    Hi, I am very new when it comes to WDM, WMS, Wyse. I currently have WDM version 5.0 Build 636 installed with 50 devices. I also have WMS web based with 100 devices. I would like to migrate the WDM devices to WMS. I downloaded WMS_Import_Tool_1_5_0_19.exe from Dell and it is stating that I need to be on version 5.7.2. I am not sure where to get that version update from. Can someone point me in the correct direction?

    To add to this the WDM version 5.0 is a free/trial version.

    The import tool will not help here.
    Make sure to install the latest available WDA agent on all clients as the first step.
    Are you using DHCP/DNS to point the clients to WDM or WMS?

    Not sure how I confirm the latest WDA agent, I am very new to these.

    I believe they are using DHCP to point to WDM.

    Check on the client itself. There you can find it either in the Systemtray or in the Control Panel – Installed Apps.

    this is far too old.
    Download a newer WMS Agent (WDA) from support.dell.com and install it on the client.

    I was able to install the WDA update on and successfully moved it to WMS.

     

    Is there a way for me to push the client out to all the devices from WDM or do I have to do each client individually?

    As WDM was able to push packages you should be able to create one and push it to all clients.

    I see the packages for the older software but I am not seeing how to create a new package and add it to WDM. Is there a guide somewhere on your site for the steps?

    To add to my above question. If I work in the package manager from what I am reading it is best to do a Device Image rather than a software package.

    I try to get an image from a device but get hit with a license issue.

     

    If I ‘Register a Configuration from a Device’ from the New Package Wizard the device I would like to use doesn’t appear and I an unable to use the search Criteria function.

     

    I also attempted to create an .rsp witht eh ScriptBuilder Utility and saved it but when I go to my test device and run the Package Distribution Wizard, the .rsp I created doesn’t appear and only a single device shows in the ‘List of Devices’.

    Well I feel I might be getting closer, I found in Package Manager > Agent Update I can use the Package Wizard to Register a Package. I went through the steps but it didn’t show up under Agent Update.

    It doesn’t matter in which category the package appears. This is just for your reference, nothing more.
