    Default Zimbra Desktop and Terminal Services (and Citrix environement)

    Hi,

    Have you got a feed back on this type of installation :

    Zimbra Desktop and Terminal Services (and Citrix)

    Configuration : Windows 2000 SP4 Server with TSE mode and Citrix Presentation server 4.0.

    How does the Zimbra Desktop client work on those environement ?

    We have roaming profiles and don't want to install the Zimbra Desktop in the user profile.

    Best regards

    I'll ask the question the other way round: what is the aim of using zDesktop (as a ZCS client) on TSE/Citrix?

    Same question applies if zDesktop is used as client for "something" else.

    Merci for reply.

    Well, our costumer has a Citrix environment, with a lot of thinclient. He wishes to publish the zDesktop (as a zcs client) instead of zWebclient or Outlook (+ZCO).

    Is that the answer you want to ?

    Best regards.

    I understand the customer wants this but this seems IMHO totally wrong.

    Using ZCS allows to have all messages in a single place (server) with SIS (and HSM & deduplicated backups if you're using NE).

    Using Outlook+ZCO or zDesktop will create a local (in each user profile) copy of all the data.
    While this is nice for roadwarriors and laptop, it's an awfull waste of space and ressources on a TSE farm, isn't it?

    Once again, just my own point of view on this...

    To answer more on your question:
    . zdesktop 1.0.x installs itself in the user profile (default)
    . zdesktop 2.0.x installs its binaries in the "program files" and the data in the user profile

    You can trick zDesktop 1.0.x to install "elsewhere" while you can't yet with 2.0.x. See : https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=43474

    I'll tell it to my costumer, and we'll see what to do.

    The answer will be back asap.

    Best regards.

    Je suis entièrement d'accord !

    Nous allons procéder autrement.

    Merci pour ces informations.

    Je clos mon post.
