In this step, we will update the devices to the IGEL WES 7/7+ version that is capable of converting the device to IGEL OS 11.

For IGEL WES 7 devices, you use UniversalDesktopWES-3.13.150.snp; for IGEL WES 7+ devices, you use UniversalDesktopWES7+-3.14.110.snp as the snapshot file. If you have both device types, perform the steps described below for each device type separately.

After the update, you can update to another firmware only via IGEL rescue shell!

Transferring the Snapshot File to the UMS

The snapshot file must be placed in the file system of the UMS Server.

  1. Get access to the file system of the machine on which your UMS Server is running.
  2. Unzip the snapshot file to <UMS Installation directory>\rmguiserver\webapps\ums_filetransfer

Creating an Update Profile

  1. In the UMS structure tree, go to Profiles, open the context menu, and select New Profile.
  2. Enter the following data:
    • Profile Name: Name for the profile, e. g. "Update for Converting".
    • Description: Optional description for the profile.
