3 Copyright 2003 Christa Anderson The Terminal Services Report Card Where Terminal Services has been, where its going and how the changes affect the need for third-party software

4 Agenda What do you need a terminal server to do? Evolution of Terminal Services Whats new in Windows Server 2003? Whats still missing? Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

5 What do you need a terminal server to do? Provide a rich client experience to users Map local resources to terminal sessions if needed Provide users secure access to the server Simplify printer driver management Get applications to the terminal servers and configure them appropriately Distribute client sessions across servers Distribute licenses to qualified users

6 Evolution of Terminal Services Windows NT, Terminal Server Edition Windows 2000 Server

7 TSE Remote RDP sessions 256 color, no session-client interaction Difficult to manage per-user settings Almost required MetaFrame Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

8 Windows 2000 Server Session encryption and compression Improvements in bandwidth usage and resource usage Client printer mapping Shared clipboard Remote control (session shadowing) Integration with core OS New license management utility Network load balancing (Advanced Server and DataCenter only)

9 Whats new in Windows Server 2003? Client changes Server changes Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

10 Client changes: B Automatic client reconnect Concurrent connection limiting True color support Mapped drives Sound Improved full-screen mode More responsive sessions

11 Server changes: B- Group policies managing server and user settings New licensing scheme Control over license issue Server farms (Enterprise Server only) Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

12 Server and user group policies You can now configure Terminal Services using group policies Per-computer settings control Configured policies control otherwise, normal configuration priorities are in effect Use loopback policies to make sure that appropriate policies control when users log onto the terminal server

13 Licensing in Windows Server 2003 Both per-seat and per-user TSCALs Unlimited External Connector license replaces Internet Connector license Unlimited pool disabled Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

14 Server farms Not equivalent to MetaFrame server farms Allows users to connect to a single virtual server Uses NLB or other load balancing to ensure that user requests are spread out Reconnected sessions restored on previous server

15 Whats still missing? Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

16 Server-side wish list Printer driver management Stress-based or application-based load balancing Server zones Click the Ask a question button in the lower left section of your screen to submit a question.

17 Client-side wish list Application publishing Seamless windows Automatic printer mapping for CE devices Bandwidth management for print jobs Built-in support for non-Win32 clients SSL support

18 Whats in MetaFrame XP? 3 versions of MetaFrame XP, all with different capabilities Many features also included in feature releases Remember that some MetaFrame features are available in the OS or in Microsoft add-ons

19 Are other options available? Terminal Services has become so capable that its worth investigating other options for a la carte additions such as: Print driver management or elimination Non-Windows client support Application metering Etc., etc.

20 Summary Windows Server 2003 doesnt get an A yet but neither does MetaFrame Most of the important features of MetaFrame are for very large networks You can use the core OS to duplicate some features in MetaFrame Investigate single-function utilities to supplement native Terminal Services
