Administering your InfoPrint Manager server using a Windows Terminal Server client

While you can do most administrative tasks using the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI, there are a few that you must do using the Management Console. However, since the Management Console must reside on the system that your InfoPrint Manager server is installed on, performing those tasks can be inconvenient. The only way to perform administrative tasks on the Management Console on a different system is to use a Windows Terminal Server. On Windows, Terminal Server capabilities are included in Windows Server editions. Therefore, you must install your InfoPrint Manager server on a supported Windows Server edition, not on a Windows non-Server edition.

Once you have InfoPrint Manager installed on the correct version of Windows, you need to install the Terminal Server Client on any other systems that you want to be able to access the Management Console from. You can install the client on one of these systems:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2012 Standard
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

Use the Installing the Windows Terminal Server client procedure to create installation disks and install the client.
