zcm 2020 on terminalserver

Hello community.

Does someone know, if zcm is supported to be running on a terminalserver? I mean, the zcm agents to be installed on a terminalserver so that bundles installations and associations can be done?

What are the advantages / disadvantages?

Yes, ZCM can be installed on a Terminal Server, but most of the time it is for things such a "DLU", Present a "ZAPP MENU" to launch stuff, etc....

It may be possible for ZCM to tweak/configure some things......

However, Application Installs/Updates are generally not done by users using ZCM since the Terminal Server needs to be in a special mode to allow installs and installs could impact other users.

This link is a little old, but it should give you the idea....

Install Programs on an RD Session Host Server | Microsoft Docs

There is not any reason why you cannot create a ZCM Bundle that would automate the process.....of deploying apps to your Terminal Servers....Could be quite useful if you have a Terminal Server Farm for your users.

What you likely DONT want happening is having end users install apps just like they install apps via ZCM on their desktops....
