[THIN] Re: FW: [Citrix South Technical] Re: Windows 2000 SP3

Ok, then here is my scenario.  Please tell me if this is a good idea

I have 6 servers now
5 TSE NT4 boxes with FR1
1 Windows 2000 box with FR1
One of my TSE NT4 boxes is the DS

I have setup a new box to be my "control" box for running IMS,Nfuse and for
me to run the CMC from.
I want to move my DS to SQL
I have 2 new boxes to setup and put into production
I want to deploy these 2 new boxes and then take down 1 at a time, each of
the NT4 boxes and reload fresh with Windows 2000.

What is the best way to deploy FR2 in the scenario?

Thank You,

Yes, and yes.  When I was first testing out MF Xpa, I had only 2 servers.  I
install MF Xpa with an Access database, and the DS server would boot just
fine.  The second server had some issues booting up, mainly because it would
take a long time to access the Access DS.  In our production environment, we
are using SQL 2000 SP2 as the DS. 
Much faster boot times, and the CMC loads much quicker.

Would I have to have my DS be on FR2 before deploying the other boxes?  And
by the way should I move my DS to SQL now that I have gone from 5 to 8
servers?

Fresh install, I would put on FR2 and update your ICA Client to
6.30.1050....

I am converting all of my servers from NT4TSE to Windows 2000 and I am
currently running FR1.  I have not tested FR2 Yet, but I was planning on
re-deploying my servers on at a time with 2000 Sp3 installed with FR1 (these
would be clean installs)meaning that I install SP3 on windows before install
FR1. Is this a good choice or should I install FR2 on these boxes as I roll
them out....I have about 7 servers to do.

Windows 2000 SP3/MetaFrame FR2 Notes -

Notices to date -

1).  "Redirected Printing Through a Terminal Services Session May Not Work
with Windows 2000 SP3"
(<http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q328020>)
Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - Q328020

2).  ICA Administrator Tool Bar Disappears after Microsoft SRP1 (not part of
the regular MSFT SP3 install, listed here for reference).

3). Win2K SP3 and FR2 Pass-Through Client Missing (not installed) See
Document ID - CTX015294
Note: If you're planning on installing Win2K SP3, Citrix is recommending
applying MetaFrame XP FR2 before Win2K SP3 - (or follow CTX015294).

4). Uninstalling MF XP FR2 from a W2K SP3 server if the Pass-Through Client
(not being installed in FR2 (#3 above)) is not present, may cause OS
corruption.
