Sharing is Nice: The User Tested USB Redirection List

We all learn at an early age that sharing is the right thing to do.  I get to constantly remind my 3- and 5-year old girls about this very important aspect about being a good person.

How do I get from small kids sharing to the new Sun Ray Software 5 release?  Wait for it...wait for it....

It's another ThinkThin update about the Sun Ray Software wiki!

In my earlier posts, I talked about how you can use the Comment feature on any page to leave feedback. And, I still encourage everyone to keep doing that.

But, since the SRS 5 Early Access releases, we've provided the following User Tested page for all wiki users to share the USB devices they've tested with the new USB redirection feature.



Currently, Sun supports USB redirection for all USB devices that fall within the following device types:  flash drives, printers, scanners, USB-to-serial adapters, and USB-to-parallel adapters.

The USB Redirection User Tested List lets you (the Sun Ray user community) share what devices are working for you, including USB devices not in the supported device type categories.

This page already has over 200 edits and over 100 entries from a number of users. And, I just added a Recent Contributors section that dynamically shows who has made the latest edits to the page.

So, what are you waiting for?  If you are using the USB redirection feature and you want to share the devices you are using with this cool new feature, share away!

Hi,

Why is it that from the time the USB flash drive is inserted in the Sunray it takes more than a minute for the device to become accessible in the Windows VM?

Thank you.

Hi,

Where can I obtain information on how to size a Sunray server running on x4170 hardware for CPU and memory in a pure kiosk configuration where the Sun connector redirects the session to a XP VM? Currently I base my config on 20 - 35 users per CPU core and 256MB ram per user. Also with network configuration as in how do I team NIC's together using Solaris 10 for the above configuration, is it needed or what are the best practices.

Thank you.

@Anish,

No, USB Redirection is not currently supported with 2003.
