Thanks for the invite. I just might need to take you up on that. We'll
have lots of questions. But one big one at this point. How may Citrix
servers are supporting Notes and how many Citrix seats per server?

Re: Domino on 400 with Citrix

(back from vacation)
We use Citrix here. Often it is because you can get a much faster
response time - especially with Notes type applications. Yes, working in
the same building as the Notes servers is cool. Working remotely can be a

burden. And we've spared no expense on our remote networking. Citrix
clears a lot of this up. Since we are between where you work and home
you're welcome to stop by and check it out. Make an appointment with
Chris Edwards here. He's out on his Harley this week. We could even run
you out to the remote plant in Garrett and see with Citrix versus without

Years ago I was amazed how an old 486 PC loaded up as a Citrix client got
a better response time than the souped up desktop used by our PC
technicians. And they were in the same building. I have a laptop that I
take home. I also have a dog of a desktop at home. We're thinking of
removing Notes, iSeries Access and everything else work related from that
one and just using Citrix Client on it. From home I connect using
Ligtel's wireless towers.

We may finally get around to moving our Domino cluster backup server out
of the same room as the primary (a DR plan gone bad). That will move to
our largest production facility. Probably pointing all of the clients at
that site to that server would then make sense. Then again our primary
runs on a 9406-MMA-5461 (aka Power 6 570). Our backup is a 9408-M25-5634.

The backup actually has more lpars - but that's because the Mimix backup
lpar has no Domino partitions - they are in their own lpar. While the
main production lpar on the primary has eleven Domino partitions.
