"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are 2 'components' to Dynamics GP (new name for Great Plains):
1. SQL Server databases
2. Dynamics GP client (or application)

There is no application server component.

For users accessing the Terminal Server, install the Dynamics GP (new name for Great Plains) application on the Terminal Server.  No 'regular' user should ever be accessing the SQL Server directly.

For administrative and troubleshooting purposes only, the Dynamics GP application is sometimes installed directly on the SQL Server.  But even if this is done, it should not be used by regular GP users.
