Domain Application Question

Hello!

Ok, im really new to this, so i need some help just being pointed in the right direction so that I can research it.

I've seen networks that give out permission to certian applictions based on domian log in.

For example, user A logs in and has access to the entire office suite, and certian programs. When user b logs in to the domain, they do not get the other programs.
I know this can be done locally, but i'm talking a network of 5000 computers. At any computer, the user A has access to those programs (and their personal files). How does this happen? I know that all these programs are not installed on each computer, so its as if the server is installing them per sesson.... I'm just confused... is this Terminal Services? or something else?

What is this called and where do i find info on it?

Thanks!

Bick

Hi bick2000,

I just responded to your other question : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_21163898.html#0 "Network Application Question".  I suggest you ask the Mods to delete one or the other.

Anyway, this is what I posted:


You're *sure* the applications aren't installed locally and you just can't see them?

There are two things that could be happening here - one is terminal services and the other is that the applications are actually being installed on the fly.

I'd bet that it's Terminal Services.  It would be a logical solution in the environment you describe.

As for how it's done, there (once again!) are a few options.
It could be done with group policies in the OUs.  These can be configured to show restricted desktops and only allow you to see the icons for the applications you're supposed to access.
The other way is to use a security group to restrict who can access the application executable files.

Basically, there's a few ways you can go about doing the above - which is the most appropriate depends on your environment.

Does that help?

If you'd like more info, can you please explain a little more about what you're trying to achieve?
