[THIN] Re: HP T5000 series XPe Winterm. Am I missing something?

In order to make permananent changes to an XPe device you need to make sure
that the Write Filter is turned off first.
Write Filter is a nice benefit to XPe compared to XP Pro.

I'm going through the same pain right now. My T5710 does show up
automatically. As far as righting to the hard drive I think you have to
enable write access. I'll know more once I get mine working...

I still can't figure out how to logon as Administrator. I keep getting a
locked down user desktop. If I logout it automatically logs me back in as a
user.

How hard are these things supposed to be to understand? I've bought one for
evaluation purposes, registered and downloaded the relevant Altiris package,
setup a virtual server for Altiris and installed it. The terminal starts up
into XPe just fine and I can connect to my Citrix farms, read attached USB
drives etc etc. However, any configuration changes I make are lost at next
startup and it's as if the terminal is fresh out of the box.

I've setup a computer account in Altiris for the terminal, thinking that
perhaps any permanent configuration has to be done that way but Altiris
never sees the terminal. It knows the MAC address and all the other relevant
details but it's as if the terminal isn't switched on. Surely Altiris has
the ability to scan for client machines - manually entering all those
details gets old real fast.

So, what's the magic ingredient I'm missing? Have I simply bought a broken
terminal?
