Cisco Security Manager Client running on Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit) in Terminal Service

Hello CSM Gurus,

Would there be any performance issues in CSM client software design if multiple instances of CSM client by multiple users ran concurrently on a Windows Server 2008 R2(64 bits) while CSM users accessing the server via Remote Desktop Services ?


In my environment, we have a CSM server at our major data center while security administrators from all over the world need to use this CSM server. 

In order to overcome the latency of the CSM client due to the WAN network, the plan is to use a Windows Server 2008 R2(64bits) as a terminal server and all security administrators would need to access this terminal server via RDP and would launch CSM client on their desktop.  The terminal server locates on the same LAN as the CSM server itself in order to minimize network latency in communications between the CSM clients running on the terminal server and the CSM server.  there would be multiple instances of CSM clients running concurrently on the Windows Server 2008 R2, the terminal server.
