If you need a reason, HIPAA compliance is good place to start.  Second, why
are they not using Anonymous accounts instead?  At least with anonymous
accounts, sessions are separated.

Subject: [THIN] Multiple Users Sharing one Domain Account




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?
