1.3.6

AUDIENCE

Customers, 1st Level Support, and Systems Engineering Group

AFFECTED PRODUCTS

Wyse Simple Imager V1.3.6

REQUIREMENTS/ISSUES

Execution of this application requires

•        A Windows 2000 server SP4 or Windows 2003 SP1 server (If you wish to use
         Windows XP Pro SP2, see important notes below), IN AN ISOLATED NETWORK.
•        IT CANNOT BE INSTALLED ON THE SAME SERVER WITH WYSE DEVICE
         MANAGER.
                 • The WSI server and Thin Client MUST BE CONNECTED
                    TO EACH OTHER BEFORE INSTALLING THE
                     SOFTWARE. Failure to connect the devices before
                     installation will result in a loopback network condition and a
                   subsequent inability to re-image your thin clients.
•        DHCP, IIS with FTP Services installed and running
•        Single network adapter supported. If you have two adapters, you must disable one
•        All software firewalls and Antivirus services stopped
•        A simple hub, unmanaged (inexpensive) switch or a crossover cable
•        Wyse Simple Imager software V1.3.6
•        An image file for the device requiring the image
                         IMPORTANT for Windows XP Pro SP2 Users:

    1.      You will need to provide a working DHCP server. Windows XP Pro does not
            include one.
    2.      When installing and using WSI, ensure to run it on an isolated network.
    3.      See Page 7 for installation instructions on Windows XP Pro.

NOTE: If a previous version of WSI exists, you must remove it before installing this
version.

     PROCEDURE/SOLUTION

     WYSE SIMPLE IMAGER INSTALLATION ON A WINDOWS 2003 SERVER

1.       Verify that IIS, FTP services are installed and running. (Refer to Microsoft
         documentation for details)
2.       Setup FTP. Browse to “Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Internet
         Information Services (IIS) Manager” and launch the applet.
        From the IIS Manager screen (Figure 1), select the “Default FTP Site” on the right
     pane, then “Right Click” and select “Properties”.
        NOTE: If you cannot find this option, verify that FTP services are installed.




                              Figure 1 - Windows 2003 Server IIS Manager - FTP Site Select


3.       Select the “Home Directory” Tab (Figure 2). Verify that the “Read, Write, Log visits”
         privileges are set, and the MS-DOS® option is selected.

           Wyse Customer Support
4.       Verify DHCP. Before installing WSI, make sure that DHCP is running. You can do
         this by connecting a device to the server’s hub, unmanaged switch or crossover
         cable and verify that you get an IP address. If this is not the case, correct the
         problem first. IF DHCP IS NOT RUNNING, DO NOT INSTALL WSI.
5.       Install Wyse Simple Imager.
             Double-click on the WSISetup.exe file and follow the installation prompts. Use the
             “default” installation parameters. Verify that the installation path is the same as
             the Default path of the IIS FTP root path (see Figure 2).




                                      Figure 3 - FTPRoot Install Path

6.       After WSI Setup is complete, a Wyse Simple Imager shortcut will be created on the
         desktop from which the application can be run.

WSI INSTALLATION ON A WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL MACHINE

Follow these three steps:

    1. CONNECT:
           Connect your Windows XP Professional machine and the device(s)
           you need to re-image via a simple hub, unmanaged switch or a
           crossover cable. Verify that the Thin Client has power, a monitor,
           keyboard and mouse attached, but it’s NOT powered-on. During the WSI
           installation, a Proxy server is installed. If the devices are not connected, a
           loopback network connection is created and you will not be able to image
           your devices.
           Note: Disable all software firewalls and antivirus.

    2. INSTALL:
            Install the required software components IIS, FTP, DHCP and WSI.
            Note: For this example we are using DHCP turbo. This program is not
            supplied nor supported by Wyse.

