Using Thinclient with Win SBS 2003

RE: Using Thinclient with Win SBS 2003
Hi Dennis,

I'm confused...I think this has gotten more complicated than it needs to be. Let's back up here...

You originally had a Dell Workstation. I'm assuming you used that Dell Workstation to connect through remote Desktop to your Windows Server 2003. If this is true then there is no need to find out what userid or domain to use...you already know this. Use the same credentials you previously used when you used remote desktop from the Dell Workstation.

If you didn't use remote desktop from the Dell workstation then maybe you used the desktop from the Dell workstation. That's dead...now you are using the desktop from the Windows 2003 Server. It will look different than the Dell workstation. Makes sense?

Ok..now on to remote desktop...I'm unclear what you are expecting here? For remote desktop use the IP of the Windows 2003 Server and login with a userid and password that has the correct access to login with Remote Desktop. You'll see a Windows 2003 Desktop. Server Manager will open if it's set to open when logging in. Close it if it's opened. Customize this desktop anyway you like. When you logout and log back in with the same user you should see this same customized desktop for that userid.

If this is all unclear to you then I would suggest you do one of two things:

1. Reach out to someone in your area to assist you with your connection issues. If possible have them look over your shoulder as you show them what you are doing. If you have a deadline looming and your job is on the line, you shouldn't be messing around with what userid to use and what domain to use. These should already be established and known. Don't let this get down to the last day where you are still scrambling.
2. Have a backup plan or escape plan that will solve your problem by the deadline with whatever you need to get the job done. Using the Pi for Remote Desktop should be easy...if it's not then don't use it. Use something you are familiar with and comfortable with. On the side play with the Pi and remote desktop (when you don't have a deadline hanging over you).

It's up to you if you want to continue...I'll keep an eye on this thread if you have more questions...the above is just what I would do if I were in your situation.
