Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

I've finished the day and come home after spending the best part of  the last 3 days getting AG and AAC 4.1.2 installed at a client's site. So after a nice glass (or two) of Bourdeaux.....  What do I think now?

Well given that this particular client has a heavy bias towards Notes due to their WebSphere developers AS WELL AS Active Directory, you wouldn't be surprised to find that they have two disparate LDAP's ?? would you? Mmm..... I'm thinking that something that has been sitting in the too hard basket for too long? 

Anyway so, any idea of getting the iNotes feature to work correctly with calling #<username>.nsf goes straight out the window, doesn't it? So what do we do now? call Notes as a published application? Oh hang on, from 4.1.2 that means getting all this lovely new looking stuff to call a distinctly agricultural looking MSAM Style Access Centre to show the Published Applications? Please give me a break......<sigh>

I can only hope that the much vaunted 4.2 release actually holds it all together and makes it sweet (as well as sweet looking), let's face it they wouldn't have gone to all the pain and bother of creating a WI - SP integration component unless they were serious would they?

I've read at Forbes that some of the benefits are:
Third-Party Portal Support: New access control solutions need to leverage organisations' existing investments in internal portal solutions. The Advanced Access Control option of the Access Gateway extends and controls user access to third party portal solutions including Microsoft(R) SharePoint(TM), IBM(R) WebSphere(TM) and BEA(R) WebLogic(R).

I can only hope that Citrix pays more than lip service to this, if they do they could really make this thing fly, if they don't,  well................