    3. CONFIGURE:
            Configure TCP/IP properties, TFTPD, DHCP turbo and FTP in that order.

                  TCP/IP properties (See Figure 6)
                  Set the TCP/IP properties for the alternate configuration as follows:

                         IP address:            10.1.1.12

WYSE SIMPLE IMAGER USAGE

  1.     Connect the client (to be imaged) to the Wyse Simple Imager machine, through a
         hub, unmanaged switch or cross-over cable.
  2.     Launch Wyse Simple Imager
  3.     Select the appropriate Product you wish to image from the Product list.
  4.     Click on the “Add” button Figure 5




         Figure 10 - Select Product and Firmware       Figure 11 - Completed WSI Add Image page



Note: A recent change in manufacturing to make our devices ROHS compliant, required us to
use different hardware components and make changes to the software to accommodate and
recognize these components. To address this issue and to prevent any damage to the hardware
with Wyse Simple Imager, new "Product Numbers" where added.

To avoid an “Incompatible Firmware” message or an “Imaging and re-booting” loop,
check the part number of your thin client, and use the following table to cross reference
your thin client model to the equivalent model to select under WSI 1.3.6 when "Adding"
or “Submitting” the new firmware into WSI. This is only for the Sx0 and Vx0 series.

                         IMPORTANT: For the V30L / V30LE use V32, for the V50L /
                         V50LE use V52, and for the V90L / V90LE use V92.
       Image Version     Refers to the Firmware version and could be a numerical value
                         such as 559. This value is normally part of the filename you
                         downloaded from Wyse.
       Flash Size        This parameter is from the amount of Flash memory installed in
                         your device. You can use this parameter to separate image files if
                         your environment includes multiple versions of the same device
                         and you need specific image files for the amount of flash memory
                         on the devices. Sizes can be 16M, 32M, 192M, 256M, 512M, etc.
       Description       For your information. This information will help you identify the
                         characteristics of the device this image is for. (See figure 6 for an
                         example).
                         Important: Use only “Alpha Numeric” (A through Z, 0 through

TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem 1:         The thin client gives an “ARP Timeout” error when attempting to image it.
Solution 1:        This means that the thin client was unable to get an IP address from your
                   DHCP server ARP=Address Resolution Protocol). This indicates a problem
                   with your DHCP Server. If you have DHCP Turbo installed, de-install it, re-
                   install DHCP Turbo and configure it using parameters on page 8.
Problem 2:         Getting “Incompatible Firmware” messages.
Solution 2:        Review notes on page 10 of this document.
Problem 3:         The image was sent to the thin client but the device boots normally.
Solution 3:        1. Verify the boot order. Power on the thin client, press and hold the “DEL”
                      key to enter the BIOS setup. When prompted, enter the password
                      “Fireport” (case sensitive). The first boot device should be set to “PXE” or
                      “LAN”. If that is not the case, make the necessary changes.
                   2. Verify that the FTP Server has “Write” permission enabled (page 9)
                   3. Verify on the WSI server, the TFTPD screen. If you see an IP address of
                      127.0.0.1 anywhere, you have a loopback network condition. To recover
                      from this, “De-Install WSI ONLY”, make sure you connect the WSI server
                      and the thin client (with power applied to it, but NOT powered-on), and
                      then re-install WSI. Refer to page 7 for more details.
                   4. Verify the directory structure is set to:
                          c:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport
                          c:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport\tools
                          c:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport\tools\sa
                   5. Check for spaces in the firmware filename under
                      C:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport\<product>. FTP does not recognize spaces.
Problem 4:         A DHCP server is not installed on my XP machine. Where can I get one?
Solution 4:        You can download a DHCP server (i.e. DHCP Turbo) from www.tucows.com.
                   NOTE: This information is provided for your convenience and Wyse does not
                   endorse or supports any of these programs.
Problem 5:         Getting “Illegal TFTP operation” error messages on the thin client.
Solution 5:        Try re-imaging a different Thin Client. If the issue is resolved, you have a
                   hardware problem and will need to send the defective Thin Client to our
                   service department (1-800-800-9973 option 2 or
                   www.wyse.com/serviceandsupport/service/service.asp ) for repair.
Problem 6:         When attempting to image I get a message “Boot file not found”
Solution 6:        Verify that the “Scope” is set on DHCP Turbo as per the instructions on page
                   8. Also, if you have a VPN client installed on the WSI server, remove it and
                   try again.

