2008 Remote Desktop Services in 2003 RWW?

We are in process of setting up 2008 Server R2 to be our company's Remote Desktop Server, replacing 2003 TS server. Here's the problem. We still have 2003 SBS server, with Remote Web Workspace. 2003 TS server worked with it wonderfully. Now, with 2008 R2, the Remote Web Workspace won't show the presence of "Company Application Sharing Server"

Is there anything that I've missed, something I can do, to get that to show up?

You need to "hack" things a bit to get the TS/RDS box to show up:

Thanks, that looks like it will get the job done. I will test it later, since now I had to remove RD services... Apparently BES won't install properly on existing RD/TS servers...

Yup! :)


Install BESx before TS/RDS Role. Note that Outlook can not be installed as part of delivering Office via TS/RDS or TS/RDS RemoteApps.
