    Hello everyone,
    I am currently trying to setup a thin client environment, I have spent a long time getting my head round server just need some help with what im gonna need to do next.

    Server Setup:
    Processor: AMD FX8150 @ 4.2GHz with 128Kb L1 8MB L2 and 8MB L3 Cache
    RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
    Hard Drive: 2.7Tb Main Drive, Two 250GB drive and a 60GB SSD
    Graphics Card: One 3GB NVIDIA GTX 580
    OS: either Server 2008 or 2012

    Thin Clients
    Two HP T5720's

    The use of the thin clients will be simple tasks such as web browsing, looking at emails. The most taxing task they will have to carry out is watching YouTube videos.

    So what I want to know is which Server OS is best to use, which Virtulization software would be best to use and how would I configure the Thin Clients to boot directly into the Virtual Desktop.

    I know this is a lot to ask but any help would be deeply appreciated. Thanks! :biggrin:

    sebus or 100 may help you more on this topic but I think MultiPoint Server 2012 is best for this purpose.
