Enable automatic registration (without mac address import): This option is provided for the following scenario: The MAC addresses were already imported before the thin clients were added to the UMS database. As a result, preparations such as creating profiles can be made before the thin clients are delivered.

Enable naming convention
The UMS-internal names of the thin clients will be formed from the prefix and a consecutive number.
The names of the thin clients will not be allocated in accordance with the naming convention (default).
Prefix: Prefix for automatically allocating names. In the neighboring field, the current naming convention comprising a prefix, a dash "
-" and a consecutive number with the number of digits specified under Min. digits will be shown.
Minimum. digits: Minimum number of digits for the consecutive number. The digits not allocated will be filled with zeros. Examples: If 2 is selected, the consecutive number of the first thin client will be 01, if 3 is selected, the consecutive number will be 001 and so on.
Apply to all thin clients: If you click on this button, all thin clients registered in the UMS will be renamed in accordance with the naming convention.
Reset counter and renumber
When all thin clients are renamed (as a result of clicking on Apply to all thin clients), this will result in continuous, end-to-end numbering. All names will be reallocated, even for thin clients that were already renamed in accordance with the naming convention. If numbers have become free because thin clients were taken out of service, these numbers will be used for other thin clients.
If all thin clients are renamed in accordance with the naming convention, numbers previously allocated will be retained. Only thin clients that do not yet conform to the naming convention will be renamed.
