domain is made up of a 03 SBS and a terminal server which is a 03 Standard. Need to add 40-50 new laptops for remote users. Remote users will use an application on laptop then send data to an IIS server then update database on the terminal server.
I am aware of a sbs limitation of 75 users and want to know if I will run into performance problems by adding this amount of users to the domain. The chances of all remote users being on at the same time are slim.
Currently we have appx 50 domain computers on the lan.
Based on what I have been told for the software to work correctly I will need additional cals with a SQL component for each remote user so the software will communicate correctly with the IIS server then the terminal server database.
Is it possible to have this solution and not join the extra laptops to avoid the limitation of SBS?
Do I need to possibly upgrade this SBS to a 03 or 08 Standard Server to avoid too many simultaneous user connections? Again the chances of all remote users being on at the same time are slim.
We are piloting the product with several to see if it is what they say it is.
I want to avoid having this limitation of SBS when we decide to implement the rest of the laptops. Also want to budget correctly as I know licensing with Microsoft is not cheap.
