For those interesting in getting more details about the Host Integration Server Client, the “Understanding the Host Integration Server Client” white paper is now available at the following location:

It should be posted to MSDN as well later this month or early next month.

This white paper discusses the Microsoft® Host Integration Server (HIS) Client. Topics include the installation and configuration of the HIS Client as well as details around some of the underlying HIS client/server architecture and how HIS resources are located by the HIS Client. In addition, some guidance is given around best practices for the HIS Client.

This is hopefully just the first of several HIS Operations/Best Practices white papers that I will be working on.

Please provide any feedback that you have about this one as we can update it in future versions to incorporate new feedback and topics.
