[THIN] Re: Install Order

This is a lot more than theory, this has been done on many, many servers in
the field!

Your point about drive re-mapping is a good one, you should install
Metaframe first if you plan to re-map, it certainly will break apps if you
try to do it later....

Good in theory, but not practical for a standard install method. What if you
are remapping the drives? This should be done before you install the apps,
so that you can test for application compatility, etc. Citrix do not
interfere with the RDP protocol, so you can still test things using RDP to
eliminate Citrix as an issue at a later date.

There doesn't seem to be an absolute best practise here, but we tend
nowadays to install all the apps and do initial testing with RDP, then
install Metaframe after. This way you can eliminate any issues possibly
introduced by Metaframe (pretty rare though). Also, this way you can capture
an image which can be deployed later by adding it to the domain and
installing Metaframe via script. We like this better because it is cleaner
to install Metaframe anew on each server and join the farm "fresh".

I asked that question too. I gathered from the responses it doesn't really
matter. I installed all the app after MF and my newest 2003 MF server is
cruising along just peachy.

Now I'm rebuilding an older one. JD

Is it recommended to install applications before or after installing MPS
3.0?  What is the best practice? TIA
