I am in the beginning stages of testing out thin client setups with RDS from Microsoft.

Can anyone just give suggestions or ideas on the best setup here?  Have never tested it so any information is appreciated.

With so little information this is very tough question to answer--knowing what you want to do, what programs you want to run, how you plan to connect the RDS, etc. will all be helpful to know. However a good starting point may be some reading from Microsoft, best practices and compatibility

Note the additional links in this article about the analyzer too.

Well, the beginning stages for us are that we are just trying to basically use these to run Office, their EMR client, and just IE.

Right now we are looking at starting off with machines of lesser importance to cut down on equipment and support costs for these lesser machines.

So any information is helpful even if it is pointing towards another type of thin client setup.

We have not tested any setups yet.  We are just gathering information on what we should test.

Not sure how much reading you have done already but this is a good place to start http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd736539%28WS.10%29.aspx.

And here is discussion of thin clients (user forum)

And this is a Microsoft blog dedicated to RDS http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/
