How to Toggle Microsoft Server 2008 from TS Application Mode to Remote Administration

Hi All,

I'm hoping this is an easy one. I'm working out on a remote site and we have a very basic Win2k8 server setup here for DHCP and file and print sharing on a workgroup (no domain). The guy who has come in to set it up for us seems a bit lost and so I'm trying to give him a hand.

He's set the thing up in full Application Server Terminal Services mode and naturally it's now demanding licenses which we don't have. We don't actually need this configuration so can someone tell me how to safely and easily switch back to Remote Administration Mode?

Thanks

I think you should be able to just remove the role services using Server Manager
Once you have removed the Terminal Services roles or Remote Desktop Services roles if you have 2008 R2, just enable remote desktop connections to the server
Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Remote Settings

Spot on. Removed the Terminal Services Role and had to restart. Looks like Remote Desktop connections were already enabled.
