It depends on the version of TS you are using. With TS 2008 you can setup a Web Interface server that load balances between all your servers. In 2003, there was no easy way to fail over, except through third party tools like XenApp or manual failover or with multiple DNS CNAME entries (aliases).

I'm looking for a fast switchover if a server fails. this is an internal network with 30 users, uptime is important. This will be a new installation so we'll use the most current TS server. Not sure how to configure the hardware for this.
