No, there is no Terminal Server on SBS 2003.  It was removed after SBS 2000.  You will find no option anywhere in SBS 2003 to enable Terminal Services.  You have Remote Desktop and Remote Web Workplace but no Terminal Services.

If you have a another member server that you want to use as a Terminal Server, you can manage the Terminal Server licensing from your SBS 2003.

Hey,

What error are you receiving?? You don;t need any CAL's to contact the server at the first place.. CAL's are only needed for users that need to contact the Terminl Server after 3 month (when the evaluate version expire).

Also, you are saying you have SBS are you trying to make this one machine your TS?? I would stronly disadvice you to do this, install a new meber server and create that as a TS server. Also, CAL's can be installed on a per user or per device way. Make sure to install the server in the same way as the licensen are bought. If your server is in a per user license and your server on a per machine, you are not licensen correclty and will have isseus when working with TS

I mean, yes you can but i would stongly advice you not to do this.. This would mean you have users that log in to your Domain Controller. This is very very bad practice... Technically it is possible Unfortenately..
