How to configure a terminal server in an 800xA system
We would like to use Thin client connected to a terminal server.
Which 800xA softwares do we have to install in the terminal server?
How can we connect this terminal server to the 800xA system ? Do we have to connect it as a client or a server ?
Thank you for your help
First of all, you need to install the 800xA Client components on a server grade machine and activate terminal server licence from micorsoft. Then add this node is connected as a client machine to an existing 800xA System.
There are also two flavours of this. This terminal server machine can be a physical as well as virtual machine sitting in ESX host.
The dimentions of terminal server required for this will be dependent on \
- Number of sessions (remote clients) that are needed?
- Intended usage of the remote clients ( fully operational clients or just monitoring clients).
If you need a fully operational clients and if you are using 5.1 FP4 and above version of 800xA, you can also look into Virtual client concept (client machine sitting as VM in an ESX host and accessed by Thin Client).
Further details are mentioned in ABB documentation or please contact supportline.
