  2. Linux Virtual Desktopインストールしてみました

       XenDesktopにおいてLinux VDAのTech previewをインストールして試してみました。  Linux VDAは文字通りLinux OSにVDAをインストールして、XenDesktopサイトで管理およびReceiverとHDX通信を行うためのAgentです。XenDesktopの管理フレームワーク(FlexManagement Architecture: FMA)の中に組み込むことで既存のXenApp/XenDesktop環境にシームレスに組み込むことができます。  ご存知のようにFMAはActive Directoryを中心に.NETフレームワークを利用して制御されています。よってLinux VDAをインストールするサーバーがActive Directoryに参加する必要があります。LinuxへのログインもStoreFrontを介してActive Directoryのユーザーアカウントを利用します。  LinuxがADに参加するにはSambaクライアントを利用することが可能です。この場合 Kerberosの認証を利用していますのでKerberos認証の設定の必要があります。Kerberos認証時のポイントの一つが時刻同期です。ADと5分以上時刻がずれると認証に失敗します。ドメイン参加しているWindowsであれば自動的にADに時刻が同期されますが、Linuxの場合はNTPの設定を行う必要があります。NTPにADを指定することもできます。また時刻同期はNTPサーバーのみにしてハイパーバイザー側との時刻同期はオフにしたほうがトラブルを避けられます。    今回SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop/Server 11 Service Pack 3をXenServer 6.2上に構築しました。複数ユーザーによる共有デスクトップが利用可能です。  インストール手順は英文ですが、以下に従って行えばOKです。日本語環境も動作します。    実際の動作はこちらのLinux Virtual Desktopデモビデオをご覧ください。
