What would you ask the Terminal Server Product Group at Microsoft?

On Wednesday of this week, I’ll be spending the day with the Terminal Server product group at Microsoft.

On Wednesday of this week, I’ll be spending the day with the Terminal Server product group at Microsoft. (Along with Ron Oglesby, Christa Anderson, and Claudio Rodrigues.)

What questions should I ask them? Do you have any feedback you’d like to provide to them about current or future versions of Terminal Server? What do you like and not like?

Post your questions to the “comments” section at the bottom of this page, and I’ll post the answers later in the week.

Is it true what Citrix can do, terminal server can do also with additional configurations from Group Policy?

Does terminal server share the same engine as Citrix?

Can / When will you allow TSCal to be run on Multiply servers to avoid having a single point of failure. This new share TSCal would both share TSCal info
Maybe on SQL?

Is it right that with SP2 for W2k3 the multi media support in a terminal server enviroment is much more better and that Seemless Applications are possible?
Do they plan to implement a better load management?
Is there a tool like smcconsole for citrix where I can see and alter the network load?
What is the strategy of microsoft terminal server?
How does Longhorn affect the terminal server strategy?

In the past (and even still, to a degree) Microsoft has been reluctant to go public with any of the terminal services information. Your site has brought a lot of news out into the open. I would ask Microsoft why there seems to be two positions on Terminal Services...a public, very subdued position, and a private, seemingly very aggressive position.

All I need is seamless apps and I am dumping Citrix forever. That's the only thing keeping that arogant company in our shop. Please ask if they have any goals for this.

Data being transfered to a COM port (we use a receipt printer), appears to be heavily dependent on network traffic. As the network gets busier, the slower
the data is transfered to the COM port. The screens continue to work at the
same speed. Why the BIG drop off in transmission speed for data transfered
to a mapped COM port?

Since NT 4.0 TSE the AltGr button combos on swedish, finnish and some other international keyboards simply refuse to work. Will this issue ever be solved?
(For example AltGr+2 is used for the @ symbol. This just doesn't work...)

When will Microsoft stop touting NLB as a viable solution for load balancing? No more marketspeak please, make us something useful or shut up!

At the moment it can be a nightmare to manage User profiles. In most TS environments Managed profiles just will not work. Can MS include some tools in to make profiles a lot more manageable

Just a gentle reminder to bring up the possibility of getting the blinking cursor back as a configurable option. Thank you for this opportunity.

I know I missed your visit, but it would be nice to have them acknowledge when Sysprep will be partition independent. Another words, if Citrix is used to remap server drive letters to respect the connecting clients' C: drive (we all know M$ is going to implmenting this in some form), then Windows 2003 Sysprep should not be resetting the server drive letters to C: and D: every time. Windows 2000 Sysprep did not do this (maybe one out of 100 images it occured).

Building custom menus for user groups does not come easy. This, and locking down the terminal server, cold be facilitated more easily.

MAKE WINDOWS 2000 LICENSING WORK ON A ON MEMBER SERVER IN AN AD DOMAIN~ I really don't understand the purpose of a server not being able to handle licensing unless it's a DC or a workgroup server...sounds like a programming short-cut or something...a.k.a. bug, even if it's ""intended"" to work that way...

user profile is a big problem, downloading and save back make roaming profile useless (with repid growing of the size, it simply just become slower).
MS should spend more effort on this

I agree. Citrix should help out the community on this. How on earth can I deploy a Serer 2003 Citrix 4.0 image to all my machines? We need some help.
