2 Overview
This chapter provides an overview of the Wyse WSM system. It explains the key
components and services of the system so you can get a feel for how the system works
before you install its various components.

Introducing Wyse WSM


Wyse WSM makes it possible for IT staff to deploy operating systems and applications on
demand to clients in near real-time. Wyse WSM offers these advantages over
conventional computing solutions:
• On-demand OS and applications provisioning: IT can provision operating systems
and applications to devices without having to visit individual desktops and without the
failures common to traditional software distribution solutions.
• Centralized management of software updates and patches: IT can be sure that
software is up to date all across the system, as well as eliminate downtime for
upgrades.
• Fast deployment of new applications: IT can deliver applications at any time to
respond to the organization’s up-to-the-minute needs.
• License management and metering: IT can control and monitor application license
usage throughout the organization, and in so doing efficiently purchase licenses based
on usage patterns.
• Management of application use: IT can determine which applications users
subscribe to, auto-subscribe applications to some users, and specify mandatory
applications for users.
• Scalability. IT can employ the Wyse WSM distributed architecture to support multiple
servers and, therefore, multiple clients by using a tiered-server deployment.
• Reporting. IT can quickly get reports about applications and system usage.
• Instantaneous recovery from hardware failure. IT can replace a device with a new
one and automatically download user data, applications, and an operating system to
the new device.
• Monitoring. IT can monitor and generate reports about clients, license usage, and
application usage.
4 Chapter 2

Wyse WSM Key Components


Wyse WSM provides streaming services through these key components:
• Simplified OS image creation tool: An OS image-creation tool that administrators
use to create OS images so that the images can be deployed to clients.
• Wyse WSM Publisher, an application packager: An application-packaging tool that
administrators use to create application images that can be deployed to end users.
• Wyse WSM Servers:
· Core Server. The primary WSM server that delivers OS images and application
images to clients and (optionally) to Edge Servers. Administrators manage OS
images and applications images throughout the network from the Core Server.
They accomplish this through the Wyse WSM Administrator Console. After
administrators create OS images and application images, they can stream them to
clients from the Core Server.
· Edge Servers. Additional WSM servers that provide streaming services to clients
for scalability purposes. Edge Servers are optional.
· Wyse WSM Administrator Console: A Web-based Administrator Console from
which an IT administrator can control the entire installation process.

Wyse WSM Services


Each Wyse WSM server — the Core Server as well as the Edge Servers — provides
these services:
• WSM Administration Web Service: Provides an administration interface for the Wyse
WSM.
• OS Authentication Service: Prevents unauthorized devices from connecting to the
WSM system. It informs each device which OS image it has been configured to
receive.
• OS Streaming Service: Responds to OS image requests from client devices.
• Application Authentication Service: Manages and tracks application licenses;
meters application usage.
• Application Streaming Service: Services end-user application client requests.
• Monitor Service: Monitors and controls the Wyse WSM services on the Wyse WSM
server. This service is in charge of detecting errors and outages, as well as stopping
and starting the servers and monitoring their server load.
• Content Distribution Service: Synchronizes the repositories of OS and application
images between the Core Server and remote servers.
• Multicast Boot Service: Multi-casts an OS image to devices when the system is set
up to provide the OS Image in multi-cast mode.
• DHCP Proxy Service: Responds to requests from PXE devices; prevents Wyse WSM
servers from responding to PXE requests from outside devices that are not part of the
WSM system.
• TFTP Proxy Service: Allows for thin client booting, data transfer, and so on.

3 Preparing for Installation
This chapter contains hardware and software requirements and the procedures you must
complete to prepare the environment for the Wyse WSM system installation. If you
configure multiple machines, you will repeat some of the steps. You must complete the
Wyse WSM Core Server and Wyse WSM Client installation steps for each related
machine being configured.

Recommended Technical Knowledge


Wyse recommends that the person who installs Wyse WSM have this technical
knowledge:
• Working knowledge of Windows Server 2000 and 2003.
• Working knowledge of client/server systems and technologies.
• A conceptual understanding of database systems and SQL server.
• Working knowledge and understanding of the Windows registry, including machine
profiles, user profiles, and software registry entries.
• Experience in an environment with some automated/centralized networking tools.
• Knowledge of Active Directory configuration.

Planning for Your Installation


This section describes the hardware requirements, software requirements, and system
and security credentials you need for a successful installation. It also offers a
pre-installation checklist so you can be ready to start installing.

