Terminal Server / Mac OS x

By ThysvdW ·
We have a HP ProLiant DL380 G5 server which is running Vmware ESXi 4.0.0.

On the VM we have a virtual machine running Windows Server 2003 Terminal services (2003 version 5.2 R2 SP2). Users connect to the Terminal Server using HP Thinclients.

A few of our users have a file share setup with a "MAPPED NETWORK DRIVE" script, which connects to a share volume on a Mac OS X Server (version 10.5..

Working on the file share is fine, but occasionally the TS server will hang when trying to open or save files to the file share, causing a disconnect of the session, and sometimes requiring the reboot of the Terminal Server VM. This is not a problem for people connecting through Windows XP to the same file share.

It could be a combination fault between VmWare/Terminal Server and Mac, but we are at our end with trying to find a solution.

Any advise would be appreciated!!

Try reposting this using the 'Ask a Question' button. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the two forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Questions' than here in 'Discussions'.

Additional benefits to the membership include:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The TR search function makes it difficult to find a particular "Discussion" or "Question" if it has not had a recent post; the two types get mingled in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.

Seems that it was duplicated (already posted as question as well)
