    Hi,
    I have installed a new instance of WDM 4.5. I used to have some nifty Default device configurations working with the 1200le/1125 and S10’s. This was setup using the notes on this fantasic site ;-). So in Rapport 4.4.1 i was able to drag and drop a winterm into a group, reboot it and it would have a specific config applied to it.

    Now i have imported the same scripts into WDM 4.5 but having real trouble even creating ‘a’ default device config. Has anyone else tried this with the new version of WDM and blazer?

    The release notes point to a couple of issues with DDC… Im thinking i should stick with 4.4.1 for a while? Keen to here others experiences… perhaps we could create a WDM 4.5 bug forum 😉

    What type of problems are you having?

    I know the 4.5 has the image and package requirement, but you can just used a dummy package as a placeholder.

    I have noticed some problems with DDC in v4.5 also. I set up a DDC with a dummy package as well as an image but it seems it gets stuck in a loop. i.e it detects the device needs the ddc – images – reboots but then detects it hasnt got the ddc again as it doesnt have the package installed so starts again reimaging!!?

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I think i will have to wait until the next version is released in the next week or two for these issues to be fixed.

    Hi Guys,

    I would be inclined to to agree with you on 4.5, lots of new features and new problems.

    Good news – WDM 4.5.1 has just been released and really looks solid. I would look at upgrading as soon as it can be downloaded from wyse.com. In particular the DDC issues with Blazer have been resolved and I found it easy to install (yay!)

    I would be interested to see what you guys think of this release and if its a good one.

    Also, TomFrank – your loop issue is because the DDC image name is not the same as the image version number. Search this site for the DDC with XPe document for a step by step guide. Also check out the creating Rapport views doc as this is really important with DDC.

    Cheers,
    -TT
