  • How to do it?

    Hello,

    I work in an environment with about 200 customer service reps. What I would like to do is configure a terminal server farm and have all the reps log on to the TS and launch their apps. I do not want to have to install the app on each individual pc.

    I would also like to specify which applications each individual user has access to.

    I know it can be done, can someone point me to a tutorial on how to do it and the recommended setup?

    Thanks.

    Yes, there is a Microsoft thing called "Common Scenarios" which you can download from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en and read all about it at this site: http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true

    It's a set of Group Policy Objects that link to various organisational usints and these achieve the objective of restricting workstations/users to running only certain apps and effectively locking down their workstations. I realise you are taling about a TS situation, but it'll be the same principle.

    What I think would suit you best would be the App Station scenario, which you can alter easily enough to specify only the applications you want certain users to run. Apply a different range of applications to different organisational units, then put users in the OU they should belong to.

    You may also like to look at the title you use for your post and ask yourself how helpful that is to us? A better title gets you better response from more people, and the title you chose is about as useless as can be! (Just a gentle suggestion, my friend, for I am not a moderator!)
    Best wishes,

      Well said Paul. When I looked at the title I thought it related to something in the porno range.

      Let us not see a non helpful title like that again. Thank you.

        I have a similar situation but on a smaller scale and we use Propalms. Its integrated with Active Directory for controlling access to applications by users, groups and OU's.

        There website is http://propalms.com/

        and for online demonstrations: http://www.propalms.com/index.php?se...demonstrations

            Also, the Common Scenarios would work in a few of our locations, but the reason I mentioned the Terminal Server is because we have some dumb terminals running windows ce and they will not join the domain. Just have access through either a TS or Citrix Server.

              ... therefore, the user's GPOs would be pushed onto the users who logon to the TS and so it would work in ALL of your locations, isn't that the case?

                Yes you're right.
