A new network will consist of a Windows 2003 DC and a Windows 2003 Terminal Server (member server/ application mode).  What is the best way to set up the 2003 Terminal Server to allow the users that connect to it via the Remote Desktop Client to authenticate to the Windows 2003 DC properly?

Licensing for the DC will be per user and the Terminal Server licensing will also be per user.  Also the Licensce server will be on the Windows 2003 DC.  Although I think with Terminal Server 2003 the license server can be on the same system as Terminal Services.

Thanks in advance.

With Windows 2003 the Terminal server will look to the domain controller for licensing information. You only put licensing on the same machine as terminal services if you are using TS in a workgroup.

Thus install the member server with the required components and terminal services.
Install TS licensing on the domain controller and add the licences as per your requirements.
That should be it.
