4.7 is a great update.
– all secure connections. You can use HTTP or HTTPS to flash the units.
– new imaging process called “Merlin” (instead of “Wisard” – could it be that Wyse wants to be kind of magical?). This new process will flash a 512MB XPe unit in 2 1/2 minutes instead of 10-12 minutes now.
– non-pxe boot agent for XPe based units. Great one if you already have PXE solution running in your environment
regarding merlin imaging with a non-PXE process….does that mean i could now image xpe devices that are connected to the network wirelessly? This has been a big issue for me historically since most of our xpe devices are wireless (Hospital with mobile carts), and PXE does not support wireless…so when i have had updates that required a firmware image, we have to send a few techs in the field with laptops to do WSI re-imaging.
Of course the imaging speed would be a huge plus too.
