Thin Client terminals and AD

Can I ask some basics on thin client terminals (wyse terminals) and logging into a domain via such devices. Where and how is it configured so that when the user powers up their terminal it logs them into the domain, and where exactly are the logging onto? For example on my desktop PC when I login to the domain all my desktop and software is on the local drive, but for thin client users where exactly are their software apps and desktop? And is there anyway to see in the users properties in ADUC exactly where they are logging into via the WYSE terminal? Thanks

Whats the name of the OS? Thanks
Model dependant!  They have used WinCE, Linux and new ones use Wyse ThinOS

>>The sessions can be configured to connect to a specific Terminal Server/Cluster, Citrix Server/Farm



Where can you see what has been configured per user, and where exactly is it configured? I assume its not on the OS itself as they could be used by anyone at any time.
From memory, there is a connection manager on the Client - this allows you to configure sessions of various types

What model(s) of Client do you have?

Thanks all

So do the WYSE terminals have an internal drive/storage, or where is the OS actually installed on?
