Hello Everyone,

I am adding Terminal Server Licensing to an existing Windows 2003 Server sp2 and when it goes through the installation it is asking me for Service Pack 2 CD-ROm, to install the lserver.exe.  I did not have the cd, so I down loaded it from microsoft.  The cd does not have the "i386" folder it is just a large exe file, so I am not sure how to go about installing terminal server licensing.  Should I use the orginal cd and then re-install sp2 again.  Is there away to extract the "i386" folder out of the large sp2 exe file.

This is the first time I am setting up terminal server and any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Bill

This must be one of the most misleading dialogs ever ...
What the wizard actually wants is an OS installation source with an integrated SP2. You don't need to create a CD, you can just point the wizard to a (networked) folder with the slipstreamed version of W2k3. This article is for SP1, but it's the same for SP2:
Windows Server 2003 SP1 Slipstreaming
