Account to use for installation application on terminal services


If I install applications on a terminal server, does it matter which account I use: local or domain (since I use /install-mode)?
In other words: is there a best practises on this?

+ can you install the application from a simple rdp or do you need to go via /console-session?

Personally I have not had issues with using a domain user with just normal RDP (in XenApp 6 on Server 2008 R2).  

If we're talking Best Practice though, I would use Citrix's Installation Manager (or an alternative) - all deployments to Citrix servers should be done via automated tools where possible, it is the only way to ensure consistency.  Then you don't need to worry about installation modes, username, session types, etc.
