The Connection Broker started using the Teradici AWI to manage PCoIP devices as Teradici dropped support for the CMI in their zero clients, and then their host cards. Here's a rundown on the Connection Broker releases as we transitioned from CMI to AWI support 

  • Release 9.0.34.25 includes CMI support and has limited support for the AWI. This is the release that began using the AWI for the zero client management, and it has limited AWI functionality for the hostcards. AWI support must be enabled on the clients and hostcards 
  • Release 9.0.36.5 improves the AWI support, and is the last release that also supports the CMI. CMI support is disabled by default. You can enable CMI support by renaming a file on the Connection Broker server.  
  • Release 9.0.38.0 removed CMI support since it is no longer supported by TeradiciTeradici devices are supported solely by the AWI.   

Here's the recommended upgrade path:

  • Connection Broker Release 9.0.36.5 has CMI and AWI support, though CMI support must be enabled manually. To enable it, rename the /home/leo/app/cms_soap.pl.README file to cms_soap.pl. 
  • Upgrade clients & firmware to version 21.x . The clients and hostcards should have AWI enabled. Both clients and hostcards should direct syslog to your Connection Broker. 
  • Upgrade to Connection Broker to the most current production release.
