Installing on Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix

Note: This document is a work-in-progress. Check the documentation for Enterprise Developer in the Product Documentation section of the Enterprise Developer SupportLine Web site for its most recent version.

Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix (TS/Citrix) are environments for running multiple instances of a single user product. They are not platforms where a single-user product can be made to perform as a multi-user product.

When running Enterprise Developer on TS/Citrix machine, there might be some implications to components of Enterprise Developer which could cause potential conflicts between a ‘per-user session’ compared to the standard ‘per machine’ setup. The following components of Enterprise Developer require special configuration:

You can use Enterprise Developer with TS or with any Citrix version certified for use with Eclipse; however, a separate end-user license is required for each user who accesses Enterprise Developer, even if it is running on a single machine. See your End User License Agreement for clarification.

Note: Micro Focus Enterprise Developer does not officially support TS/Citrix. However, it will run on any prerequisite Operating System that is supported under TS/Citrix.

Capacity planning

Multi-user capacity planning for TS/Citrix does not scale linearly, and the calculations required for this planning are not directly related or specific to any Micro Focus technology. Micro Focus recommends that you consult with Microsoft or Citrix Systems, respectively, about the server sizing and capacity planning, based on hosting the required number of “rich” Windows 7 or Windows 8 desktops (e.g. using a singleton desktop build as a baseline).

Installing Enterprise Developer

  1. Log on to the physical terminal or Citrix server with a user ID that has administrator privileges.
