This chapter describes the deployment and configuration of Wyse Management Suite on a single server.
Assigned with the primary IP address assigned to Ethernet0.
This domain is used by the devices to communicate with Tomcat over HTTPS.Xyz-pns.wysemanagementsuite.com
Round robin between three IP addresses assigned to Ethernet1, Ethernet2, and Ethernet3.
This domain is used by the devices to establish a connection with the front-end MQTT servers.
Mosquitto that is installed by the WMS installer must be configured as the back-end MQTT; front-end MQTT can be installed manually. The default installation directory is, Drive C:\Program Files\DELL\WMS.
Wyse Management Suite can handle up to 50,000 devices with a single instance of Mosquitto installed by the installer which serves both as front-end as well as back-end Mosquitto. To support 1,20,000 devices, you need separate Mosquitto instances to handle the device connections. Since each Mosquitto instance can handle most of 50,000 device connections, you need at least three front-end instances to handle 1,20,000 devices. Each of the three front-end Mosquitto instances interacts through port 1883, and each instance will be bound to a particular IP address. To install three new instances of Mosquitto, you need three new copies of Mosquitto deployment as explained in the following steps:
MongoDB has bootstrapProperties file that has various parameters to configure URLs for Tomcat to connect devices with back-end and front-end Mosquitto. The installer by default would configure both parameters with back-end Mosquitto as most users would be running with a single instance of Mosquitto.
Wyse Management Suite allows you to have local and remote repositories for applications, operating system images and so on. If the user accounts are distributed across geographies, it would be efficient to have a separate local repository for each of the distributed user account so the devices can download images from its local repository. This flexibility is provided with WMS_Repo.exe software. The WMS_Repo.exe is a Wyse Management Suite file repository software that helps to create distributed remote repositories which can be registered with Wyse Management Suite. The WMS_Repo.exe is available only for Pro license subscribers only.
