Terminal Server Confusion!

Posted on 2002-05-10
Last Modified: 2010-04-13
We have Win2k Advanced Server installed, and have been using the default Terminal Server in Remote Administration Mode.  We just purchased and installed a 5-pack of CAL's, and installed Term Server License Server.  My question is, now what?  Do the clients just connect as they did when it was in Remote Administration mode?  Is there something I have to do on the client side?

Did you convert the TS mode from Remote Admin to Application mode?

Yes, I went through the install procedure, entered my CAL license information, etc...

That just installs the license server, it does not change the mode.  

Go to Control Panel-->Add Remove Programs---Windows Components---->Terminal Services, and change the mode.  The you should be ready to connect your 5 clients.

There is no client side confg.

It tells me that it's already configured to run in "Application Server Mode".

Then you should be ready to go.  The clients can begin connecting.

You might have to modify the users settings in Active Directory Users and Computers, Terminal Services profile and check "allow logon to TS" if it is not already checked.
