Hello folks,

EMail: mhoting@cloud-client.info

This is a non commercial release without any official support by IGEL Technology or cloud-client.info.

Use on your own risk, the publisher is not responsible for any damage or issue related to the use
of this free release.

Requirements for the VM:
2 GB RAM
12 GB HDD

Getting started:
Copy the folder cloud-client.info IGEL UMS Appliance 1.0 to your Hyper-V VM folder.
Import the VM via the Hyper-V console and set the Network Card to the Network you want to connect to.
Start the VM, by default the VM will pick up a DHCP address. If you want to use a static IP you can
configure this in the DHCP Server by assigning a IP to the VM’s MAC-ID (see below).
After the vm is startet open the VM console and login to the System with the username igel (credentials
see below. Now you can assign also a static IP (Network setup is on the right in the top menu).
On the desktop you can see two links to open the UMS console or administrator tool.

Note: I’ve setup default directory rules, new clients will directly moved to the device folder. You can
motify this of course depending on your needs.
