Format: Paperback
My memory of reading various Microsoft Resource Kits mostly consists of dry, highly technical and not very accessible content. I mean a Resource Kit isn't something you read, it's something you refer to and look up facts in.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it's very accessible, clearly laid out and really covers not only the technical ground but also the business case for each of the additions to TS in Windows Server 2008. Sizing hardware for a terminal server is covered in detail as is the comparison of a 32 bit or 64 bit platforms. Profile management, locking down TS servers and licensing is all covered. New features in TS 2008 are covered in great detail, the Session Broker is explained, TS Gateway and TS Remote Apps are fully taken care of as is Easy Printing.
Interspersed in the regular text are short sections where particular technologies are thoroughly explained by various members of the TS team at Microsoft and they too make interesting reading.

All in all this is a must have book for anyone tasked with running a Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services Server or farm.

This book is a very well laid out and pretty comprehensive compile of all the various items needed to plan, scale, configure and manage a Terminal Services infrastructure. Before this book, most of this material was scattered throughout whitepapers, Knowledge Base articles and in the tribal knowledge of people who work with the product. Thanks to this book, its all provided in one place in a very easy to find manner (especially when you take into account that there is a searchable soft copy of the book on the accompanying CD) This book gives people from the neophyte level to seasoned administrators a easy to use resource to understand and reference.

This book was an excellent resource for learning the new terminal services features in Windows 2008.

I have been running terminal services and citrix for a decade now, but had not kept up with the new features in 2008. This book quickly gave me the information I needed to design an environment for a new project one of our teams wanted to implement.

Despite the name, this is more of a book to be read than strictly a reference like many other resource kits. The 500 pages went quickly and proved very useful.

This is a really good book to have if you are, or plan to work with terminal services on windows 2008.
It does a good job of explaining all the new features of win 2008 such as easy print, ts gateway, distributed apps, etc...
It actually goes in depth with a lot of things such as API, Classes, and other things you can use to control and tweak you TS sessions.
It explain the memory allocation, Io, session Broker, etc...
There is also a bit of history of where the TS services came from.
The good thing about this book is its really well structured so you can easily find what you are looking for whitout scrolling the entire book.

This is a really good book if you are looking to take you TS knowledge to the next level.

Deep inside of all new features provided by this new Role in Windows 2008.

History of Terminal Services since the beginning for better understanding of this service.

If you are new to Microsoft Terminal Services this book is a must have, even if you're not new you should read this book to understand the new features of Terminal Services in Windows 2008.

I enjoy reading it.

Best Regards,
