Thin Client for Dummies...
I'm currently in the process of considering putting Thin Clients in to medium usage clusters.
More than likely going to go for MS Terminal Server with a mixture of Linux and XP iGel Clients.
Having come from a Secondary School were I helped to manage a large (800 Client) RM network and a basic Vanilla admin network, setting up a thin Vanilla network is a big step for me but I think definitely the way to go.
Moving in to a "school" within a Uni were nothing is managed (all individually ghosted) - I'm up against issues where the main IT Department won't let my "school" add a DC or operate on a sub-domain.
I can add a member server, but a DC is a big no-no due to "security issues"
I believe by adding a TS as a member this will then authenticate to the (separate) LDAP? But failing that It looks like I may have to authenticate the users to the LDAP using PGina?
I would appreciate any pointers in the right direction along with indications of where I can get white papers/how to's to help me along. ;)
