All I know is we created a local user account (called User) not in the administrators group and when that user logs in to kiosk mode (using autologon) the buttons along the bottom of the connection manager window have vanished. I don't remember doing anything special to set it up that way, it just happened. When logged in as Administrator, all the buttons are present and correct. I've just created a test user on a nearby terminal. When the username is flagged as an administrator, the connection manager options are there. When the administrator tickbox (connection manager>Advanced>Security>Users>username>modify>permissions) is unticked, the connection manager is locked down. -----Original Message----- From: Schneider, Chad M [mailto:CMSchneider@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: 20 April 2005 13:22 To: 'thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: [THIN] Re: HP Thin Clients (newer Models) How did you force the cut down connection manager for users and not for admins? This is where it becomes confusing so far. Seems if I set kiosk, everyone (including admin) gets kiosk, I hide connection center, it is gone for everyone. I want to run it locked down, but need some accessibility for the admins, of course. I have altiris, man, that is no picnic to install. I need to find a SQL server I can install it on. _____ From: thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:thin-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Angus Macdonald Sent: Wednesday, April 20, 2005 3:42 AM To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [THIN] Re: HP Thin Clients (newer Models) We're just starting to roll out a couple of hundred T5500s. We have them setup to autologin as a restricted user, with the option of pressing ESC to login as the local administrator during the 5 second autologin countdown. Standard users get the terminal in kiosk mode with only the cut-down connection manager and a single autostart ICA connection. Administrators get the full connection manager ,including options to reenable the desktop. Assuming you've deployed Altiris (the client licenses come with the terminals so it's a good move), you can reimage, remotely control (including logging users off and logging on as the administrator), reboot etc from your desktop. -----Original Message----- From: Schneider, Chad M [mailto:CMSchneider@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: 19 April 2005 21:08 To: 'thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: [THIN] HP Thin Clients (newer Models) Anyone have any knowledge of the configuration of the newer model HP thin clients?
