HOWTO CONFIGURE SIEMENS TERMINALS:

Siemens Terminals are thin client where one can create a connection to a remote system where it exist a configuration to be displayed on these terminals. For example, we can automatically start a remote desktop session which start a PVSS panel shortcut.

Hotkeys

The Task hotkey enables you to switch between currently open applications or “tasks”.
CTRL + ALT + : Left selection in the Applications bar
CTRL + ALT + : Right selection in the Applications bar
The terminal password authorization hotkey re-enables disabled settings.
CTRL + ALT + Pos1 (HOME)
The terminal password has to be entered.
To show the Starter window (Terminal Connection Manager) on top of other windows:
CTRL + ALT + End
Holding the Shift key during boot, the device starts in VGA mode.

Configuring Auto-start of PVSS panel running on a Windows Terminal server:

  • On Terminal Server side :
    First one need to create a batch script on the Windows Terminal server on which we will call the PVSS shortcut:
    • Connect to the dedicated Terminal Server UI04W Warning, important NEW: Since July 2010 a dedicated virtual machine UI04w, outside the UI cluster, serve all Terminals
    • then into L:\scripts, copy an existing batch file (ie Terminal_ALARMScreen.bat) and modify the path to the desired PVSS shortcut (in G:\online\ecs\shortcut38..).

  • Configuring Siemens Terminal thin client :
    Go to the Configuration menu: Start->Starter->Configuration (tab)->New(button)->RDP(tab).
    • Name: #Choose a name for this connection: UI04W Alarm Screen
    • Server: UI04W
    • Application: #Path to the script previously created on Terminal server UI04W: L:\scripts\Terminal_ALARMScreen.bat
    • User: lhcb_oper
    • Password: lhcb oper password should be given by the Online Admins
    • Domain: lhcb
    • Check "Start automaticaly after 0s" if only this connection will run onto this terminal, otherwise keep it unchecked.
    • Advanced settings (button)-> Display (tab) -> select "Full screen" and "True color"

This new connection could now be tested from the Application tab, select it and press connect (button). Finally test auto-startup by rebooting this terminal.

NB: One can also setup several connections onto the same terminal but only one can be automatically started.

Running an application through an ssh session on a Thin Client:

Configuration is only required as Thin client side:

  • Configuring Siemens Terminal thin client :
    Go to the Configuration menu: Start->Starter->Configuration (tab)->New(button)->Local(tab).
    • Fill in the name of the ssh connection
    • At application menu, select ssh
    • As parameter, add ssh command line parameters, like: -X online@plus /group/online/dataflow/scripts/farmmon -dense -all

HOWTO CONFIGURE Transtec Pc TERMINALS ( ex : Alarm screen):

Configuration Transtec PC Terminal21 ( Alarm screem ) :

Windows XP SP3


  • Autologin : user = lhcb_oper password= " see the twiki"
  • The schorcut to start the project are in Start --> Startup
  • The schorcut:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /C G:\online\ecs\Shortcuts38\PVSSsetup.bat G:/online/ecs/PVSSShortcutProjects38/LHCb/ECS_W/config/config ECS01:13002 ECS01:13001 -p fwAlarmHandling/fwAlarmHandlingScreen.pnl
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /C G:\online\ecs\Shortcuts38\PVSSsetup.bat G:/online/ecs/PVSSShortcutProjects38/LHCb/ECS_W/config/config ECS01:13002 ECS01:13001 -p lbECS/LHCb_LHC.pnl
  • To restart the terminal : shutdown -s -f -t 30 - m \\terminal21
