Terminal Services Roll missing from Win 2008 Server Foundation

I have a new Dell machine running Windows 2008 R2 Foundation. It has the following roles installed.


I want to install terminal services gateway, but when I go to add the roll, terminal services is not an option. Several of the product brochures and website pages suggested it would be an option, but it isnt.

Does anyone know why?

You should look for Remote Desktop Services.

Its not there either. Besides, the documentation on microsoft.com clearly says the role is called Terminal Services. I even uninstalled the other roles, thinking perhaps that theyd made it where you couldnt run TS on a server running ADDS, but that wasnt it either.

Moreover, I dont want Remote Desktop Services. I want Terminal Services Gateway
As document http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744832(WS.10).aspx says, all you need should be in your Foundation version.
You could try to use command line installation: servermanagercmd.exe -query and servermanagercmd.exe -install Terminal-Services. If it works, you could install other TS roles too.

Hmm, dont know how I missed "Remote Desktop Services" when I was fiddling with this before. That is indeed the name. The documentation on technet and other places mistakenly still refers to it as Terminal Services.

Either way, both of your comments were spot on.
