Hi Everyone,

I am planning to install a Terminal Server on one of my Win2k member servers, and have the following queries:-

(1) After installing Terminal Server on my Win2k member server, would it be required to install the already installed applications once again? (this member server is also our ERP server which runs on SQL server 2000 and i would not like to run into any problems here)

(2) Are there any issues which i should take care??

(3) The reason for installing the TS server is for remote clients (VPN site-to-site connection through leased line) to be able to run the ERP package .... am i justified for going for a TS solution or just a remote desktop connection would be fine???

Any other inputs for installing TS on Win2k member server would be welcome.

Regards,
Fadal

Are you going to be using it as an application server or just remote administration?  If you are going to be using it as an application server then the recommended way of installing programs is through the add/remove program applet.  I believe ti would be a best practice to uninstall anything and then install it after you add the TS, but you may not have to though.

Here are a few links that well help.
