Menu path: Structure Tree > Thin Clients

In the Thin Clients area, you can manage end devices registered on the UMS server. All devices registered on the UMS server are shown.

The name of a thin client shown in the structure tree is used for identification in the UMS and does not need to be identical to the name of the thin client in the network. The name shown in the structure tree does not need to be unique and can be used a number of times.

The unit ID serves as a unique identifier. With IGEL thin clients, IGEL zero clients, devices with the IGEL UDC and devices with the IGEL UMA, the unit ID is assigned the MAC address of the device.

You can structure the Thin Clients area by creating directories and, possibly, sub-directories. When doing so, you should bear in mind that each thin client can only be shown once in the structure tree. You can move a thin client by dragging and dropping it from one directory to another.
