comment OpenJDK installed but libjli.so not found centos 6
Used cd /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf; ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-armhf/lib/arm/jli/libjli.so; ldconfig on an ARM device (Pelya's Debian android app, which creates a fakechroot Debian environment on an unrooted phone). This made java work for me.

comment Remote Desktop Services Licensing - Does server have to have a RDS role?
Is there any way you know of to disable that added functionality from the RDS role?

comment Remote Desktop Services Licensing - Does server have to have a RDS role?
I would have wholeheartedly agreed with that statement coming in to this. I would have assumed the only difference between the two was the licensing aspect; but as @Brent points out, there is some other functionality added when the RDS role is put in place, in contrast to the the out-of-box RDS. It would be nice for MS to call the out-of-box system something like "Administrator Desktop" or something similar, to emphasize that there is a difference; but I digress.

That totally makes sense. I had initially assumed that the "RDS role" functionality and the out-of-box functionality were identical, except for the licensing aspect. @Brent explains that there is more to it than that. After the performance decrease, I had a hunch about that, but didn't have enough RDS server experience to know for certain.

comment Remote Desktop Services Licensing - Does server have to have a RDS role?
Great answer-- exactly what I was looking for: thank you. "I'm assuming that the performance problems exist even with just two users" That's the thing I found weird: the app performance issues didn't exist before I installed the RDS role. +1 for "Either way, RDS transforms the way the server handles user sessions..." Logically, then, that could be the reason.

comment Remote Desktop Services Licensing - Does server have to have a RDS role?
+1 "I'm pretty sure the answer is no". This is my gut instinct as well from searching the net and MS forums but I want to validate this with people who have experience installing the RDS role in 2008, before I bring the answer back to my employer. It is a bit counterintuitive to me to have Remote Desktop available out of the box as a service, and then require a seperate "RDS role." It's evident this is done to allow headless administration, but it can still be confusing.

comment Remote Desktop Services Licensing - Does server have to have a RDS role?
Thanks for your quick answer. I had already stated that pre-role, the app was operating more quickly. It was the only change made. Is the RDS role inherently slower or memory-hungry than the built-in system? Also, I'm not asking for legal advice or specifically about the licenses themselves. Just if there is any way of installing them if we were to call MS and purchase them. I stated pretty clearly that I intend to purchase them; this is a technical question only.

Cool! Restarting network or just the interface often helps.

Does the Win7 machine have a built-in crossover or are you using a crossover cable? Also, where did those other routes come from? 10.1.1.0 and 169.254.0.0. Perhaps you should try deleting those and work on the internet connectivity first. Unless they are allocated in /etc/network/interfaces I think ifdown eth0 and then ifup eth0 should clear them.
