Default Application Mode - how to select???


Hi there

I am trying to setup my new Windows 2003 SBS server to have application mode
TS configuration.

I have tried doing the Add/Remove components thing, and no joy.

I have installed Terminal Server Licensing, and no joy.

I must be missing something pretty basic!

Please help!!

Thanks

There is no "application mode" in 2003. When you install terminal
services via add/remove programs in Control Panel, you *are installing*
what used to be called terminal server- application mode.

Remote administration no longer requires any add/remove programs
configuration; just bring up your system properties and look at the
"Remote" tab.

Hi Laura

Thanks for the response!

I have tried looking in Add/Remove Windows Components, and all I have
available is Terminal Server Licensing, which is selected.

When I right click on My Computer, go into Properties, and click on Remote,
both Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop are clicked.

I can connect to the system using TS Client and Remote Desktop client, but
only for 2 users, which I think is a limitation of the Remote Desktop for
Administration.

How do I switch the mode to enable more than 2 users???

It is my understanding that Windows 2003 SBS can not be used as a Terminal
Server in Application Server mode, period. This is a design decision made by
MS, as SBS is also a DC, and running TS on a DC is a security risk.

An SBS2003 box cannot be a Terminal Server. You have to put a second server
out there if that is what you want.to do.

Bugger!

So to clarify - I would need another Windows 2003 server on the network to
have more than 2 remote users?

Should I be careful about the version of 2003 server that is specified?

Thanks

Yes, you would need another server on the network configured as a Terminal
Server. You could use either a Windows 2003 Server (Standard Edition would
be fine) or you could use a Windows 2000 Server as well. There are
certainly advantages to the Terminal Services engine on Win2K3 over Win2K,
but there is also added cost involved. With a Win2K Terminal Server, you
don't need to purchase TSCALs if the connecting workstations are Windows
2000 Pro or XP Pro. With a Win2K3 box, you are purchasing TSCALs regardless
of the client OS, so it does add some additional dollars.

Hope that helps.

Yup, and yup. Don't use SBS for the second one. Web Edition, either.
Other than that, you're fine. :-)
