Dell WMS – Application Upgrade

Release date: March 21th 2021

Welcome to my Dell Wyse Management Studio section. In this sub-section I will describe how upgraded the VMware Horizon application in my Wyse unit. Upgrading the application packages differs somewhat from upgrading BIOS and ThinOS which I have described in the previous sessions. The first thing I have to do is to download the correct application package from Dell.

From the Apps & Data tab, click “ThinOS 9.x” from the menu on the left and “Add Package file

I browse and select the VMware Horizon package file I downloaded before starting this session and accept the EULA

I will be using my “Managed Wyse Devices” group to upgrade the application in the devices in this group. I select “Edit Polices” and select the “ThinOS 9.x”-link

From the menu on the left, select Firmware – Application Package Updates. The package I imported is available and selected. Save & Publish.

Next, from the left menu, select the “Thin Client” App Policy – Add Policy

Provide a Policy Name, assig a group and select the OS Type and Application – Save and click Yes to confirm.

Click Yes to schedule a job to apply the new App Policy

This concludes the application upgrade of my Wyse Unit.
