Running remoteapp from TS1 inside a terminal server session on TS2
Posted on 2008-10-01
We have two physical locations with terminal servers present in both locations. These locations are not yet joined in AD. Today some users access terminal server on the other location to access needed software. The following would off course be implemented AFTER joining the two locations in the same domain.
Example: Remote users connecting to terminal server on location1(where home folder and most shared recources they need are present) also need access to for example CRM app on location2. Any problems assosiated with running CRM from terminal server location2 as remoteapp inside a terminal server session in the terminal server on location1? Credentials would have to be passed on as in the single sign on process so users don´t get asked about this a second time when accessing the remoteapp. Can I restrict this adding path to the terminal server on location2 in software restriction as allow? I do not want to open up for network access for users accessing the terminal server, but if I have to I have to. I don´t even know if this setup will work at all..?
The CRM application in question has the database running on a server in loc2, and the client isn´t capable of a connection over VPN due to need of bandwith to database. The clientsoftware for the application can because of this not be installed in the terminal server in location1. Running as a remoteapp from terminal server in loc2 should however not be a problem.
This also mean that a single user access 2 terminal servers with the same credentials at the same time. Any issues here?
