RemoteApps are really Cool!

As you probably read a few days ago I installed Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V. To get a bit familiar with Hyper-V I installed an complete Windows Server 2008 environment in the last few days. An environment isn’t an environment without a Windows client, so I also installed Windows Vista Ultimate (as a Hyper-V Virtual Machine).

Just for the record : The specs :

BMWIN2K8HV
Role : Hyper-V Host
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with Hyper-V x64
Core2Duo E6600
4 GB Memory
2 x 320 GB HD in RAID 0
1 x 250 GB HD

Hyper-V Virtual Machines :
BMWIN2K8AD01
OS : Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64
Role : Windows 2008 Domain Controller

BMWIN2K8SQL01
OS : Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64
Role : SQL Server 2008

BMWIN2K8MAN01
OS : Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64
Role : Management Server

BMWIN2K8TS01
OS : Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64
Role : Terminal Server / RemoteApps

VM_HZNET01
OS : Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 x64
Role : Windows Client

Yesterday evening I finalized my Terminal Server installation with the result that I now can access my primary (yeah..Newsleecher is my most used App.) applications through TS Web Access. It’s really cool that I now only need a webbrowser (and offcourse RemoteDesktop) to run my applications.

I know, it’s not a really large environment, but it’s running on a single host 🙂 Within the next few weeks I will add more servers so I can expand my environment with some more functionality. The next server(s) will run my Forefront environment so I also have an anti-virus solution available.

    That explains what? 🙂
    If you’re talking about the 5 x Windows Server 2008 installations….they’re installed with serials from TechNet Plus 🙂

    When I have the time and money I’m going to build something like you did, including Exchange 2007 and all System Center products. I’m looking for a machine with a minimum of 16GB memory I think …

    PS Can you now connect to Newsleecher via port 80 when you are at work? That would really be cool!

    Nope…..In the background a RDP session is started (so port 3389 has to be open too). But I’m going to implement a TS Gateway so everything can be tunneled over port 80. Newsleecher is downloading via my own ADSL connection and saving the stuff on my downloadshare at home 🙂 hehe
