A wizard helps you during the installation procedure. You can connect external database systems as an alternative to the integrated database.
Straightforward management at the click of a mouse:
Most hardware and software settings can be changed with just a few clicks.
Standardized user interface:
The UMS user interface is similar to that for local thin client configuration. The additional remote management functions give the administrator complete control in the familiar, proven environment.
Although scripting is supported, you will only need it for managing the thin client configuration in the most exceptional circumstances.
Automatic capturing of all your hardware information, licensed features and installed hotfixes.
For various customer-specific information such as location, installation date and inventory number.
Support for numerous operating systems:
The UMS server can run on many common versions of Microsoft® Windows® Server and Linux, see Installation Requirements.
Access independent of the operating system:
The UMS console runs on any device with the Java Runtime Environment. You can also use the UMS console with Java Web Start without a local installation, see Installation Requirements.
Certificate-based TLS/SSL-encrypted communication between remote management servers and clients to prevent unauthorized reconfiguration of the devices.
Failsafe update function:
If a thin client fails while the update is in progress, e. g. as a result of a power outage or loss of the network connection, it will still remain usable. The update process will then be completed when the device next boots.
Based on standard communication protocols:
There is no need to reconfigure routers and firewalls because the UMS uses the standard HTTP and FTP protocols.
Support for extensive environments:
The IGEL Universal Management Suite can be scaled to accommodate several thousand thin clients.
Group and profile-based administration:
The thin clients within a given organizational unit can be administered easily via profiles. If members of staff move to another department, the administrator can change the settings with a simple drag-and-drop procedure.
IGEL thin clients can be automatically assigned to a group on the basis of either the relevant subnet or a list of MAC addresses provided by IGEL. They then automatically receive the configuration settings for the group.
Comprehensive support for all configuration parameters:
Most IGEL thin client settings, e. g. device or session configurations, can be changed via the UMS user interface.
Transferral of administrative rights:
Large organizations can authorize a number of system administrators for different control and authorization areas. These administrative accounts can be imported from an Active Directory.
Maintenance tasks can be scheduled to take place during the night so that day-to-day operations are not disrupted.
Members of the IT support team have remote access to thin client screens, enabling them to rapidly identify problems and demonstrate solutions directly to users.
