  • HP Thin Clients, USB Card Reader, Server 2008

    Hey there!

    We're planning to switch our terminal-server from 2003 to 2008. Both are up and running and we'd be ready to tell the users to use the new server, when the last problem is solved:

    Under 2008 one can't open the folder holding the contents of the sd-cards in the USB-reader. It says something about missing permissions. We're running a second 2008 server at the moment and both have this problem with every user, even administrators.

    I called the HP-Hotline (t5520 thin-clients), but they only told me that server 2008 isn't supported with these clients. But they do mount the card reader!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Greets,

    M. Wolf

    Hi,

    I doubt you would get any further with this if HP themselves told you that it's not supported. They usually give you an authorative answer whether positive or not.
    Short of a dirty trick or workaround, I would suggest you contact them again and thoroughly explain you situation and see what other options you have got. Maybe upgrade your Thin clients to a newer model or stay with 2003.
    I believe your problems are related to the RDP version that is run on those thin clients with windows CE 5.0.

      Thanks for your answer!

      After some more testing we found out that the problem isn't restricted to the thin clients.

      We found 3 kinds of errors by now. All start with the same text: Can't access %name%. Ask your admin if you have got proper permissions.
      (Translated analogously from german)
      That text is followed by a reason, which differs each time (in brackets):

      1.: the thin clients. (File exists)
      2.: a linux-box connecting with rdesktop and mounting the home-folder (tried accessing an illegal adress)
      3.: a share on our nas (couldn't find username) - it doesn't even ask for a username!

      Seems very unlikely to me that it's something about rdp...but i still have no clue about other reasons.
      All 3 worked with 2003...

      Maybe anyone got some more ideas?
