your password is like a condom - you don't share it, you change it
regularly; and its best to avoid reuse.

The reason why it worked on 2000 and not on 2003 is that it's most
likely Terminal Services Configuration is set to restrict each session
to one session on 2003.


Users reconnecting to disconncted sessions that are not theirs is reason

        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?
