TS in application mode 2003 SBS

Posted on 2005-04-24

I spook with an employee of a company that uses 2003 SBS with terminal server in application mode. He said that the ICT company made manual changes to the registry to let this work. Is there anybody who knows if this is possible (and what the consequences are) and wich reg keys should be altered to let this work?

With kind regards,

    It sounds like you're aware that it's no longer possible out of the box.

    I'd have to wonder why you would really want users to be able to access your file/print/mail server just to run an excel sheet or get some email.

    There are a lot of small companies who have a few remote workers who have to work with ts. They are working with 2000 sbs and want to upgrade to 2003 sbs. Except new licenses they must also buy an extra server. I've heard that there are companies who are working with 2003 sbs and ts in apllication mode. I know that you can change the tsappcompat,  the tsenabled and the tsuserenabled setting in the registry. I've tried this and I can enable the application mode and let 5 users work with ts in sbs 2003, but i get mmc errors when I start one of the management consoles.
    Who have experience with this?
