This appendix includes general CMOS management information for use with the following supported
• C10 BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001-0407 or later
• D10D BIOS version 3.0D or later
• R10 BIOS version 1.0H_SPC-0T51 or later
Depending on the method of distribution you want to use, complete one of the following:
•CMOS Central Management: Extracting CMOS Settings to the File Server for Distribution.
•CMOS Local Management: Extracting CMOS Settings to a USB Key for Distribution.
CMOS Central Management: Extracting CMOS Settings to
the File Server for Distribution
CMOS central management allows ThinOS administrators to easily manage CMOS settings for large
deployments of thin client devices using central configuration methodologies. The following instructions
are for C10 BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001–0407. However, the instructions are also applicable for other
supported BIOS versions.
1. To prepare a Reference Drive containing BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001-0407 or later:
a. The Reference Device is a golden image you use to distribute to other thin client devices. To use
Reference Drive, enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Press the Delete key, enter the Password — Fireport
(case sensitive) and press Enter. Configure the CMOS settings, includes AutoPower, BootOrder,
P-key setting, BiosPassword.
b. Save your CMOS Settings.
c. Restart your thin client device.
2. To create a CMOS INI File in a File Server:
a. In the file server, create a cmos.ini file and place it in the wnos directory/folder under the file
server ini directory. Make sure that wnos directory on the file server has upload privilege.
b. Type the following name in the cmos.ini file: Device=cmos Action=extract.
3. To reboot the Reference Device to the File Server containing the CMOS INI File:
a. On the thin client you want to use as a Reference Device, start the thin client.
b. In the Login dialog box, enter the credentials you need to access the cmos.ini file.
c. After login, to view Event Log tab.
a. Click System Information icon → System Information dialog box → Event Log tab
you can open the event log to view a CMOS: extract to C10_cmos.1.0B_SPC001 event. This
means that the CMOS central management file (containing the CMOS settings from your
Reference Device) is now copied to the wnos directory/folder on the file server. As this is a C10
BIOS version 1.0B_SPC001-0407 example, the CMOS central management file name would be
