Windows 10とXenDesktop

Citrix employee blogs - Mon, 10/23/2017 - 00:00

このブログは、2017年9月に本社の製品チームのFernando Klurfanが執筆したブログ「Windows 10 and XenDesktop」を日本語訳し、一部加筆・修正したものです。

Windows 10は、「Windowsの最後のバージョン」というニックネームが付けられています。この理由は、Windows as a Serviceと呼ばれる、Windowsの導入、展開、サービスの新しい方法、モデルが導入されたためです。

この新たな方針のもとで、マイクロソフトはお客様の2つの主要な課題に取り組んでいます。

  1. PCの入れ替えによるバージョンアップやとOSのアップグレードのために必要なの長い期間。
  2. OSにパッチを選択して適用することによるプラットフォームの非一律化。 これは、Windows Updateに関連する多くの互換性の問題やシステム異常の原因となり、恐らくサポートとテストの部門で課題になっていると思われます。

Windows 10に関する最新情報については、 マイクロソフトのWebサイトをいつも参照する必要がありますが、このことがお客様のXenDesktop環境にどのような影響があるのかを理解いただけるように関連情報を要約します。 まずはマイクロソフトがWindows 10を更新する新しい方法から説明しましょう。

Windows 10 Servicing (旧名 Updates)

お客様の課題を解決するために設計された明確に区別された2つのタイプのアップデート、機能更新プログラム(FU)と品質更新プログラム(QU)、があります。

  1. 機能更新プログラムは、1507(RTMとも呼ばれる)、1511(別名November)、1607(別名Anniversary)、1703(別名Creator)、1709(別名Fall Creators)などのWindows 10の「新しいバージョン」に対応します。 これらはCitrixの最新リリース戦略と同様に、新機能のリリース方式になります。 バージョン番号はリリースの年/月に対応します。
  2. 品質更新プログラムは、管理者がセキュリティアップデートとセキュリティ以外の修正(ドライバのアップデートやOfficeのアップデートなど)を含む累積アップデートを受け取るように設計されています。新しい機能は含まれません。

管理者がこれらの更新を入手するには「サービスツール」と呼ばれる4つの方法があります。

  • Windows Update/Microsoft Update
  • Windows

Retrospective thoughts on 12 months of Titanium ownership

The Iconbar - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 06:48
Last year at the London Show, I upgraded my RISC OS system to a Titanium based system (in my case the TiMachine from R-Comp).

As the London Show is fast approaching, and other people may have similar thoughts, I felt some retrospective was in order...

I have found the machine to be a very stable and fast. I use it as my main RISC OS machine and experience a noticeable feeling of sluggishness if I go back to an older machine. All the software I use (especially !TechWriter and !MPro) work very well. It is a undoubtedly a pricey machine but I have made far more use of RISC OS in the last twelve months. It is a 'proper' machine in the sense you have DVD, SSD and lots of ports.

It is has been nice to see steady improvements to the system, especially the update to RISC OS 5.23, and releases to use Dual monitor support. It is also great to see Elesar updating their software and bringing some 'old' friends back to the platform such as Look Systems excellent font tools.

The big issue for me is the lack of a decent web browser as I spend a lot of time in web applications such as Jira, Trello and BaseCamp. I tried using my Pi3 with VNC for this, but have reverted to my Mac.

As I said, I have made much more use of RISC OS for the 'traditional' uses which it still excels at and very happy at my purchase. What are your thoughts/experiences?

Container Images are now out for Windows Server version 1709!

Microsoft Virtualisation Blog - Wed, 10/18/2017 - 19:30

With the release of Windows Server version 1709 also come Windows Server Core and Nano Server base OS container images.

It is important to note that while older versions of the base OS container images will work on a newer host (with Hyper-V isolation), the opposite is not true. Container images based on Windows Server version 1709 will not work on a host using Windows Server 2016.  Read more about the different versions of Windows Server.

We’ve also made some changes to our tagging scheme so you can more easily specify which version of the container images you want to use.  From now on, the “latest” tag will follow the releases of the current LTSC product, Windows Server 2016. If you want to keep up with the latest patches for Windows Server 2016, you can use:

“microsoft/nanoserver”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore”

in your dockerfiles to get the most up-to-date version of the Windows Server 2016 base OS images. You can also continue using specific versions of the Windows Server 2016 base OS container images by using the tags specifying the build, like so:

“microsoft/nanoserver:10.0.14393.1770”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:10.0.14393.1770”.

If you would like to use base OS container images based on Windows Server version 1709, you will have to specify that with the tag. In order to get the most up-to-date base OS container images of Windows Server version 1709, you can use the tags:

“microsoft/nanoserver:1709”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:1709”

And if you would like a specific version of these base OS container images, you can specify the KB number that you need on the tag, like this:

“microsoft/nanoserver:1709_KB4043961”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:1709_KB4043961”.

We hope that this tagging scheme will ensure that you always choose the image that you want and need for your environment. Please let us know in the comments if you have any feedback for us.

Note: We currently do not intend to use the build numbers to specify Windows Server version 1709 container images. We will only be using the KB schema specified above for the tagging of these images. Let us know if you have feedback about this as well

Regards,
Ender
