right-click Reboot option when clicking on the device?
The package will not work for sure.
BTW, WDM 4.7.2 is VERYYYYYYYY old.

Thanks for ur reply. Actually I’m using WDM 4.8.5(installed on Win 7 platform) with Wyse Zenith. Actually I wanted to send the shutdown/reboot to the xenith client. Is there any specific config file or any fine tuning that has to be done to make the setup work.8. March 2012 at 17:34 #21912
I opened a ticket with Wyse and the tech had me run some network traffic captures to see what was going on. When attempting a right-click reboot, no command went out over the network to the thin client, so we concluded it was a problem with the install. He recommended and upgrade to 4.9 – imagine that.
I don’t know that you having the same issue that I am, Rapid. You are trying to reboot Xenith devices (with the Zero engine) from a much newer version of WDM, whereas I am rebooting WTOS devices from 4.7.2 Also, when I tried sending reboot packages, I just got an error that they failed, instead of staying in scheduled state.
But good luck and I’ll post if upgrading fixes my issues… when I get the time to do the upgrade, that is.
