Im in the process of setting up my first server 2008...
I have a question...
Do I install the MS office on the server and then run the shortcut via folder redirection from the server?
Do I install the MS office locally on each pc? and have the shortcut from the folder redirection pointing to the MS office installed on the c drive?
If someone can shed some light on this?....ermmm... if you are awake at 1.00am?
You install it on the clients and then drop the shortcuts in the redirected folder/
what are the pros/ cons from running it from server? and also what are the licensing implications?
In reality a lot of "cons". Example: Depending how you set office up with things like templates etc, I change the default template to Pink with yellow spots, oh look 10,000 users have spotty backgrounds (Yes this depends if you redirect templates locally, blah blah, but just an easy example).
How do users install things like addons they want? (For example our SIMs manager uses one for data import/export to another statistics site)
When I was referring to licenses it's the age old, I want 10 office, I buy 10 licenses. I put office on server, I now have "insert computer numbers" potential users I need to license, unless you're restricting who is using it etc, which then kind of defeats point to installing on server, or you run the risk of having unlicensed users etc etc.
