USB drive support
Setup - 3 x 2008 Std server in a TS farm. 100 Samsung 711NT thin clients running Windows CE
We have the above setup here, which works well, apart from the fact that the clients do not support USB drives - I did ask for the clients to support this when ordering, but there was a mix up/misunderstanding during the order. Our supplier is trying to get a resolution but hasn't come up with one yet. We have tried Fabulatech USB for remote desktop which works, but unfortunately takes the USB flash drive attached to the client and makes it appear as if it's plugged into the server i.e. everyone on the TS server can see it which is obviously not a good idea!
Has anyone any experience of getting USB flash drive support in CE? We can't afford to upgrade to XPe, and as we've had these for a while now I don't see us being able to send them back.
Thanks in advance for any help!!!
I don't know about support in CE. But I do know that those machines will work using Thinstation - which does support USB (this is how we operate them here).
Do you boot locally or from tftp? And do you have an idiots guide on how to do it!? Linux is not something I'm very au fait with, I've seen live CDs, etc, but with no floppy or CD drive it's not easy to play with!
I use tftp. I generate my images via TS-O-Matic (:: ThinStation - a light, full-featured thin client OS ::)
I'll try and sit down and write out how I do it here, as it took me a while to set it all up.
That looks a mighty useful website - Thanks! I'll take a look and have a play on Monday :)