Pre-Installation Checklist
Before you start begin installing, make sure you have met the requirements on this
checklist:
• Obtain and configure all hardware, as necessary.
• Obtain administrator rights on all systems to begin the server installations.
• Install Windows 2003 Server or Windows 2008 Server systems on all server machines.
Make sure all systems are up to date with current Microsoft service packs, patches,
and updates.
• Download and install Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 6.0 or later on all machines.
• Obtain a Server License File from Wyse (provided to you by e-mail) for the system (see
"Server License Files").
• Use the WSM Prerequisites file to install the Microsoft SQL Server (see "Installing
Microsoft SQL Server Using the WSM Prerequisites File"), if you do not already have a
8 Chapter 3

supported SQL Server installed and configured for use with WSM. Make sure the
server is running before you begin installing WSM.
• If needed, download and install the latest Microsoft SQL Server Service Pack (see
"Installing the Latest Microsoft SQL Server Service Pack").
• If you are planning to integrate Active Directory with Wyse WSM (see Administrators
Guide: Wyse WSMTM), make sure that the Core Server and the Active Directory Server
are part of the Domain before the administrator of the local system begins installing
WSM Core Server.

Hardware Requirements
Each machine must meet or exceed the minimum system requirements shown in Table 1.

Table 1 Server Hardware Requirements

Category Minimum Requirements Recommended

CPU 1 GHz CPU 3 GHz dual CPU or higher

RAM 512 MB 1 GB or higher

Disk Space 20 GB + AppSets size 100 GB (RAID) +


AppSets size (if
applicable)

Network Interface Card (NIC) 100 Mbps 1 Gbps

Note
These requirements may vary due to application and operating system sizes.

Software Requirements
Besides the Wyse WSM software, you must install the software shown in Table 2 on each
server. Installing the most up-to-date version of each software package is highly
recommended.

Table 2 Server Software Requirements

Component Software Requirements

Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP3 or later, Windows 2003


Server, or Windows 2008 Server

Database Server Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005, 2005 Express, or


2008

Directory Service (optional) Microsoft Active Directory


Preparing for Installation 9

System Security and Credentials


To keep the system secure, Wyse WSM uses various credentials. Most of these
credentials are common for system administrators. The only new credential is for the
Wyse WSM system itself. The following credentials require passwords when they are
installed:
• Wyse WSM Database: The database requires a username and password for
executing SQL queries. Each server in Wyse WSM requires this password to access
the database. This information is stored encrypted in the Windows registry after
installation. The default account is wsmdb; the default password is wsmdb.
• Windows Service: All Wyse WSM servers are required to run as Windows Service
with local system privileges.

Note
If you plan to integrate Active Directory with Wyse WSM without SSL, you
must ensure that the WSM OS Authentication service is running with the
credentials of an Active Directory user with privileges to create and manage
computer accounts (for example, a member of the Account Operator group).
For more information about integrating Active Directory with Wyse WSM
without SSL, see Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.

• Wyse WSM: To administer the Wyse WSM provider environment, a default account
named admin must be created in the system. This account enables you to log on for
the first time and to configure the system. You can change the default password
(admin) after you log in for the first time.

Server to Server Communication Ports


The servers communicate through the port attribute in the Server table. These values are
not exposed through the Administrator Console. However, a mechanism is in place to
resolve port conflicts at startup. When the server detects a port conflict, it will try to
allocate another port above it (for example: 5000 + 1, 5000 + 2, 5000 + 3, and so on). It
will try for a maximum of 100 times before failing.
The following is a list of servers and default Server/Server communication ports:
• OS Authentication Service (Default Port: 6910)
• OS Streaming Service (Default Port: 6911; note that this port can be configured to a
different port by an administrator through the Administrator UI)
• Application Authentication Service (Default Port: 8001)
• Application Streaming Service (Default Port: 8002)
• Monitor Service (Default Port Range: 5000-5100)
• Content Distribution Service (Default Port: 20248)
• Multicast Boot Service (Default Port: 10703)
• DHCP Proxy Service (Default Port: 67)

Note
Ensure that these ports are open for proper communication between servers.
If you have a firewall enabled on any server where Wyse WSM is installed,
you must also ensure that the following ports are configured as follows:
Content Distribution Service Client Port (Default Port: 10802)
NetBIOS Name Service (Default Port: 137)
TFTP Service (Default Port: 69)
10 Chapter 3

Domain Names
It is important to use DNS entries for mapping IPs to servers. Although you can use IP
addresses, it will make scaling and system changes more difficult. This entry point DNS
will be used to allow the client to talk to the server farm. The DNS name that is used
should be entered into the machine name when configuring the core server (as described
in "Installing and Configuring the WSM Core Server"). Also, the client port configured in
that section will be the port used by the clients and will need to be configured in both the
firewall and load-balancing switch. Wyse WSM requires a minimum of two public IP
addresses with DNS entries.

Server License Files


You need to obtain license files to start the system and register network devices (license
files are provided to you in e-mail by Wyse). Wyse Technology uses license files to control
client seats and prevent software piracy. A license file is encrypted using a PKI to sign
each key based on x509 SSL Certificate.
You need a key for any of the following reasons:
• adding additional network devices
• license expiration
License files are stored in the database in an encrypted format. You can add the license
file to the system by using the Administrator Console (after the server installation is
complete). For instructions on adding the licenses file, refer to "Installing and Configuring
a WSM Edge Server." For more details on the Administrator Console, refer to the
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.

