Once you have Wyse Management Suite (WMS) installed the next step is to automatically have your devices ‘find’ and check-in into your WMS server. This is accomplished by setting up a few DNS records that include the key WMS server information. I’ve outlined the DNS records that need to be setup and steps to setup on Microsoft Server 2012.

In a previous post, here, I covered how to resolve the SSL error message, “SSL Certificate Authority is Unknown” when using ThinOS.
10. This completes the setup. Once your device boots up and does it’s DNS lookup it will populate the proper fields on the device, in this example, Wyse ThinOS:
Thin Clients and VDI offer several benefits but there is one issue that is seldom address: what is an origination to do with existing PCs if they wish to switch over to a VDI environment? Dell is answering this with its new Wyse Converter for PCs, which does exactly as the name implies: converting older PCs to thin client-devices. This allows organizations to capitalize on existing investments while still having a secure and powerful VDI environment. This new solution locks down the older PC’s OS and converts it into a secure thin client, which can be remotely managed via tight integration with Wyse Management Suite 1.1 (or later). This solution will work on PCs running Windows 7 or 10.
Once your certificates are imported into WMS, you then need to assign them to your ThinOS profile you are using under, “Groups & Configs” select the group you want to edit following steps below;
This completes the process of uploading your SSL certificates to WMS and assigning them to a ThinOS policy.
Adding a device in Wyse Management Suite is one of the first steps to managing the device with policies, rules, and jobs.
Dell continues to improve its Thin Clients to make the experience more PC-like and easier to use overall. The latest release continues this trend along with improving security and easing deployment. Deployment is eased through a new boot configuration wizard, especially helpful to first time users. And from a security standpoint, the OS supports an additional two-factor authentication solution across both Citrix and VMware brokering environments.
Wyse Management Suite is a scalable hybrid cloud solution ideal for safely and securely managing your Dell endpoints.

To make everything about Thin Clients easier, Dell is also introducing Wyse Easy Setup. As the name implies, this solution allows for admins to easily configure Windows-based thin clients to their organization’s specific IT policy. Admins will also be able to tailor end-user experience for the various needs.
Wyse Management Suite requires a device be added before the device can be managed by Wyse Management Suite. The steps to add a device differ depending on whether Wyse Thin OS (WTOS), Windows Embedded Standard (WES), or Teradici is in use. For more information, click the appropriate operating system.
