We are trying to migrate from Zimbra 5.0.13 to Zimbra 6.0.1 over OpenSuse 11.1. We'd like to test for several features, among them:
Synchronization of global contacts across three domains.
Syncrhonization of tasks.
Ability to use Zimbra Desktop within a thin client/terminal server environment for multiple users.
Email Archiving on the terminal server w/Zimbra Desktop (1Gig,5Gig, 10 Gig, 15 Gig, 20 Gig)
Calendar sharing across three domains.
Synchronization of personal contacts to end users pda device - nice to have
The problem we are running into right now is that Zimbra Desktop can only be used by one user at a time in a Thin Client environment. It cannot be launched by multiple users without needing to be reconfigured. Is there any workaround to this? I'd like to know what options I have so that we can begin pursuing this quickly.
Any feedback/input is greatly appreciated.
As a follow up to my original post:
Zimbra 6.0 has been installed over OpenSuse 11.1 on one of our test servers. The objective is to upgrade from version 5 to 6 and have it deployed in for our Windows Terminal Server (Enterprise Edition 2003). Here are the issues we are currently running into:
• We are trying to get Zimbra deployed within a multi-user environment. While we can run several instances under different profiles at the same time, the jetty (java) instance loses connectivity after a few seconds and dies out. In order to get Zdesktop to re-launch, another java instance has to be executed.
• All end-users are able to launch Z-desktop only if they are part of the Administrators group. Is there a way whereby they can do this without having such privileges? (This is also within a Terminal Server setting).
• We also need to be able to perform local archives for mailboxes on the Terminal Server (for 20-30 end users).
