Dell WMS – Device Groups

Release date: March 12th 2021

Welcome to my Dell Wyse Management Studio section. In this sub-section I will describe how I created a device group for my Managed Wyse devices. Grouping the devices is an imperative job when working with Wyse management. I will create a standard group which will provide the Wyse devices with settings for Time, Privileges, Certificate, VMware Horizon Settings etc. To do this i first open the Groups & Config tab

I click the plus icon to create a group

I enter a Group Name, Description and create a Group Token

From the «Edit Policies» drop-down menu, I select ThinOS 9.x, as I will only be using one device with ThinOS 9.x installed.

Under Region and Language, I provide the configuration of Time Zone and Time Server

Under the Privacy and Security menu, I will set the Privilege Level to None for my Wyse Units and I select to “Auto Install” my Domain CA Root Certificate

As I am setting this up to use my VMware Horizon solution, I select VMware Horizon as the default “Broker Type” and I provide the “Broker Server URL

From the Global Session Settings menu, I adjust the settings for “Local Resources and USB Redirection

I complete the settings by disabling Wireless, as I wont be using this on my Wyse device.

This concludes the configuration of my Managed Devices device group. The next logical step for me is to use my group to update BIOS, firmware, OS etc. which I have documented here: Dell WMS – Device Operations
