Hi,
We are looking to try and create a Terminal Services server with our 2008 Server Standard.

When we try and add the Terminal Services role, it isn't there.

Do we need 2008 Enterprise for this?
Or do we need to do something else?

Nope, standard is enough? Do you have 2008 R2? There it is called Remote Desktop Services

Could you post here print screen form Roles page, please?

Regards,
Krzysztof

Right :) In 2008 R2 Microsoft changed naming for Terminal Services. Now, it is called Remote Desktop Services. Just add this role, all features are the same :)

Everything with Terminal Services is now Remote Desktop Serices
