    Sunray 2 help needed with MMR and usb redirection

    hiya people

    I have finally got round to looking at our 15 sunray 2's. I have set them up with the solaris backend and windows terminal services. I have installed the generic x kiosk session and have made a very nice logon gui.

    However (this is where i would like some help if poss)

    I have installed the windows connector tools onto the terminal server but when a flash video is played (either youtube or media player) the MMR icon does not appear in the task bar, and MMR does not seem to be working.
    Next point: Whilst installing the above the option for usb redirection is greyed out and usb redirection is not working(for pen drives).

    Have i set these programs up wrong or isthere any config to do on the kiosk side to enable it?

    Thanks for the reply, hope i get some

    Hi Nick,

    Which version of the Sun Ray software have you installed?

    uttsc (the windows connector) defaults the Flash & Multimedia Redirections to on but you can control this with arguments such as -M all/off or -F all/off. (Look at man uttsc)

    USB Redirection will be greyed out for Terminal Services because it isn't supported, it is however possible to present a memory stick via a redirected directory on the solaris side similar to how rdesktop on linux works to a TS.

    Finally, which version of Windows Server are you using as the MMR stuff only works on 2003 at the moment.

    More info on the installation of the MMR & extras if needed is available at How to Install the Sun Ray Connector Windows Components - Sun Ray Connector for Windows OS, 2.2 - wikis.sun.com

    Hope this helps,
    Kim

    hi kim, Thanks forthe reply.

    i have srss 4.2 srwc 2.2 and win 2003.

    Where would i need to put the arguments for the flash and mm redirections, i presume somewhere in the kiosk?

    how would i do the redirected dir thingy aswell.

    thanks for the reply

    Yeah, wherever you're calling uttsc from you can add -F all and -M all to force them on but they default this way anyway... worth looking in your logs to see why stuff isn't firing, could it be a SRP on your windows box?

    Have a look here for help on the usb side.

    what is SRP?

    i call uttsc from a logon gui script called menu.tcl.

    just out of interest how, for testing pupooses would i only enable/disable this for one or two rays.

    thanks again

    Software Restriction Policy that might be stopping it running on the windows end.

    It's up to you whether you enable it for all or some, there's a few ways to do that too but you need to be fairly comfortable with shell scripting to identify the Sun Ray and act accordingly.

    I'd start with getting it working first.

    hi

    I have now followed your advice and nearly got it working.

    I have tested it on some windows media player clips and the icon appears perfectly, however it does not apperr on youtube clips, is this correct or should it appear on youtube clips?

    thanks for your help.

    Hi there,

    Suspect the plugin could be disabled mate if you're not seeing the icon in the systray. (Have a look at your Manage your addons in IE).

    Worth also remembering to make sure your Audio Driver is set properly to the Sun Ray RDP one.

    the addon is enabled (not sure if this is important, it says (not Verified) next to its name)

    with the audio, just checked, it is set to sunray RDP audio, but the volume is down and mute is ticked. I untick mute and drag volume bar up, hit apply and it goes down and muted again. I thought group policy so i have removed all policy links from this server and gpupdate /force to be sure and still happening.

    Although there was never a policy like that anyway.
