Firmware update

On delivery, the devices are normally equipped with the operating system and the basic software components such as ICA client, RDP client, browser and emulations. This software called firmware is stored on the flash drive. Whenever new software versions are available or demands change and software components need to be added or removed, the firmware can be updated.

Basic steps

To perform the update in one step, use an Update command. In this case, the required software packages are delivered and then automatically installed. Alternatively, the two actions can be uncoupled: The software is delivered in a first step when you use a Delivery command. It is subsequently installed when you run the Update command.

To save bandwidth, you can use a proxy client for updates. For further information, see Static proxy.

Ways to initiate a firmware update

Updates can be performed immediately or initiated automatically at a defined point in time:

If configured, users can defer the execution of a firmware update to a later point in time.

Updates are only performed, when the relevant IDF has been modified. All update activities are logged.

To reset your devices to initial state, perform a recovery installation. A recovery might also be required if critical feature packages of the Base OS have been changed, or if your operating system has not been updated for a long time. With a recovery installation, all data on the storage medium are wiped (except license data) and the eLux software is installed. For further information, see Recovery procedures in the Recovery short guide.