Problem 7:         Getting “File not found” error messages
Solution 7:        Verify that your default FTP server address is set correctly using the IIS
                   Administration utility
Problem 8:         Not getting an IP Address
Solution 8:        Verify that the “Database” section of DHCP Turbo does not exceed five (5) IP
                   Addresses. Otherwise just clear the displayed addresses and try again to
                   connect.
Problem 9:         Getting the following Error: “Failure: Firmware is not compatible”
Solution 9:        Open the most recent log file in the
                   C:\INETPUB\FTPROOT\RAPPORT\TOOLS\SA\LOGS directory. Look for an
                   error message similar to
                   Evaluating: Unable to Open Source
                   (archive/ftp//anonymous:xxxx@10.1.1.12/Rapport/Wyse5S50\5150_128_WyseS505150/
                   5S50.i2d)

                   Verify the path of the file. In the case of the path for the example above, it
                   should be
                           C:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport\Wyse5S50\5150_128_WyseS505150

                   What you may find is that the path is actually:

                    C:\Inetpub\ftproot\Rapport\Wyse5S50\5150_128_WyseS505150,NewVersion

                   Note that an invalid character such as a “,” (comma) will cause the WSI to
                   truncate from that point on, giving you the above message.

             Solution: Rename the path so that you remove the invalid character. You
             can substitute the “,” (comma) for an underscore.
Problem 10: After re-imaging, the Thin Client reboots and starts the process again, and
             becomes and endless loop.
Solution 10: Verify that the correct model was selected for the “Product” field when the
             “.i2d” file was added. See table on page 10 and compare the part number
             with the appropriate model.
                   To verify this problem open the most recent log file in the
                   C:\INETPUB\FTPROOT\RAPPORT\TOOLS\SA\LOGS directory. Look for an
                   error message similar to:
                   Evaluating:
                   'ftp//anonymous:xxxx@10.1.1.12/Rapport/Tools/sa/9V90/push.k' to 'stream/sec/test'
                   Unable to Open Source
                   (ftp//anonymous:xxxx@10.1.1.12/Rapport/Tools/sa/9V90/push.k)
                   If you have a V90LE, the directory it’s looking for should be “9V92”.
                   Solution: Re-import the “.i2d” file using V92 as the product”.

Problem 11: Getting an error “PXE-E78” on the thin client and cannot re-image.
Solution 11: PXE-E78 means "Unable to locate boot server". The most common cause of
             this is when the WSI server is installed by itself with no other devices
             connected to the network; you get a "loopback" ip address created for the
             proxy server in WSI.
                   “De-Install WSI ONLY”, make sure you connect the WSI server and the thin
                   client (with power applied to it, but NOT powered-on), and then re-install WSI.
                   Refer to page 7 for more details.
Problem 13: When re-imaging a device, the thin client reboots as normal.
Solution 13: To correct this problem, go to the WSI main screen (See figure 10), click on
             the “Delete Logs” button, and try re-imaging.
             When a device is imaged, two log files are created. These files will have the
             extensions of “.log” and either “.fin” or “.end”
             “.fin” indicates a “Successful” imaging of the device
             .end” indicates a “Failure” to image a device
             “.log” contains the “Transaction” information of the imaging process.
             These files are located in the following directory:

                   C:\inetpub\ftproot\rapport\tools\sa\logs

                   You can also manually delete these files and try again.

Problem 14: I have a Viance Desktop device, what model should I pick?
Solution 14: For a Viance Appliance, select model V72.
Problem 15: I have one of the new R series devices, what model should I select?
Solution 15: If you have a Linux device (R50L) use the WSI model R60
             If you have an XPe device (R90L or R90LE) use the WSI model R90
Problem 16: I have one of the larger laptops devices, what model should I select?
Solution 16: If you have a Linux device (X50L) use the WSI model X62
             If you have an XPe device (X90L or X90Le) use the WSI model X90
Problem 17: I followed the instructions and I still can’t image the thin client.
Solution 17: De-Install WSI, De-Install DHCP Turbo. Read this document over and install
             according to the instructions.
                   Remember: When all else fails, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
