Terminal server setup in application server mode

Dear Experts,

On my Microsoft Windows 2000 server, I have configured the terminal server for remote administration.
Currently I am planning to configure in the application server mode (with User CALS).

Please provide me info on the following

1. My Win 2k server is also the my domain controller in the network. So can I configure the application mode for users on this server?

2. If I configure the application mode for the terminal server, how can I do the remote administration (Will I still have my 2 administrator login privileges to do remote administration)

3. Also how should I proceed in buying the user CAL( The vendor info or online download etc)

I appreciate all your help.

1.  Running Terminal Services in Application mode on a DC is not considered best practice for security reasons and performance reasons.  You're best off keeping Terminal Services on a seperate server from your DC if possible.

2.  I believe so.

3.  Microsoft or any Microsoft reseller should be able to do it.