Installing Microsoft SQL Server Using the WSM Prerequisites File


In most cases, you can install an SQL Server on the same machine as the Wyse WSM
servers for a single-server installation. To do so, it is highly recommended that you use the
WSM Prerequisites InstallShield Wizard (using the WSM_Prerequisites.msi file) to easily
and automatically install everything you need for an SQL Server 2005 Express installation
(including Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0). Simply double-click the
WSM_Prerequisites.msi file and follow the wizard.

Caution
During the WSM Prerequisites InstallShield Wizard installation, do not close
the Ready to Install the Program window (which continues to show in the
background during installation) and do not click Install more than once.
Doing either of these will prevent a successful installation.

Note
For instructions on installing your own SQL Server, refer to "Installing Your
Own SQL Server."
Preparing for Installation 11

Configuring a DHCP Server


A DHCP Server must be installed and configured on your network to provide IP addresses
to your thin clients. For reference, the parameters shown in Table 3 must be specified.

Table 3 DHCP server options

DHCP
Option
Number Purpose DHCP Option Value for the Thin Client

03 Gateway Specific to the network.


If a DNS server is not on the local area network,
then specify the IP address of the gateway for the
local area network in which the client resides.
Otherwise, this option is optional.

6 Installing and Configuring the WSM
Client
This chapter provides the detailed procedures you must complete to install the Wyse
WSM Client. Although you can select custom installation configurations during the
installation, it is recommended that you use the default configurations.

Note
Be sure you have completed all pre-installation requirements as described in
"Preparing for Installation" before you begin installing the WSM Client.

Preparing to Install the WSM Client


This section contains the procedures you must complete to prepare the environment for
the WSM Client installation. Before you begin installing the WSM Client, you must first
decide where and how you want to install the WSM Client and complete all pre-installation
requirements for the installation environment you want. After preparing the environment,
you can install the WSM Client as described in "Installing the WSM Client."

Note
The Reference Device is the device from which you initially capture the OS
image; subsequently, the Reference Device is used for applying patches to
this OS image. The Reference Deice has a hard disk and a locally installed
Windows operating system. After an OS image is captured from the
Reference Device, other devices can be configured to boot from this OS
image file in shared mode. Because other devices will boot from the
Reference Device’s OS image, this image should be configured to meet the
needs of all devices that will boot from it. The best practice is to reserve the
Reference Device for use by the Administrator and not assign it to end users.
This way, the Administrator can easily deploy and test OS images by using
the Reference Device.

Installing the WSM Client on Wyse Thin Clients


If you are planning to install the WSM Client on Wyse thin clients, you must complete the
following:
• Access to reference device VRO with 4GB of flash.
• Use USB CD-ROM drive. Although you can use other USB CD-ROM drives, the
following are certified for use.
• IBM USB CDROM, Model Part Number 00N8239
• Addonics USB CDROM, Model Part Number AECD2K32UM.
• Install the Microsoft operating system on the flash.
26 Chapter 6

Installing the WSM Client in a VMware Environment


If you are planning to use Wyse WSM in a VMware environment, you must complete the
following:
• Create a target VM machine on an ESX Server as described on the VMware Web site
and install the Microsoft operating system in VM.
• Use USB CD-ROM drive. Although you can use other USB CD-ROM drives, the
following are certified for use.
• IBM USB CDROM, Model Part Number 00N8239

Authentication Service (this address is the same as the Core Server). The default
Port information is automatically entered.
• Enter the Imaging Server Info IP address to be used by the WSM OS Streaming
Service (this address is the same as the Authentication Server Info IP Address).
The default Port information is automatically entered.
• Enter the Web Server Info Port address, if necessary. This is the port on which the
Web server runs. The default is entered automatically.
• Enter the IOS Streaming Max Packet Size. This is the maximum data size of OS
streaming packets sent from the server to the client; the default value is 1420. If
your network, to meet encryption or other types of requirements, requires a custom
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) for IP packets, you can adjust this number to
restrict the size of the packets. Set the value to 1370 to yield an MTU of 1398 (the
maximum OS streaming data size [1370], plus the UDP header size [8], plus the IP

8. Click Finish to complete the OS Image capturing process.


9. After completing the procedures in this section, continue with "Configuring the OS
Image for Network Mode."

Comparing Network and Mobile Mode


An OS image can be provisioned to devices in two modes:
• Network mode - The device must always have a LAN connection to the WSM server
(see "Configuring the OS Image for Network Mode").
• Mobile mode - The OS image is provisioned to the hard disk on a laptop or other
mobile device so that the device can operate without being connected to the server.
The device can be disconnected from the server and still be operational (see
"Configuring an OS Image for Mobile Mode").

