Hello Everyone,

I have a windows 2003 server that has crystal reports XI server and sql server 2005.  I installed our erp application client so 8 remote users could RDP and use this application.  Now I know the default is only 2 connections, so I thought I could just purchase the extra TS cals and install terminal services and that would be the end.  Now I found out there are 2 different modes  Administration and Application  Can I install terminal services an go into application mode without an issues with existing software installations?  If not, should this be installed on a separate server?

Thanks,

Bill

It depends mainly on the end user applications installed that are supposed to be used by the remote desktop users.
Some software will continue to work when the terminal services mode is changed to Application Mode, but usually software that is supposed to be run on a terminal server requires to be installed when the server is already in TS Application Mode. Some software will break if a server is changed to Application Mode after the software has been installed.
Note that software on a terminal server *has* to be installed "installation mode", which can be achieved in either one of two ways:
- Use the Add Program Wizard from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel
- Open a command prompt, enter "change user /install". Start the setup, once the setup is done, enter "change user /execute"
