Solution: IGEL Linux V5 Desktop Experience Pack for IGEL Linux V4.x.x

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Hi Folks,

are you not happy because you can’t upgrade your old IGEL Linux based Thin Clients to the IGEL Linux V5? …your Users want the stylish new GUI or you have a mixed IGEL V4/V5 environment?

Then try this: http://www.cloud-client.info/cms/index.php/os-extensions/custom-partition-lx-os/v5deskexp-for-linux

Please Note: This is only a graphical theme for the IGEL Linux V4 (OS/LX) and will NOT add any new software features!

IGEL Linux V4.x.x with IGEL Linux V5 Desktop Experience Pack

Have Fun!

P.S.: This pack could be also a Blueprint to create your own company themes for the IGEL Linux V4.

Tip: UMS 4.05.200 and Active Directory User

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Hi Folks,

if you are using the Igel Universal Management Suite together with Active Directory based User accounts for the Thin Client Administration  you should skip the Update to Version 4.05.200. There seams to be in issue with the User rights handling and there should be a fixed Version available soon.

Small changes at blog.cloud-client.info

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Hello Folks,

maybe you have already noticed that i changed the header for this blog, i’ve now also replaced/modified the search feature a little bit. What is now the difference? It’s quite simple, it’s a google custom search and if you want to search for a special term it will look at all IGEL Technology resource sites incl. the IGEL Websites, Citrix, all cloud-client.info sites and more.

Why do i mention it? If you know or miss a good resource site that covers cloud-computing and also have valuable IGEL related content i will be happy to add it to this custom search (Valuable content does not mean “sale” something, it means providing know how for me! Ok.. 😉 )

Cheers

Michael

Release: Universal Desktop Converter 2.0 (5.01.110)

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Hello Folks,

the new Version of the Universal Desktop Converter is available for download, please note that you have to download the UDC2Stick_5.01.110.zip from the myigel.biz website. Also don’t forget that you must use new licenses if you want to deploy the UDC 2 Firmware to devices. See also my older post: http://blog.cloud-client.info/2013/10/02/information-upgrade-igel-linux-v4-to-igel-linux-v5/

 

After you downloaded the archive you can extract it and deploy the new IGEL Linux with the included .iso file or you can upgrade/create a USB Memory to install the new IGEL Linux.

But please: Old licenses will not work! Not all older devices are supported anymore! Read the release notes and test devices that you want to install with the UDC in advance to make sure that everything is working fine.

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: A new UDC Deployment Appliance Version 3.1 is also available now, this tool can be used to deploy the UDC in smaller environments via the network.

First experience with the new IGEL Linux V5 (upgrade)

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Hello Folks,

today i’ve upgraded my first bunch of UD3 and UD5 devices with the new IGEL Linux V5.

After i put the content coming with the upgrade pack on our IIS and also an USB memory i run the upgrade thru network and also from the USB Memory. It works quite well and i got no issues during the update and here are some of my first screenshots. I’ve updated several UD3 and UD5 single/dual core devices (see supported device list), so not only a “one” device test, also it’s important that you can NOT use the buddy update feature to perform the upgrade!

IGEL Linux V5: New Linux Desktop look

IGEL Linux V5: New Linux Desktop look

After the Upgrade you will directly boot into the new GUI which looks very stylish, the screen above was taken from a device which i’ve set back to factory defaults but i also got no issues with devices without a reset back to factory defaults.

IGEL Linux V5: New RemoteFX settings for Windows8/Server 2012 RDS

IGEL Linux V5: New RemoteFX settings for Windows8/Server 2012 RDS

For my test i first setup a RemoteFX session to a Windows 8 environment, in the screen above you see some of the new RDP settings for RemoteFX. Please be aware, if you’re using the UMS Version 4.04.110 or older you have to configure these new settings thru System->Registry in a Profile optimized for the IGEL Linux V5 (5.01.xxx).

IGEL Linux V5: New Session display Options

IGEL Linux V5: New Session display Options

Be also aware that sessions have now in general more display options (where should the session be shown for the user) and that you’ve also more Sessions available in the Accessories Tab in the IGEL Setup. I strongly recommend to configure and prepare this before rolling out the new Firmware, in general you can also use/upgrade your old Profiles for Linux V4 to Linux V5 without any issues. One add-on, please note the new Remote Desktop Web Access feature in the left Setup Menu… 🙂

 

IGEL Linux V5: Running a RemoteFX Session as window

IGEL Linux V5: Running a RemoteFX Session as window

Last but not least a small test with my RemoteFX session, in general the new Linux V5 looks very good and you should get a look on it.

IGEL Linux V5: Running DATI (ILISE) V1.06 Custom Partition Sample Conky

IGEL Linux V5: Running DATI (ILISE) V1.06 Custom Partition Sample Conky

The last thing i want to test are the cloud-client.info custom partition samples and the custom partition packages created with our Deployment Assistant Tool for IGEL Thin Clients (DATI/ILISE), i run several samples and never got an issue. This solution is still not supported by IGEL Technology but if you already use it, you don’t have to be afraid that the packages are not working anymore, this includes upgrading a device where these packages are already used.

 

So from my side i will strictly go with IGEL Linux V5 in the future and after i run some more test to check all features and functions, i will also release a new UMS Template and UMS Virtual Appliance after the new final Universal Management Suite Version is released.

I also added a couple of FAQ’s to the cloud-client.info FAQ Area, it’s still more to do but it should cover already some open questions.

