    Default anyone using zd 2 beta on win terminal server?

    I have not used zd 1 since it was not multiuser. I am curious to see if anyone has used it multiuser yet? How are the resources for the install and then for each user? I am currently finding that 15 users each having FF 3.6.x at 100MB+ just for zimbra is taxing on the servers memory.
    Thanks

    I tried this and it's actually worse than running Firefox and ZWC on WTS. With ZD you get much of the browser overhead, plus the load of running ZDesktop per user as well.

    If you use TS, you could try using Chrome or Chrome-within-IE instead of Firefox. I found that lightened things up a little. You could also use ThreadMaster (an excellent utility for TS) to hold down the CPU usage of inidividual Firefox.exe processes on TS.

    I will check into ThreadMaster. I am more memory constrained than cpu.
    I thought that Chrome is more of a memory hog than FF 3.6.x? Have you installed a Chrome webapp globally so that it is on everyone's desktop (or all users)? I am curious to know of all the chrome tweaks for running zimbra on a TS?
    Thanks

    I'm more CPU bound than memory, so I couldn't say. I found Chrome runs more quickly than FireFox, or at least doesn't jam the terminal server up as badly.

    There are precious few documents on getting Chrome working well on TS. I never went beyond the "yup, it installs" phase.

    What I eventually went with was Firefox+AdBlock&NoScript but with centrally-managed whitelists for both add-ons. It didn't help Zimbra, but it did help Firefox-induced load on the TS caused by users doing discretionary browsing.

    I will start playing around some more with chrome. I imagine as google tries to push the web app idea more, it will be easier to integrate better.