Note
Whichever mode is in use, the OS image itself remains the same; it is not
modified in any way. The Network/Mobile modes apply to devices, not OS
images. The same OS image can be used by Network mode devices and
Mobile mode devices simultaneously. By choosing a mode, you are deciding
how the device receives the OS image — over the network or cached to the
local disk.
34 Chapter 6

Configuring the OS Image for Network Mode


After capturing an OS Image to a Core Server, you must, using the Administrator Console,
configure the OS Image for use in Network mode.

Note
When users start the WSM Client device for the first time, they may
encounter a WSM Client Login in progress message. This will occur for all
users who log in and are not yet registered in the WSM Database.
Completing the procedures in this section prevents these users from
encountering these messages.

To configure the OS Image:


1. Log in to the Administrator Console, add the OS Image you created in "Capturing an
OS Image to the Core Server," and assign the OS Image to the Core Server. For
procedures on adding an OS Image and assigning it to the Core Server, refer to the
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.

Note
When adding the OS Image, be sure to select the No Cache (Private Mode)
option for Mode.

2. Reboot the machine to which you installed the WSM Client and use the following
guidelines for the DOS prompts:
• You must enter the client name.
• Entering a description is optional.
• Be sure you select the vdisk you just added in "Capturing an OS Image to the Core
Server."
• Press any key to restart the system.

Note
Upon system restart, close the WSM Client Login in progress message that
appears (right-click the minimized application in the taskbar and select Close
to close the window).

Figure 35 WSM Client Login in progress message

3. Upon system restart, the System Settings Change message appears; when this
message appears, click No to close the window. Note that this is a good time to clean
up or customize your environment (for example, selecting the desktop background,
and so on, prior to sharing the OS Image on multiple client machines).
Installing and Configuring the WSM Client 35

Figure 36 System Settings Change message

4. After you have completed customizing your environment, shut down the client
machine.
5. After the client machine has shut down, log in to the Administrator Console.
6. Edit the OS Image you created in "Capturing an OS Image to the Core Server," so that
either the Persistent Cache (Shared Mode) or Volatile Cache (Shared Mode) option
is selected for the Mode.
After completing the procedures in this section, the OS Image is ready to be used by
multiple client machines. For more information, see Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.

Note
In the future, if you want to copy or move an OS Image from one streaming
server (for example, a lab environment) to another streaming server (for
example, a production server), or if you want to change the current Active
Directory integration mode (Enabled or Disabled), then that OS Image must
be re-configured as described in "Reconfiguring an OS Image."

Configuring an OS Image for Mobile Mode


To configure an OS image for Mobile mode, follow these basic steps:
1. Capture an OS image for the device (see the previous section in this chapter). You only
need to complete this step once.
2. In the WSM console, choose Mobile Disconnected as the Connection Type (see
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM for more information about adding network and
mobile devices). Choosing this option tells WSM that the OS image must be
provisioned (or cached) to the device’s local hard disk. Note that the actual
provisioning (or copying) doesn’t begin immediately.
3. Have the user reboot the device. The device will boot from the network initially. After
the user logs in, the provisioning process will either start automatically (an enabled
force provision) or when the user initiates it (a disabled force provision).
To configure and provision additional devices for Moble mode, start with step 2. You don’t
have to capture a new Network OS image for each additional mobile device.

Warning
Provisioning a mobile device erases all data currently on the device’s hard
disk. Make sure mobile users understand that they will lose data currently on
the hard disk when they provision an up-to-date OS image from the server.
36 Chapter 6

Note
In order to download an OS image for Mobile mode, the mobile device
requires at least twice the amount of disk space as the OS image plus
100MB. For example, if the OS image being provisioned is 6GB, the mobile
device requires at least 12GB+100MB of free disk space to accommodate
the image.

See Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM for more for information about converting a
device from Network mode (the default) to Mobile mode.
7 Installing and Configuring a WSM
Edge Server
This chapter provides the detailed procedures you must complete to install a Wyse WSM
Edge Server. Although you can select custom installation configurations during the
installation, it is recommended that you use the default configurations.

8 System Maintenance
This chapter contains information to help you successfully maintain the Wyse WSM
system.

Passwords
Wyse WSM uses three sets of username and password credentials. The following list
describes how to change the passwords:

Note
It is strongly recommend that administrators implement a password policy.

• Wyse WSM Database – If you need to change the database user account password
(default is wsmdb@123), you must change the account password on the database
itself and then restart the Administrator service (Administrator Console). The next time
you log into the Administrator Console, the Database Configuration page displays
allowing you to edit the database configurations (including the user account password).
After changing the database configurations you must restart all services on all servers
for the changes to take effect.
• Windows Service – If you change the windows system password on the administrator
user, which is used to start the Wyse WSM services servers, then you will need to
update the services. This is can be accomplished under the Management Console for
Windows Services by selecting the Log On tab and changing the account password.
• Wyse WSM – To change the administrator account password for the Wyse WSM
provider environment, log in to the Wyse WSM as an administrator, select Change
Password, and use the Change Password page.

