Perhaps you've misunderstood the purpose of eDirectory on Windows. It
provides directory services, but it Windows does not provide any services
(file, print, terminal, etc.) based on having eDirectory on Windows.

That depends on what you have, what you're trying to do, and why.

What are you using now to provide these services?

Re: Integration of Windows 2008 R2-Server into eDirectory 8.7.3


The users need access to a bunch of windows-applications (very specific
calculation-programs provided by insurance-companies and
benchmark-institutes, which generate pdf-files the users need to store
on a login-script-mapping at a netware-server), which will not run any
longer (compatibilty) on the users workstations in the very near future.
The applications are capable to run on windows-terminal-server, though,
so that is why we are looking at it.

Our hope is to provide those windows-terminal-services via the actual
edir-login and not have the edir-login first and a second login for the
windows-terminal-server.

Yes, you've misunderstood the purpose of eDirectory on the Windows
platform. It doesn't have anything to do with providing file service on
Windows. What you should be looking in to is the OES11 products, as an
upgrade from NetWare, and likely looking in to newer Windows clients
(Client2) for the Windows 7 workstation platform.

That's fine too, but doesn't really change anything. Windows Terminal
Server is just a bunch of people using the same workstation.

You need to ask about this over in the client support forums. They have
familiarity with this sort of thing.
