    Hey guys

    i just started testing out the S90 units and i wanted to know the appropriate use of them in the production environment. Do they remote desktop from the S90 to the virtual dekstop or is everything they need locally installed? If they remote desktop to the virtual desktop, what would you put on the S90 locally that makes it different to a model like the S10?

    Also at the moment, i currently have a connection broker setup with S10 units deployed for users. All units pick up the connection broker and all users need to log in to the connection broker to get their desktop. With the wnos.ini file set to ‘Privilege=none’,it works quite well and the S10 units are easily replaceable if needed. How would i go about integrating the S90 into the connection broker environment?

    Thanks

    Windows XPe based units are a lot more complex then WTOS based ones.
    Normaly customers use XPe units to install some sort of applications locally, like special VPN clients, remote connections, SAP-GUI as a backup, etc…
    This is all of not much help in a VDI environment like yours.
    Latest XPe builds have the VDM client already pre-installed.

    You would have to configure one S90 in the way you want it to be and then use WDM to pull the whole image. This image can then be pushed out to all other S90 units.

    Yeah i didnt think they would work well in my environment, but the S10 units have trouble picking smart cards and i need a unit that can do that. We use the smart cards for online banking transactions. Any units with WTOS that allows smart card redirection from the unit to the VDI?

    Thanks

    But WTOS can map SC in an RDP session. Of course it is not mapping the SC reader directly in the session but it is mapping a PC/SC port in the session.
    What reader are you using?

    This card reader is a gem plus card reader given to us by our online banking associates. They also gave us a CD with the drivers and other tools. Your right, WTOS detects it, seen in the system information, but nothing comes up in the VDI session.

    Try connecting directly to the VDI session via RDP and configure to map SC. Do not use VDM or any other connection broker.
    Currently only Leostream CB is supporting SC in a VDI environment.
    VDM 3.0 will be able also but it is not released yet.