Logs
Errors pertaining to the Wyse WSM and related components are logged to the System
Event Viewer. Descriptions of errors regarding licensing, server connections, database
problems, configuration errors, and so on, are available through the System Event Viewer.
Wyse WSM stores log files in the database and on your file system. These have a set size
and will rollover when they become too large (making the system self-maintaining). The
default size of these logs is 10,000,000 bytes.
The Profile Log is a log of communication statistics on the server side giving information
on how long request queue is at a given time, the effective bandwidth amount of requests
received so far, and the type of requests received so far. It is located at the
/server-install/log folder with the name in the format of:
prof-<erver-id>-<random>.txt. Format: Date [universal-time]
[start-time] [delta-time] [request-count] [S/M] [CLIENT/CACHE]
[IP address] [app-id] [fileID,pageID] (S=single, M=multiple)
44 Chapter 8

Backup Recovery
It is highly recommended that all system data is backed up for recovery purposes. Wyse
WSM stores all system, topology, user, application, and usage data within the database.
Since all information is contained in the Wyse WSM Database, backing up this database
enables you to recover all system data. Use standard backup procedures common to
database servers. For fault-tolerant systems, it is also recommended to replicate the
database for fail-over.

System Monitoring
Wyse WSM comes with built-in monitoring tools that can be used to watch and check the
health of the system. When an administrator logs into the Administrator Console, the
System Overview page is shown. The System Overview page allows you to quickly view
important summary information for each functional area of the Wyse WSM system. It also
provides links to all of the functional areas so you can easily perform many of the
Administrator duties that are required to run and maintain your Wyse WSM environment.
For example, the Overview page allows you to quickly see that a server requires your
attention (since Wyse WSM has noted this server problem in the Requires Attention area
and provides you a link to the Server functional area page that you need to address the
message).
For fault-tolerant provider systems, it is recommended to have system hardware
monitoring in place. Third-party system monitoring software can be configured to watch
and report on system status, including:
• Ping availability and response times
• % CPU Utilization
• Memory Available
• Bandwidth consumption
The following list provides a few examples of system monitoring software:
• Tivoli by IBM
• Big Brother by Quest software
• Nagios by Nagios
• Performance Monitor by Microsoft
9 Upgrading Wyse WSM
This chapter provides the steps you need to complete to upgrade your Wyse WSM system
from a previous version.

Preparing for Upgrade Installation


To prepare for the upgrade installation:
1. Back up your WSM database before you begin the upgrade process.
2. Schedule the upgrade for a time when you can upgrade all of the servers at the same
time.
3. Ensure that all devices are shut down during the upgrade process.

Performing the Upgrade


To upgrade your Wyse WSM system from a previous version, you must perform the
upgrade process in the following order:
1. Core Server (see "Upgrading the Core Server and Edge Servers").
2. All Edge Servers (see "Upgrading the Core Server and Edge Servers").

Note
Application Images do not need to be upgraded. All Application Images of
previous Wyse WSM versions are compatible with the latest Wyse WSM
version.

Upgrading the Core Server and Edge Servers


In the Wyse WSM upgrade installation, there is a single installation package for both the
Core Server and the Edge Server(s). You must run the same installation package
(WSMServer.exe) on both the Core Server and all of the Edge Servers that you have in
your current Wyse WSM installation.
During upgrade installation, the installation package will:
1. Check your current server for an existing installation of WSM.
2. Prompt you for an upgrade confirmation after finding that previous WSM components
are installed.
46 Chapter 9

3. Prompt you for confirmation of the existing database settings.

Caution
It is recommended that you select the existing database settings and not
change them at this time. If you need to change the location of the database,
you must completely uninstall your current Wyse WSM installation (see
"Uninstalling Wyse WSM Software"), and then install the new Wyse WSM
version on the same machine according to the instructions in this guide.

4. Remove the existing WSM components.

Caution
During the upgrade installation for the servers, a message may appear
informing you that a reboot is needed after the existing WSM components
have been removed. Do not reboot the servers at this time. Click OK to close
the message.

5. Install the new WSM components.


6. Retain the existing WSM settings.
7. Add default values for the new WSM features that are available.

Note
After the upgrade installation is successfully completed, a message will
appear prompting you to reboot before the new WSM components can be
used from the servers. You must reboot the servers at that time.

