describes how to manage a network containing a Cisco VXC Manager server and
Cisco VXC 6215 devices together with a Wyse Device Manager (WDM) server that
controls Wyse devices using DHCP tags. The assumption is that the Cisco VXC
Manager server is added to a network that already contains a WDM server.
No changes are
needed to the production WDM network configuration.
Do not modify the existing WDM system with legacy devices and WDM DHCP tags.
Set up the Cisco VXC Manager 5.0 server as normal.
Configure a DDC package for upgrade on the Cisco VXC Manager server.
Boot the Cisco VXC 6215 devices.
The devices check in to the WDM server as they boot up for the first time in the network due to the existing DHCP tags in the network.
Set Devices to Use Cisco VXC Manager
After the device boots up, access Cisco VXC Manager and right-click on the device and choose Execute Command.
Enter /etc/init.d/sshd start & to enable SSH.
Use an SSH client to connect to the device and enter su to acquire root privileges.
Enter the administrator password.
Execute the following commands:
regset --persist Rapport Servers “xx.xxx.xxx.xx” (IP address of Cisco VXC Manager 5.0)
regset --persist Rapport MgmtDiscoveryMethod STATIC
thinclient-config –set-preserve-changes yes (if the .RSP script does not have this command)
The device may reboot to allow checkins to the Cisco VXC Manager 5.0 server.
The moment a device checks in to Cisco VXC Manager, the scheduled DDC with the image upgrade is initiated. When the reimaged device reboots, it automatically continues to report to the same Cisco VXC Manager 5.0 server.
After you verify the devices check in to the Cisco VXC Manager 5.0, delete the device entries from the WDM server.
