UPD works for us really good.
Do you think we would need another solution for printing e.g.
ScrewDrivers?

For the love of everything you hold dear, please don't use native Citrix
/ TS printing in that environment.

Thank you very much for your input.
We have about hundreds of remote offices which require traveling to
support. I am thinking about consolidation of our 10 farms into one and
connect all remote users to one centralized farm. In my opinion it would
reduce TCO and management would be easier. We were being able to
successfully manage all printing issues and we haven't had any major
issues in the last two years.

I will think about everything you wrote.

The question I always face this one is WHY?

Yes, you can do it, it's not a problem. There are the obvious questions
though:

Do the workstations that they are running have the CPU / RAM to run
Office? If they do, then why put it on Citrix? Centralised management?
New office version? Already have Citrix and want to expand the
deployment as you don't have any way to deploy it easily otherwise?

Does anyone within the organisation know enough about Citrix to keep the
environment stable enough? I know a couple of organisations that have
had bad Citrix deployments and have subsequently called it $hitrix.

Is there any interaction between the applications? Is there dependencies
on word or excel for internally developed apps? Are you still going to
have to maintain some installs of Office locally anyway?

With anything in IT, there are many different ways to answer the
problem, Citrix althrough a great tool in the toolbox to solve problems,
it is also only one way to solve them and there may be a better answer.

My words for Citrix are "Strategic deployment", if you want to use it
for remote access, remote office, thin client, whatever, I always make
sure I know why I am deploying it and the reasoning behind it before
ordering the licenses.

What is the problem you are trying to solve?