• Content Distribution Service - Allows you to synchronize the repositories of OS and
Application images between the Core and remote servers.
• Multicast Boot Service - Allows you to multi-cast the operating system information
to devices when the system is setup to provide the OS Image in multi-cast mode.
• DHCP Proxy Service - Allows you to prevent any unauthorized devices from
connecting to the WSM system. It also prevents WSM from responding to other
PXE requests from devices that are not part of the WSM system.
• TFTP Proxy Service - Allows for thin client booting, data transfer, and so on.
Troubleshooting 53

Note
To start or stop a service, right-click on the service file (for example, WSM
Administration Web Service) and select Start or Restart (to start the service)
or select Stop (to stop the service).

Reconfiguring an OS Image
If you want to copy or move an OS Image from one Core Server (for example, a lab
environment) to another Core Server (for example, a production server), then that OS
Image must first be re-configured.
Similarly, if you want to change the current Active Directory integration mode (Enabled or
Disabled), then that OS Image must be re-configured.

Note
These re-configuration procedures must be done on a client machine that
has been booted from this OS Image in No Cache (Private Mode). For
procedures on adding an OS Image and assigning it to a server, refer to the
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.

To re-configure an OS Image:
1. (Only required if you want to change the current Active Directory integration from
Disabled to Enabled) Join the OS Image to the domain you specified (when you added
the OS Image using the Administrator Console as described in "Capturing an OS
Image to the Core Server") by using the Microsoft procedures for joining a domain,
reboot the system, and continue with Step 2.
2. Login as a user with administrator privileges on the client machine and locate the
WSMClientPostConfig.exe (default location is C:\Program Files\Wyse\WSM\os).
54 Chapter 10

Figure 55 WSMClientPostConfig.exe

3. Double-click the WSMClientPostConfig.exe to open the WSM Client Post


Configuration window.
4. Use the following guidelines to complete WSM Client Post Configuration dialog box:
• Depending on whether or not you want to integrate WSM with Active Directory,
select or clear the Enable Active Directory Integration check box.
• If you want to change the WSM Core Server settings, select the WSM Core Server
settings check box and enter the new IP Address of the Core Server, and Port
settings of the WSM OS Streaming Server.
5. Click OK.
6. Shut down the client machine.
7. Log in to the Administrator Console and edit the OS Image so that either the
Persistent Cache (Shared Mode) or Volatile Cache (Shared Mode) option is
selected for the Mode. For procedures on editing an OS Image, refer to the
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.
8. If the intention of this re-configuration was to move the OS Image to a different Core
Server, the OS Image can be now copied to that new Core Server, and added to the
new Core Server through the Administration Console. For procedures on adding an
OS Image to a server, refer to the Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM.
After completing the procedures in this section the OS Image is ready to be used by
multiple client machines.
Troubleshooting 55

Hostname and IP Address Changes


If the Hostname or IP Address of a server is changed, WSM will attempt to automatically
detect and reconfigure itself:
• IP address of an edge or core server is changed — If the IP address of an edge or
core server changes, there is an automatic update of the corresponding WSM Data. If
for any reason this automatic update fails, a message is displayed in the overview
page to reflect this inconsistency. In this situation, you must reconfigure the system
manually according to your required configurations (for configuration guidelines, refer
to the Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM).
• Name of an edge or core server is changed — If the name of an edge or core server
changes, there is an automatic update of the corresponding WSM Data. If for any
reason this automatic update fails, a message is displayed in the overview page to
reflect this inconsistency. In this situation, you must reconfigure the system manually
according to your required configurations (for configuration guidelines, refer to the
Administrators Guide: Wyse WSMTM).
• Hostname of the SQL Server machine is changed — If the hostname of the SQL
Server machine is changed, the SQL Server must be reconfigured to continue to
function correctly. If your SQL Server is on the same machine as your WSM Server
software and you have used the default WSM password (password@123), then WSM
will automatically reconfigure the SQL Server. If for any reason this automatic update
fails, or the SQL Server is installed on a different machine than your WSM Server
software, a message is displayed in the Overview page to reflect this inconsistency.
Use the link provided in this message to open a page where you can enter a username
and password and make this update manually. WSM will then reconfigure the SQL
Server.

Uninstalling Wyse WSM Software


To uninstall Wyse WSM software, use the Windows Add or Remove Programs tool (follow
the Windows procedures for removing a program).

Note
Some uninstallations may require a reboot.

B Booting Wyse WSM on PXE and
Non-PXE Networks
To download a Wyse bootstrap file and begin streaming a Wyse WSM client, many
networks use Intel’s PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment, also called “pixie”). PXE is
supported in many BIOS, but not all networks are configured to use PXE.
This appendix describes how to boot Wyse WSM clients on networks that don’t support
PXE or that haven’t been modified to support PXE or standard DHCP. It also describes the
PXE and non-PXE boot-up process, the prerequisites for performing a non-PXE boot-up,
and how to boot Wyse WSM in a non-PXE network.

Comparing PXE and Non-PXE Boot-Ups


The boot-up process for Wyse WSM clients is different in the PXE and non-PXE
environment. This section examines the boot-up process, boot-up requirements, and
boot-up features in PXE and non-PXE networks.

