Pre Installation checks
In order to complete this install you will need the following items - please check the status of the following before beginning:
Wyse P25 or Dell D90 thin client with nGen asset tag White (P25) or Black (D90) DVI adapter Clover Mains Power Adapter Power Supply Unit USB Keyboard with nGen asset tag USB mouse 3m Network Cable KVM switcher + 2 x VGA cables + 2 x USB cables 2 port USB switcher + 2 x USB cables
The thin client will use a second network cable in addition to the existing one feeding the Windows XP BOS PC. You will need to plug the supplied network cable into the network switch to provide a network connection
There may be cases where the site has a spare TFT to create a second area for VDI but in most cases you will need to spilt the keyboard, mouse and TFT screen between both the VDI and the XP computer using a KVM to switch between. It will need to be close in order for the VDI thin client to reach the USB printer cables.
Is there enough power (UPS or mains supply) available to plug the thin client in?
You will be fitting a USB printer switch box between the BOS PC and the printer - make sure the cables are run sensibly and do not obstruct the computer
Install KVM (if required)
Unbox the KVM and fit the TFT screen from the BOS PC to the KVM
The KVM needs a USB keyboard and mouse.
If the BOS machine has a PS2 keyboard this will need to be swapped out as the KVM will serve as the keyboard and mouse for both the PC and the thin client
Fit the supplied USB keyboard and USB mouse to the KVM
Install USB Printer Switcher
Install USB printer switcher as shown above
Installation of new VDI
Record the MAC address from the side pull out tab of the thin client
Install the KVM USB cable into the rear USB ports / USB Keyboard and Mouse into the rear ports if not using a KVM
Install speakers (if present) into the headphone socket on the front
Has the USB printer cable been plugged into one of the front USB ports?
has the VGA cable been plugged into the thin client using the correct adaptor?
Has the USB keyboard and mouse been installed into the rear USB's of the thin client?
Record the power supply MAR asset tag
Has the network cable been plugged into the thin client?
What port is the thin client plugged into?
Is the power lead plugged into the thin client so it can be moved if needed without pulling the cable out?

Record the MARxxxxxx Asset tag number on the side of the thin client
Testing of Thin Client
Open 'VDI Help' shortcut from the Desktop of a session logged into VDI - click on the link for Non Managed Welcome Pack for sites recently enabled for VDI - print this document and give it to the Manager
Open Paint.exe – put a print onto the scanner of the printer and scan a full page image
Check that users data files have appeared in the profile and the profile is not an empty profile e.g. Desktop and Documents folders have items in them
Switch the USB connection back to the BOS PC and make sure the machine can communicate with the printer i.e. send a test print containing both colour and black text
