Anyone used the HP Device Manager before ? (v4.7)

 

Trying to administer some HP thin clients remotely that require dual screen RDP setup and been told I can do this via the Device Manager as a task that pushes out the setting.....  yet I cant find anything along those lines :D Suspect I need to build my own task but cant see how to do that either.....  and no, I havent RTFM yet ;)  Yes, I could RDP to the devices directly and set it up, but theyre in use and we want to be able to use the tool and devices to their full potential, so its a good exercise as well :)

 

TIA

I've not touched it for many years, but looking at our HPDM we have configured a terminal manually and then clone the settings from that which then gets pushed out by a task.

We use that version.

 

 

 

How are you wanting to kick the RDP session off?  We usually set one up as we like it and then take an image of it, then setup a task that deploys the image, and then some other required settings

We have them setup in Kiosk mode and only icon is the RDP one - unfortunately when the latest image was built, somebody forgot to enable the multi-monitor option, now its my job to enable it on some systems that went out :)

 

I am thinking about doing it the way youve mentioned, but be nice to know how to do it "properly" :)

You could push out a new version of the RDP file with the option corrected, using a file and registry task.

 

Optionally set this up to run as a first contact rule so you ensure any new devices get it

Yeah thats what I'm trying but for some reason the devices arent replying to the request.  Im wondering if firewall blocking it somewhere.  Still poking at it.

 

 

 

Thanks

Has hpdm been working in the past, or is this a new installation?  Are the devices showing as active in hpdm?

 

 

 

Depending on how you have setup the RDP session, you can update the file using a "_File and Registry" job, add a deploy file to that job and select the new RDP file and put in the path you want it copied to

As these are Windows clients you're probably better off doing this via GPO/ConfigMgr (if you have it). My experience with HPDM is that to get any sort of granularity of settings you need to be using HP ThinOS (if all these do are RDP you could be saving on licensing by using this instead)