PXE and Non-PXE Boot-Up Processes


The PXE and non-PXE boot-up processes are different. This section compares the
different boot-up processes.
In each environment, the bootstrap file resides in a different location:
• PXE environment: The WSM PXE bootstrap file (vldrmi13.bin) resides on a network
TFTP server that is accessible by the WSM client.
• Non-PXE environment: The WSM non-PXE bootstrap file (secrmi13.bin) resides on a
hard disk, floppy disk, or USB key attached to the WSM client.
The boot-up process in the PXE and non-PXE environment is as follows:

PXE Boot-Up Non-PXE Boot-Up


1 The WSM client boots up with the LAN/ The WSM client boots up to the hard

2 In BIOS, the PXE client is executed. BIOS loads and initiates the WSM

PXE and Non-PXE Boot-Up Requirements


The requirements for PXE and non-PXE boot-ups are as follows:

PXE Boot-Up Non-PXE Boot-Up


WSM Client Must support PXE v0.99 or Must support PXE v2.0 or above. (PXE is
BIOS above. not used, but the UNDI APIs within PXE
support must be present for the non-PXE
bootstrap file to communicate with the
network. Some BIOS do not load UNDI
support when the PXE Boot option is not
used. A WSM non-PXE bootstrap will fail
with a “No APIs” error when running on
such BIOS.)
If the non-PXE bootstrap file resides on a
USB key, BIOS must support booting up
to a USB key.
DHCP server Must support PXE. Support is optional. If not supported, the
user can enter a static IP for the WSM
client.

Non-PXE Bootstrap Deployment


To boot a Wyse WSM client on a network that doesn’t support PXE, the bootstrap file must
reside on a local storage device attached to the WSM client, and the WSM client BIOS
must be able to boot to the storage device where the non-PXE bootstrap file is installed.
Following are deployment options and setup instructions for booting a Wyse WSM client
from a non-PXE bootstrap file located on a floppy disk, hard disk or flash drive, or USB
key.
Wyse supports these non-PXE boot media and WSM client combinations:
• Wyse Vx0 or VLx0 thin clients: USB key, USB floppy disk.
• X86-based PCs: Hard disk, built-in and USB floppy disk.
• VMware virtual session: Floppy disk (in floppy disk image file format).

Launching Non-PXE from a Floppy Disk


A WSM non-PXE boot floppy image can be downloaded from the Wyse Knowledgebase
at this address: www.wyse.com/serviceandsupport/support/kbase.asp.
Configure a VMware virtual session floppy device as follows:
1. Select the WSM non-PXE boot floppy image file provided by Wyse.
2. Connect at power up.
Power up the virtual session when you have finished configuring the virtual session floppy
device.
Configure Wyse thin clients and X86-based PCs as follows:
1. Use any third-party tool (such as dskimage) to program a 1.44MB floppy disk from the
WSM non-PXE boot floppy image you downloaded from the Wyse Web site.
2. Configure the WSM Client BIOS to boot from the built-in or USB floppy disk.
3. Plug in the WSM non-PXE boot floppy and power up the WSM client.
62 Appendix B

Launching Non-PXE from a Hard Disk or Flash Drive


This section explains how to prepare a non-PXE hard disk or flash drive for WSM
non-PXE bootstrap and how to boot from a non-PXE hard disk or flash drive.

Preparing the Hard Disk or Flash Drive


Use the WSM Bootstrap Utility to prepare a hard disk or flash drive so you can use it for a
WSM non-PXE bootstrap. This application is available in the client utilities package.

Note
You cannot create a bootstrap partition on a bootstrap partition previously
created by the WSM Bootstrap Utility. Even if you specify the size of the
partition to be the required 8MB, Windows in most cases rounds the size of
the partition to less than 8MB, rendering the bootstrap invalid. To create a
new bootstrap partition, either erase the old partition and allocate 8MB or
more to it, or create a new partition larger than 8MB.

After you start the utility, you see the WSM Bootstrap Utility dialog box.

Figure 56 WSM Bootstrap Utility dialog box

Follow these steps to prepare a hard disk or flash drive for a WSM non-PXE bootstrap:
1. On the Available Disks drop-down list, choose a drive connected to the system.
Network drives and mapped drives are not listed.
2. On the Drive to Format drop-down list, choose which drive you want to format as the
drive for the WSM non-PXE bootstrap (if a hard disk has existing partitions, all
available partitions will be listed in the Drive to Format drop-down list).
After you choose a drive, the Drive Details section of the dialog box provides
information about the drive you selected. Review this information to make sure the
drive you selected is sufficient for the WSM non-PXE bootstrap:
· Type: Lists the type of drive you selected. Hard disks and flash drives are fixed.
· Format: Lists the format that the drive supports—FAT, FAT32, or NTFS.
· Capacity: Lists the storage capacity of the drive. The minimum capacity
requirement for a non-PXE boot partition is 8MB.
· Partition: Indicates whether the partition you selected is an active partition.
3. Click the Create button to begin creating a non-PXE bootstrap partition on the drive
you selected.
Booting Wyse WSM on PXE and Non-PXE Networks 63

