How to install the Sun Ray Windows Connector 2.2 for a POC

One of the very powerful things of the Sun Ray solution is the ability to display windows desktops. The Sun Ray Windows Connector allows us to connect to Windows Terminal Servers or a single XP instance. This how to is for a quick setup to get windows running on Sun Ray for a POC. The Windows Connector Software can be found here.

Extract the software:
# unzip srwc_2.2_solaris.zip

Install the connector:
Create a group of the connector proxy to run as

# groupadd utsrwc

Run the installer
# ./srwc_2.2/installer
Accept the license
Enter the name of the group we just created - utsrwc

Run the automatic configuration script
# /opt/SUNWuttsc/sbin/uttscadm -c

Restart the Sun Ray Server Software
# /opt/SUNWut/sbin/utrestart -c

Note: Now is when we would apply patches. Since this a new release there are not any yet.

Configure Kiosk Mode:
We will use the web interface for the Sun Ray server to configure the Sun Ray server to present windows desktops. Log into your web admin port http://<name of run ray server>:1660. The username is admin and the password is the one you gave it during set up.

  1. Click on the advanced tab
  2. Click on the kiosk mode tab
  3. Click on the edit button

Changing the system policy requires a restart of the Sun Ray Services

  2. tick the checkbox in front of your server name

The system will go through a dialog about the server restarting.

At this point our system is configured to present a windows desktop. 2 other great scripts for windows POCs are Point and Shoot and MetaKiosk.
