Terminal Services For Mac Os

Jun 18, 2018 A client is looking to have employees login to a remote server and get an instance of Mac OS instead of Windows Server like they have currently on our server.

I don't envy what you're being expected to do.

To do this, you would need either an old XServe, which wouldn't be worth the price and maintenance, or depending on how many end users there are, one or multiple cheese grater MacPro or MacMini systems. Any hardware you have will need to be running VMWare, or at a minimum ESXi so you can host macOS VMs.

The XServe would probably give you the largest number of VMs possible per host, but that model was discontinued in 2009. The cheese graters would give you the second most, and the minis would be the third and weakest.

It might seem like a great idea in theory, but in real life it's going to be a nightmare.

You can use a Remote Desktop Protocol client to connect to a Windows Terminal Server or a Windows PC with Remote Access enabled.

The recommended client software is Microsoft Remote Desktop client. You can find it on App Store, or following the dedicated icon on Mac Self-Service which will forward you to the appropriate App Store page.
