Has anyone out there tried to use the Mail Merge functionality through JDE
on a Citrix server? For some reason I can't get it to work.

I am not a CNC but here is the steps we do to try and get it to work.

        Procedure to get to the problem:

                Program ID# P08452

                One World Menus:
                - HR and Payroll Management
                        - HRM Foundation
                                - Daily Processing
                                        - Employee Management
                                                - Print Employee Letters

        Error Message:

                Media Objects Error
                Failed to create the object.

We have had three separate calls opened with JDE and they have been as
helpful as ever. If anyone knows anything about this, any suggestions would
be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

g.

I don't know what Version of JDE you are running, but we have the following
set-up. I could almost cut and paste Terry's set-up as ours. It works great
for us.

We run Oneworld XE SP 20.
6 server farm, NT4 WTS w/Metaframe 1.8 load balanced, Dual 733 MHz w/2 GB
memory
        - Through testing we have seen as high as 60 users connected to one
of these servers. It started to slow down then.
        - We try to keep it between 30-50 Users per box.

Deployment server (same specs as Citrix boxes)
RS6000 Enterprise servers 
No - "Thick" clients
300 concurrent users (currently 30-50)
User base is all over North America.

Only the ActiveX console is published to the users.

We have tested and will be deploying the following Citrix set-up by
December.

        Nfuse website for user connectivity.
        Windows 2000 TS w/ Metaframe XPa.
                - This will be done on the exact same servers.
        This will also run with Visio for org charts and Office 2000.
        
All our processing occurs on the Enterprise servers, so there is never that
much processing on the Citrix servers. There is however a massive amount of
RAM and Page File utilization. Depending on your set-up, it is better to get
a lot of ram. We have one server that is only a Single Proc 500 Mhz with 2
GB of ram, and it can handle 30 consecutive users just fine.

Ciao for now,

G.

Hey thanks Terry,

The user stats per server you have mentioned will be a big help.

Were scoping out the project using Win2k, MFXPa/Nfuse.

Ill let you know if I have any more questions.

Thanks again,
Tony.

Tony,

We're in the process of implementing OneWorld Xe.  We have gone "live" with
financials, factory data collection, and procurement at this time, with the
rest scheduled for January.  Let me give you a quick rundown of our setup
and what we have seen so far.

6 server farm, NT4 WTS w/Metaframe 1.8 load balanced, Dual 1GHz w/2.25 GB
memory
Deployment server (same specs as Citrix boxes)
AS400 Enterprise server (Central Objects on AS400)
15 "Thick" clients
250 concurrent users (currently 30-50)
Majority of user base at this location, with some across US and worldwide.

We only publish the OW application with Citrix auto creating the user's
default printer.  We have changed from the JDE default setup (W
environments) which recommends special environment mappings so that very
little will run on the client (in this case the Citrix servers).  We run the
Citrix clients the same as "Thick" clients, many business functions are
mapped to run locally.  Today's servers have adequate resources to handle
this.

At this point I am running one server dedicated to our development team to
use for testing.  They are able to log into the OW DV, and PY environments,
with the remaining 5 servers load balanced with PY and PD environments.  At
any given time there are no more than 2 "Production" servers active.  This
makes it easier to apply updates and rotate the servers.  I recently tested
with only one server active and 40 users connected to see what the workload
might be.  The CPU usage was minimal and there was memory to spare.  Of
course, many of our current users are doing simple inquiry only and I'm sure
that once our sales/order entry is on line, we will see higher usage of
system resources.  From talking with others, we are still planning to get
40-50 users per server.

I hope this helps.  Feel free to contact me directly if you have any
specific OneWorld questions.

Regards,
Terry

Im about to start investigating deploying JDE One World client using a
Citrix farm.

 

Appart from the foot print of the client is this application resource
hungry? Ie CPU, Memory etc...

 

Is there any other gocha's I should know about with when designing the JDE
farm?

 

Thanks
