Multiple users sharing 1 xp box Sunray

Hello,

I would like to know if this is possible

sunray(270), software V4.0

esxi3.5 (xp install on it)

After done with the install and configuring VMware-viewagen connect the Sunray 270 to the xp. I want to have multiple users share 1 xp box instead of having to install 10 other xp's.

Sorry English is not my first language

This is not possible by XP by itself. You will have to create other vm's. There are other efficiencies, like linked clones, but they are not in 3.5 directly, like they are in Vmware View. But that is a separate product. If you want to get it running now, you will have to clone the vm for as many users as you need to access them at the same time.

if you only use XP, you cannot achieve what you want, because XP has a restriction on remote desktops (only 1 at a time)

but, there are options to achieve what you want, it will depend on your needs.

you can try this http://www.thinstuff.com/products/xpvs-server/

I have tried it and it works like a charm!! the only thing to carefully consider would be your licensing
