Is there an easy way to tell what configuration is being applied to IGEL OS on boot?


Is there an easy way to tell what configuration is being applied on boot? I have a machine that receives this message each time it boots.


hmmmmmmmm… not BEFORE the settings are applied, I don’t think. unless someone knows if the settings are stored in a temporary file before being applied

you would have to look at the UMS


I suspect it’s the system recognizing an external screen. Is that normal behavior? For some reason I feel like I only see this inside the office with our UMS. We aren’t using the ICG for now but definitely don’t recall seeing it off-net.


System, RemoteManagement,Default Action on boot, Apply changes immadiately.


@member he was asking how to see what the changes are

> I suspect it’s the system recognizing an external screen. Is that normal behavior?

No that is not normal. A new screen would not cause the configuration to be updated from the UMS


That’s what I figured. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?


Thanks, then if logging is active (UMS Administration, Logging), you could look after a reboot, right click on device Logging, Messages/Event!


> Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

Well the question is, what event is triggering the config change? E.g. a network change, which reconnects the device to UMS, and the device receives the latest settings from UMS

Do other people use the UMS? Do you have any Default Directory Rules or Jobs?

Also, try @member’s advice with the logging 👍

> device receives the latest settings from UMS

my train of thought is that the settings in the UMS are changing and then get propagated to the device


Thank you both! I’ll turn on logging. I’m actually going to move the license to a new device so I’ll see if the issue persists there as well.


awesome. If you make any progress let us know 🙂
