Installing Terminal Server 2003 on Windows Server 2003 after programs are already installed
Posted on 2009-04-22
We have a client that is running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition. They also have one other location (1 computer running XP) that RDP into the server to run a database called ACCPAC. ACCPAC and our company manage this server remotely. They have been using terminal services and this was not a problem.
Now, they are adding another location (1 computer running XP) that will need to RDP to the server to run ACCPAC. So, we will have 2 RDP sessions running ACCPAC and will still need to be able to have our comapny and ACCPAC able to remote in and manage the server. So we need to install Terminal server. We have already purchased the CAL's for terminal server.
When we go to install terminal server, it gives a warning stating any programs installed prior to installing terminal server will no longer run.
We will need to re-install the client for ACCPAC after installing terminal server for ACCPAC to run correctly?
How does installing terminal server affect how administrators remotely manage the server, i.e. Symantec Backup Exec, performing updates on the server, maintaining the ACCPAC databse, etc.?
