Sun Ray demo kit upgrade
By user12609114 on Dec 02, 2007
I had another Sun Ray demo this week. Decided it was time to look at my Demo Kit and do some upgrades. From a hardware perspective I had to send the Naturetech back. We could never get the wireless to work. I have gotten my hands on an old Tadpole Comet and will be using it for my demos. I have also gotten a Sun Ray 2. I don't want to drag a monitor along, so I thinking about hooking the Sun Ray 2 to the projector and doing my preso's from the Sun Ray!
The first thing that I have checked is Fusion. Looks as though they have released 1.1. Not sure how I missed that update, but I did. Looks like the first thing I will be doing is upgrading Fusion. The upgrade has gone flawlessly. With the new version of Fusion my VM's seem to be working better.
Next I decided to upgrade my Solaris VM to Nevada 70. That effort is documented in this post. Since I had a new VM I decided to upgrade the Sun Ray Server Software and the Windows Connector as well which is documented here.
Finally the inclusion of a portable keyboard for the Sun Ray 2 finishes off the demo kit.
I did my first preso, hooked the Sun Ray 2 to the over head projector, and it went off flawlessly. Customer was very impressed!
