Technical preview of Mobile Device Management Essentials (MDM) for UMS
It is now possible to manage iOS mobile devices with the UMS. This feature is currently in a technical preview phase; the number of devices that can be managed simultaneously is limited to 5 devices. For more information, see the MDM Manual.
The following three wizards were added:
- ICG Remote Installer, see Using the ICG Remote Installer.
- ICG Update Wizard, see Using the ICG Update Wizard.
- ICG Keystore Update Wizard, see Certificate Management
Parameter Reset Button
Each parameter now has a new reset button which resets the value to factory defaults. The button is disabled when the parameter already has its default value. See the explanation in New Profile - Configuration.
Status Information about Assigned Files
The thin client panel now contains a section File Transfer Status which provides status information regarding the progress of a file transfer or firmware transfer from the UMS to a thin client.
The UMS can provide multiple certificates, so that alternative certificates can be used for thin clients which do not support the default certificate. For more information, see Certificate Management.
The UMS Console now shows a notification pop-up on each startup (default behavior) which informs about the latest firmware updates and expiration of UMS or client licenses.
Notifications can be deactivated (for all users) in UMS Administration > Global Configuration > Misc Settings, and the relevant notification types can be set in
UMS Console > Misc > Settings > Notifications (user specific). See also the Tips & Tricks article: Always Be Informed About Firmware Updates and Licenses.
Static Template Keys
Static template keys receive their value directly from the thin client. For more information, see Using Template Keys in Profiles.
Boot Mode Added to Thin Client Overview
The boot mode is shown in the thin client's system information section; see Thin Client.
Number of Thin Client Request Settings
The thread configuration for concurrent thin client request has been made more user-friendly. For more information, see Thin Client Network Settings.
Automatic Wake On LAN Proxy Detection
The UMS can now automatically look for a thin client that can be used as a Wake-On-LAN proxy. The target thin client must have firmware LX 5.09.100 and must be on the same subnet. For more information, see Wake-on-LAN.
Configuration of Cipher Suites (SSL) that Can be Used by the UMS
It is now possible to configure the cipher suites that can be used by the UMS. This setting is server-specific and excluded from database backup.
Color Highlighting of Registry Keys Set via Profile
Now keys in the Registry that have been set via a profile are highligted with a color. The same colors as for highlighting paths in the navigation tree in the UMS are used.
