I have a tech that setup several offices connecting in to our Citrix
farm remotely.  We were running 6 Metaframe XP FR3 servers on Windows
2000 sp4 boxes.  This tech setup the office users to all use the same
domain account to logon to a published desktop to these servers.
Apparently this use to actually work before we upgraded.
We now run 6 Metaframe XP FR3 boxes on Server 2003 sp1 boxes.  Now when
they happen to logon to this published desktop and hit the same server,
the first session will get overwritten/disconnected.
Can someone help me list out the MULTIPLE reasons that this type of
setup is a bad idea.  And also help me understand why it might have
worked on the old servers and not the new servers?
