Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

IGEL Universal Management Suite
Version 4.07.110
Release date: 11.07.2014

If the windows installer does not start on Windows Server 2003 hosts,
contace IGEL support to get an UNSIGNED setup executable. This will solve
the issue.

The stand alone VNCViewer application has been removed in version 4.05.220.
Use UMS Console with appropriate user permissions to replace it.

The linux installer is tested with
– Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit)
– RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 (32bit)

For further compatibility information check the Universal Management Suite
Data Sheet at
UMS 4.07.110 (stable build based on version 4.07.100)
Fixed bugs
– Fixed problem creating thin client directories (occurs in combination with
default directory rules only)
– Fixed firmware update assignment issue: assignments did not take effect
if they were assigned to thin client subdirectories
– Fixed file assignment issue: assignments did not take effect
if they were assigned to thin client subdirectories
– Fixed profile assignment issue: assigned object list showed all profiles,
even if there were only some assigned;
NOTE: this was an UI issue only, it did NOT affect the thin client settings
– Fixed null pointer exception if a firmware update is deleted
– Fixed firmware update deployment issue: firmware update registration
(from zip file) fails if UMS console runs on a windows system and the
UMS server runs on linux

IGEL offers W7+ devices

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Hello Folks,

IGEL brings up a a new  device/firmware type called Universal Desktop W7+, the Universal Desktop W7+ is similar to the regular W7 but it comes with an 8GB SSD and not like the regular W7 devices with a 4GB SSD.

Main benefit for the W7+ is the fact that you have much more space available to install applications or drivers to the device, for example to install the Lync 2013 VDI Plug-In from Microsoft.

Import: If you are running a mixed environment (W7 and W7+) you have to handle two seperate firmware’s. The Images are not compatible.

W7+ is available for the current UD3, UD5, UD9 and UD10.
