Release: IGEL Universal Management Suite 4.09.100

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

IGEL Universal Management Suite
Version 4.09.100
Release date: 20.04.2015

Windows Server 2003 is no longer supported by the IGEL UMS (Java 8 does not
support Server 2003).

The option to accept UMS server certificate temporary when connecting with
UMS console was removed due to incompatiblity with security enhancements.

The linux installer is tested with
– Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit) and Ubuntu 14.04 (32bit and 64bit)

For further compatibility information check the Universal Management Suite
Data Sheet at
UMS 4.09.100
New features

[UMS common]
– Updated java environment to Java 8 Update 40
– Added ability to disable the UMS server http connector. If disabled, secure connections are allowed only (https). Http connector can be disabled in UMS Administrator->Ports/Timeouts->’Allow SSL connections only’
– Added support for Oracle 12c database
[Console, common]
– Added link to user manual on (Menu Misc->User manual); User manual in pdf format is no longer included in UMS installations
– Added “configuration changed flag” after assigning/releasing a profile to/from thin clients/ thin client directories.
– Added new profile type: Master-profile
* master-profiles allow a priorised profile assignment which cannot be overwritten by standard-profiles (priority of master-profiles is always higher than priority of standard-profiles)
* master-profiles are organized in a separate root node in the navigation tree (for access control reasons)
* assignment priority of master-profiles is inverse to standard-profiles: profile closest to TC has lowest priorits, indirect assignments with largest distance have highest priority)
* Use master-profiles to force thin client settings which must not be overwritten by standard-profiles (e.g. session profiles or desktop configuration profiles managed by department administrators or helpdesk)
– Enhanced template profile health check: list empty template values in health check result
Added view export feature: send view result by mail (via SMTP).
Exports can be triggered manually via view context menu action or scheduled as administrative task.
Initial configuration of mail server, security settings and user credentials has to be defined in the UMS console administration tree ‘Global Configuration-> Email Settings’. Available parameters are:
* SMTP Host
* Reply Address
* SMTP User
* SMPT Password
* SMTP Port
* Available authentication methods: simple, SSL/TLS, Start TLS
[Universal Firmware Update]
– Added release notes in html format (available with the latest firmware versions only)

Resolved Issues
[UMS common]
– Fixed several security issues: the UMS server is now based on Tomcat 8.0.14. Please refer to for details
– Fixed: Directory rules with a product name criterion had no effect on reboot or register.
[Console, common]
– Fixed problem with Recycle Bin: objects would randomly reappear if you put them in the Recycle Bin, clear the Recycle Bin and refresh the tree (F5)
– Fixed minor issue in log level configuration (administration tree): log level labels are now translated
– Fixed some template key issues:
* assignment inconsistency after restoring template keys from the recycle bin
* renaming issue on template values
– Fixed issue with views containing the online criterion: they are now assignable to jobs
– Fixed: profiles with “overwrite” – flag are now effective again.
[Thin clients]
– Fixed “export Thin Clients” action for Thin Clients and Thin Client directories. Now this action is available in the context menu of content tables too.

[Shared Workplace Feature]

– Fixed: a view with “profile assigned” criterion now shows all thinclients with the chosen (direct and indirect) assigned profile.
– Fixed date picker issue: wrong week day abbreviations (e.g. in ‘Edit Job’ dialog) for german language replaced by proper ones
[Files (URLFiles)]
– Fixed file transfer via context menu ‘File UMS->TC’ on thin client directories
[Universal Firmware Update]
