This is relevant for IGEL WES version 3.12.xxx or lower. With IGEL WES version 3.13.100, the problem has been solved.
If you rename a thin client while it is registered in an AD (Active Directory) domain, the thin client will try rebooting over and over again. Short before the boot process is aborted, the message Reset domain status apears on the screen.
Solution - If the Thin Client Is in the Reboot Loop
You can reset the new terminal name temporarily during the bootup phase:
On one of the several reboots, the thin client will eventually receive the updated settings from the UMS and boot up normally.
The new terminal name is restored locally.
The new terminal is not visible in the Setup yet, but you can check it under Control Panel > System > Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings.
The name within the AD is not changed.
Preventing the Reboot Loop
The thin client logs out of the domain and reboots.
The thin client reboots.
The thin client logs in to the domain and reboots.
