comment Terminal Server Licensing (per device) in a dual boot environment: 1 or 2 licenses per PC?
Thanks for your answer. From my experiences with the 2 Linux Thin Clients I know that it can handle storing the license. If it would pull a new one each time we would've run out of them by now. As for your suggestion I'll look how and where linux stores the info as opposed to the Windows registry. Perhaps the file content will offer any insight

comment How can I test from the terminal whether my linux-based system can see a Windows domain name?
When you tried to connect to myfileserver yourself, did you do that with a different user than the one the service operates with? This could be a permission problem with the service user. better double check the permissions for that user and the directory that it accesses

comment Terminal Server Licensing (per device) in a dual boot environment: 1 or 2 licenses per PC?
To be perfecly clear: I am not interested in any legal advice - we have all the licenses we legally need. I just want to make sure I'll not use up 2 licenses with one PC

As TomTom already mentioned this is indeed a technical question. That's why I explicitly mentioned that I am solely refering to the TS CALs and their distribution and not any other kind of licenses. I hate that nowadays everything that sounds remotely related gets flagged as duplicate on here

comment Using our own certificate authority for business email encryption
You're right about the outlook tag, however I've readded "email" as well because we may be using Outlook but our clients may very well use something else. It's a rather universal question about the security implications of using your own CA, the used email client should be negligable - except of course for convenience as you rightfully pointed out.

Sounds good. So you are using it like that in your company, as well? How did the clients take it? Any complaints or troubles on their part with importing the certificates or problems with particularly exotic mail clients?

comment Using our own certificate authority for business email encryption
As far as I've tested with my CA so far, Outlook uses Window's internal certificate store, so double-clicking on the personal and public root CA's certificate, importing them and telling Outlook that it's a trustworthy CA ssems to be sufficient. I could encrypt my test emails without any problems or warnings after that

I share your opinion about PGP. Last time I checked there is no easy way to integrate it with Outlook for encrypting eMails and their attachments in one step, though. You still had to encrypt the attachment first and then add it to the email etc. Combine that with the necessary initial key generation process and our clients (and a few users) will be lost. If you know an easier way, please let me know

Hm, I see your point but if you purchase certificates from say VeriSign you don't have to import the CA's certificate, however you still need to be able to import your own. I guess if they manage the latter, they won't have trouble with the first.

The email client that is used in our office is Outlook 2010 (the users are too attached to their precious Outlook as if I could implement something else). As for the clients, they might have other programs, indeed.

Thank you for your help! I have played around with the mentioned tools and your approach #2 in my test lab and it seems to work just fine.
