I have a Server 2008 Standard SP2 box that I would like to add the remote desktop services role but it is not available.  Is this a R2 option only or am I missing something else?

Thanks

Do they work the same? I am looking to create remote apps for users to use. I have been going thru some training and installing RDS was part of the training.  Do you know if remote application can be done with terminal server or would I need RDS?

Thanks.
