Dual monitors with Wyse C10LE clients and Server 2012

Hi,

I am in the process of upgrading our Terminal Servers from Server 2008 to Server 2012 R2 with the bulk of users using Wyse c10le thin clients with Dual monitors set ins span mode to access the servers.

This works well for server 2008 but when I try to access either a TS running 2012 RS or another server which is running server 2012 the dual screen appears as one instead of 2 separate screens.

When accessing the 2012 and 2012 R2 servers from my laptop with an external monitor it works as 2 separate screens.

Thanks Mark

Are you using the Wyse video splitter cable firstly? This gives you 1 digital display and 1 analog display.

If so, the next step is to go into the Properties of the RDP session and tick the Console box. Once you've done this, try logging into your TS servers and check if the issue is still occurring.

Do you happen to have the part number for the video splitter cable? Just want to check and make sure it's the correct one.

Next step would be to upgrade the firmware on the devices if they aren't already up to date. This does require an active maintenance contract with Wyse though.

The part number for the splitter cable is 920302-02L and the firmware we are running is 7.1

I will check to see if there is a firmware update.

It looks like the firmware upgrade has fixed the problem, will do some more testing and let you know.

Thanks for your help.

Great! Next step would have been to mess around with the WNOS.ini file but looks like there's no need for that now.
