How to install the Ricoh ESA Unified Client

Use Device Registration Service to send configuration settings to the MFD.

Before performing this procedure, configure an application profile on the Applications tab and specify it in a device profile on the Devices tab.
  1. Browse to the Device Registration Service (for example, http://10.16.37.51:9000/device).
  2. Click Devices and select the device.
  3. In the Details pane, select Install or Install Start from the drop-down list box.
  4. Click Perform selected action.
  5. Install the Ricoh Xlet:
    1. Go to the Device Registration Service installation directory (for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\NSi\Device Registration Service\Service\Plugins\) and copy the 33956099.zip file to the desktop.
    2. Unzip the file to a temporary folder on the desktop and open the UnifiedESAXlet.dalp file in a text editor.
    3. At the bottom of the file, modify the deviceRegServer and deviceRegPort arguments for your Device Registration Service instance as shown in the following example:
      <argument>deviceRegServer=15.166.37.151</argument>
      <argument>deviceRegPort=8353</argument>
                     
    4. Save the file and create an updated 33956099.zip file from the temporary folder.
    5. Replace the original 33956099.zip file in the Device Registration Service installation directory (for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\NSi\Device Registration Service\Service\Plugins\) with the updated file.
    If the arguments have the correct connection information, the Ricoh ESA Unified Client starts. Ricoh ESA Unified Client startup scenarios contains more information on factors that may affect how the Ricoh ESA Unified Client starts.
  6. Install the SSO Xlet:
    1. In the Device Registration Service Devices pane, select the device.
    2. Click Edit on the Details toolbar.
    3. Select True for OM Enable SSO Provider.
    4. Click Save.

    The system adds the 34084353.zip SSO Xlet file to the Device Registration Service installation directory (for example, C:\Program Files (x86)\NSi\Device Registration Service\Service\Plugins\). How to add a Ricoh ESA device provides more information on the OM Enable SSO Provider option.
