Check to make sure that there is only one job scheduled in Altiris for the 
client.  If a job fails and you start another one the previous job remains 
under the client information screen waiting to run on the next pxe boot. If you 
have several jobs set to run you'll get a reboot loop.
Also sometimes the altiris after configuration task causes this.  Open the job 
by right clicking on it and choosing properties.  Click on the deploy image 
task and choose Modify. 
Uncheck the box to automatically perfom configuration tasks after modifying 
Clear the previous images set to run on the client and then push the client 
back out the client.
Reboot the client and press the F12 key when prompted to run the PXE boot.  If 
the client already has a partial OS on it you will need to do this manually.

Now I just have to figure out how Altiris works into eh whole scheme.  I was 
hoping to use it to build images a preconfigured Thin Client, to be able to 
push it to other thin clients, if needed.  


I was hoping I could totally build one out, create a "disk" image and go. 


I try to create disk image from the single thin client, it says uploading, but 
the thin client just reboots, reboots, reboots.


And I thought this setup would make my life easier.

I have to hold my hands up and admit that I'm not entirely sure. 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.

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 


I have altiris, man, that is no picnic to install.  I need to find a SQL server 
I can install it on.

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.
