If you want to migrate a client from one server to another, (I.E. from a Cloud PoC to an OnPrem server)  follow these simple steps:

  • To move an existing device you can use the Migration Helper functionality inside the console to generate scripts or registry keys.

That information can be subsequently used in a software package or simply inside the profile editor.

Generate script :

where the MgmtUri is your Server URI

MgmtUsername is the site username  

MgmtPassword is the site password

Option Explicit

Dim objWSHShell

Set objWSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Dim brokerPath

brokerPath = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\ThinKiosk\ConnectionInfo\"

If Is32BitOS() = False Then

    brokerPath = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ThinKiosk\ConnectionInfo\"

End If

objWSHShell.RegWrite brokerPath & "MgmtUri", "https://YOURSERVER/tstmgmt", "REG_SZ"

objWSHShell.RegWrite brokerPath & "MgmtUsername", "QZ9n36G907WCmP", "REG_SZ"

objWSHShell.RegWrite brokerPath & "MgmtPassword", "2TiRRmHbGSON4obWe8RzpdCGS9c", "REG_SZ"

Function Is32BitOS()

    If GetObject("winmgmts:root\cimv2:Win32_Processor='cpu0'").AddressWidth = 32 Then

        Is32BitOS = True


        Is32BitOS = False

    End If

End Function