The WSM Bootstrap Utility does the following:


1. Changes the drive’s partition information to show 8MB only.

Note
Even if the drive being partitioned is more than 8MB in size, if you select it as
the WSM non-PXE bootstrap drive, its size is reduced to 8MB and the
remaining capacity is wasted. However, you can reuse the wasted space by
creating another drive using Windows’ Disk Management Console.

2. Formats the drive with the FAT12 format, makes it Active (i.e., bootable), and installs
the WSM non-PXE bootstrap.

Warning
The partition will be repartitioned and reformatted. Any existing files on the
partition will be erased.

In the case of a raw disk with no existing partitions, clicking the Create button begins
creating a non-PXE bootstrap partition on the raw disk. The utility creates an 8MB partition
in FAT12 format, makes it bootable, and installs the non-PXE bootstrap file.

Booting from a Non-PXE Hard Disk or Flash Drive


Follow these steps to boot from a non-PXE hard disk or flash drive:
1. Make sure your WSM client BIOS is configured to boot from the local hard disk.
2. Power up the WSM client.

Launching Non-PXE from a USB Key


To program a USB key as the WSM non-PXE bootstrap partition, the USB flash key must
be preformatted to a bootable hard drive in the FAT16 or FAT32 format. Formatting drives
for FAT16 or FAT32 can be accomplished with any third-party tool that makes bootable
USB keys.

Preparing the USB Key


Follow these steps to prepare the non-PXE USB key:
1. Use a third-party tool to format a USB key to a bootable hard drive in FAT16 or FAT32
format. Note that floppy drive partitions are not acceptable.
2. With the USB key plugged in, launch the WSM Bootstrap Utility.
3. Select the drive letter to which the USB key is mounted.
4. Click Create.
The WSM Bootstrap Utility installs a WSM non-PXE bootstrap file on the USB key. The
drive is not re-formatted; any existing files on the drive are preserved.
64 Appendix B

Booting from a Non-PXE USB Key


Follow these steps to boot to the WSM client:
1. Configure the WSM client BIOS to boot to the USB key.
2. Power on the WSM client.

Configuring BIOS to Boot to the USB Key


Different BIOS have different configuration fields for setting boot priorities and options.
Following are instructions when working with Wyse Vx0 thin clients:
• Boot priorities can be set on the Advanced BIOS Features page.
• Boot Other Device should be enabled. Alternatively, select Hard Disk as one of the
First/Second/Third Boot Devices. If an IDE hard disk or flash drive is installed, make
sure USB-HDD0 is set to the highest priority under the Hard Disk Boot Priority setting.

Note
Some BIOS do not work well with certain USB keys. Such BIOS may not be
able to read the USB key at all, or experience long delays when writing on
the USB key. If the BIOS fails to read the USB key, WSM non-PXE bootstrap
will not be able to run.

Entering Network Configuration Information for Non-PXE Boot-Ups


In a network that does not have a DHCP server, the WSM non-PXE bootstrap file will fail
to obtain the network configuration information from the standard DHCP server. To provide
this information, the user must enter a valid IP address for the client computer, and,
optionally, the gateway IP, subnet mask, and DNS IP on the opening screen (you can
press Esc to bypass a specific input request if you don’t know the information being
requested). Finally, the user must enter at least one WSM Authentication Server IP so that
the client computer can boot up through the WSM server.

Note
Network configuration information is saved in permanent storage so that it
can be used on subsequent boot-ups. To erase previously entered network
configurations, press the G key on boot-up. Users will then be presented with
a G-key menu with one of the options displayed as “<option number>: Clear
previously saved network configurations and Login Server lists?”. Enter
<option number> and confirm the operation by typing “yes” when prompted.
C Installing Your Own SQL Server
In special cases of a large production environment, it is recommended that you install the
Database Server on a server machine that is separate from the Wyse WSM servers. WSM
supports three databases: SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2005
Express. Make sure that your network is configured to allow all servers to communicate
with your database on the configured SQL port. All servers will authenticate with the
database using configured credentials. The following sections include instructions for
installing the supported jdatabases.

Caution
You should refer to the documentation provided by the database vendor for
complete installation instructions, performance enhancements, and setup.

Note
IMPORTANT: In most cases, you can install an SQL Server on the same
machine as the Wyse WSM servers for a single-server installation. To do so,
it is highly recommended that you use the WSM Prerequisites InstallShield
Wizard as described in "Installing Microsoft SQL Server Using the WSM
Prerequisites File."
