Thin Client Class Available

Is there a class that can return info from a Wyse Thin Client “dumb” terminal like the below does for a workstation?

Gwmi Win32_Computersystem -Comp workstation230 | Select *

I realize info would be limited, but I would like to know, at minimum, who is logged on and maybe power on date/time. We are in a Citrix environment and I wondered if I would need some sort of addin (?)

Many thanks!

No. The Wyse terminal doesn’t actually run Windows, so it doesn’t run WMI, so it can’t respond to WMI queries. If you queried the TS session, you’d be getting information for the TS server, not the dumb terminal.

“Dumb” means “no smarts” <grin>.

Thanks. I was afraid that would be the case…
