Registering thin clients automatically

You can configure the UMS server so that all thin clients in the server network are automatically registered during booting. In order to do this, the thin clients must be provided with the address of the UMS server via DHCP or DNS.

We recommend automatic registration when registering new clients for the first time during the rollout. Disable automatic registration as soon as all thin clients have been registered.

To configure the UMS server and thin clients for automatic registration, proceed as follows:

  1. Under UMS Administration > Global Configuration > Thin Client Network Settings, select the Enable automatic registration (without MAC address import) checkbox.

    If this option is enabled, each thin client without a certificate in the network will be added to the UMS database. If you reset a client to the factory settings and reboot it, it will immediately be registered on the server again.

  2. Set a DNS entry igelrmserver (Record Type A) or a DHCP option (224). Set the DHCP option 224 as a string - not as DWORD - to the IP address of the server by adding the following to the dhcpd.conf file in the appropriate section, e.g. in the global area:

    option igelrmserver code 224 = text
    option igelrmserver "<IP of the UMS server>"

  3. You should also set the igelrmserver DNS entry to the IP address of the UMS server.
