BES on 2000 server in terminal server applicaion mode

Will bes function correctly on a 2000server running terminal server in application mode.  Rim states unpredictible results may occur.  If this is the only other server i have besides my 2003sbs r2 server which i do not want to install it on, is there a way to get it to work on my 2000server?

IF RIM says it is unpredictable, then I would believe them.

How many users ?
If < 15uBES express version on your SBS server, if more then you will need another server.

I hope this helps !

Whoops,

if < 15 users, use the  BES Express on your SBS.

so you think its a safe install to put on my sbs that hosts my exchange and sql?  its have max ram of 4gigs and 2 cpus. blackberry use is going to be 1 user for now and i cant see getting more then 3-4 total eventually.  mail box usage is about 15 users and connectin to sql is about the same.

Unless your RAM and CPU are already taxed, then a BES server for a few users should not be a big  issue.

The only downside is that if/ when you upgrade, you will need to take down the server for scheduled Maint.

 I hope this helps !

cpu is fine, ram not so sure. sql takes it when it needs it and i can tell you it is swapping.

That could be a concern.

I would see if you can use the /3GB switch or /PAE to get more usage of the 4 GB RAM, since without that, it may only be using 2 GB

You may simply have to try it and see how much performance is affected , if at all.