 

 

Have Fun

Michael

Release: IGEL Linux V4 -> V5 Upgrade Firmware for UDx-x3x and UDx-x4x devices

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

IMPORTANT:

– USE THIS FIRMWARE ONLY FOR AN UPGRADE FROM IGEL LINUX 4.x TO IGEL LINUX 5.01.110!

– IGEL BUDDY UPDATE IS NOT SUPPORTED IN THIS UPGRADE PATH!

– ONLY THE DEVICES LISTED IN SECTION “SUPPORTED DEVICES” CAN BE UPGRADED!

This is a description of the upgrade process:

1. Initiate the update

2. The updates for version 4.12.320 are downloaded and installed

3. After an automatic reboot the update to IGEL Linux 5 is installed. No user interaction is required.

4. The next automatic reboot boots up the new IGEL Linux 5 system.

Downgrade path:

ONLY devices that have been initially shipped with IGEL Linux 4.x are capable to downgrade to IGEL Linux 4.x again.

1. Install the firmware 4.x again

2. A reset to factory defaults is recommended.

Comment: Please note, the mentioned Firmware 4.12.320 is coming with this update and is included in the archive!

From the 4.12.320 Release notes:

Supported devices: UD2-x30 LX,UD3-x31 LX,UD5-x30 LX,UD3-x40 LX,UD5-x40 LX,
UD9-73x LX

Comment: The Upgrade Firmware to IGEL V5 comes with the Firmware Version 5.01.110 but the release note is similar to the 5.01.100 LX Firmware without a fixed password check. Iam not sure if the 5.01.100 will be also replaced but currently this is how it looks like. Have fun for your test’s!

Cheers
Michael

Information: Upgrade IGEL Linux V4 to IGEL Linux V5 (Update)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Hello Folks,

as you see IGEL has released the IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 (based on IGEL Linux V5) and the IGEL Linux V5.

What is important to know regarding the Upgrade?

 

IGEL Universal Desktop OS -> IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 = Not supported

The hardware requirements have significantly changed (increased) and also some older hardware platform’s are not supported anymore with the V5. If you want to upgrade you need a seperate license / installer media and you MUST test it (OS V2) in advance!

Update: IGEL will release a update Firmware to upgrade from IGEL Universal Desktop OS to the new Linux V5 based Universal Desktop OS but you still require a new license (!). This update will be only available on request regarding the fact that the upgrade can make an installation unusable if no “new” licenses are in place and to prevent a not wanted upgrade.

 

IGEL Universal Desktop LX -> IGEL Linux V5 = Supported for new IGEL Dual Core devices, older devices with a single core CPU are not supported for an Upgrade. Update: The last Generation of single core devices is also supported, like UD3-730 for the Upgrade.

What is important here, a direct firmware update will not work! I’ve already test this so you can not mess up you existing installation in any way and the firmware files can be located in the same folder like the IGEL Linux V4 firmwares on your webserver, currently iam waiting for the “step between” to upgrade my dual core device’s but it’s not yet released(!).

Update: Upgrade pack is available for download here http://www.myigel.biz/index.php?dir=IGEL_UNIVERSAL_DESKTOP_FIRMWARE/LX/UPGRADE_FW_V4_TO_V5/

 

Will i still receive updates for my IGEL Linux V4 devices = Yes, nothing changed here at the moment.

 

What  happens to Windows (W7)= Nothing, only a change for the Product Name after the update.
If i perform a upgrade from Linux V4 to V5, do i need to update my profiles in the UMS= If you want to configure new settings of course but you should not be forced to change existing configurations because the most settings should be similar. In any way the known basic rule: Test in advance!

 

Should i test the new IGEL Linux V5 before rolling out the firmware or Universal Desktop OS V2 to a bunch of devices= Yes, it’s a complete new product and it don’t have to work like the old one! …otherwise you would not deploy it, right?

 

What happens to my current order or if i don’t want the new IGEL Linux V5 in my IGEL Linux V4 environment= Check with the IGEL Sales Rep/Service, IGEL started shipping the new firmware and if you don’t want to deploy the IGEL Linux V5 you should check in advance what type of Linux or UDC incl. license will be shipped to you to prevent a bad supprise.

 

Update: Can i downgrade from IGEL Linux V5 to IGEL Linux V4: Yes and No; devices delivered with IGEL Linux V5 can not be downgraded, a device that was original delivered with Linux V4 and got a upgrade from V4 to V5 can be downgraded via a seperate Firmware package.

 

Please Note: Iam not responsible for the upgrade path’s or how the upgrade is handled, there might be changes in the future but this is based on the information’s i received until today from IGEL. If there are major updates i will blog it here like in the past. If you have seperate questions contact the IGEL Support Team, iam sure they will help you if possible.

 

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: Regarding the new trial/test licenses (OS V2) or trial/test devices contact your Partner or IGEL Sales Rep.

Release: IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 Version 5.01.100 (Update)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2
============================
Version 5.01.100
Oct 01 2013

======================
Notes:
======================
IMPORTANT:
Dual monitor configuration for “unsupported hardware” works only if “native
driver support” works properly. It is a prerequisite to assure that the
native driver is really working, as the fallback VESA driver does not provide
any dual monitor configuration. Have a look at Application Launcher’s
About tab->Hardware-Graphics Chipset. If VESA is listed there the native
driver does not work and dual monitor configuration is not functional.
