Terminal Server for Administration

Hi there!

I'd also like to be able to launch full server or workstation packages from
a Win2K+WTS Deployment.
I understand that Denver discourages JDE development on WTS clients because
specs could be corrupted, etc... but why should
it be disabled on the Deployment?
I think that OneWorld bugs are far more harmful that any potential spec
corruption that could appear from my WTS activity!
I also agree that Win2K+WTS client is excellent... It's far better than
PCAnywhere and its performance is similar to ICA.

Nevertheless, while we all wait for that WTS fix some package stuff can be
done on a Win2K+WTS Deployment :

a) Update packages that don't include any TBLE trigger or BSFN.

b) Full workstation or server packages can be partially done on the
Deployment if you :
b.1) Define a full client package there, but keep BSFN, NER generation and
Compression checks unmarked.
b.2) Submit it
b.3) When it finishes, go to a development workstation, Package Build, reset
that package, unactivate it, Build Revisions,
uncheck Spec generation, and check BSFN generation, keep Compression
unmarked (compression runs much much faster
on the Deployment), activate the package, Submit, it will ask if you want to
erase package directories, say NO.
b.4) When it ends, you'll have specs and BSFN already generated.
b.5) If you want compression, you may go to the Deployment, Package Build,
reset that package, unactivate it, Build Revisions,
uncheck Spec generation, uncheck BSFN and NER generation, check Compression,
activate the package, Submit, it will ask
if you want to erase package directories, say NO. At the end, you'll have a
full compressed client package.
Note that server packages don't usually run with compression.
This runs much faster than a full package being built on the client
workstation.

I understand why you shouldn't use the tools when the terminal server is set
up for multiuser mode. but, if an administrator is the only user and WTS
comes with W2K for this purpose - Why not? I have used VNC and like it just
fine, still have to say WTS on W2K is pretty smooth for administration.

Re: RE: Terminal Server for Administration

I've had problems twice now trying to install software via TS in admin mode. Switched over to the server direct and all of a sudden no more problems.

I can't imagine what could be going on in a package build that would cause those kinds of problems (it's not doing any registry changes or anything like that), but maybe they're afraid of similar problems.

In case you missed my earlier post on the other thread....

I would strongly recommend NOT using a Terminal Server to run the tools - however, you can still take advantage of Citrix ICA to run your development - I describe how to use VNC in a Citrix Session on my Website.

What you need to do is install a development workstation with VNC Server software (its a little like PC Anywhere - but a lot better, and much more server based than client based and it works under Citrix unlike PC Anywhere) - then use the VNCVIEWER.EXE in a Citrix session to control the development workstation.

Between the Development Workstation and the Citrix box you'll be using VNC which is high traffic - just like PC Anywhere - but it will be on a LAN, so it doesn't matter too much. However, between your local workstation and the Citrix box - you'll be using ICA to ensure that the traffic is low and response time is high !

I love helping to remotely administer OneWorld systems using the above architecture - I can pretty much do any task in the Citrix session including package builds !

By the way - VNC out to the internet isn't too bad either - better than PC Anywhere - and I have a Palm V with Wireless internet access so I can launch package builds from the airport !

What does that do? What rights on that group? Is this a JDE workaround? More information, please! :)
