I have been asked to specify and quote on upgrading and migrating a Windows 2003 TS, which I think is also a DC, to a new Windows 2008 TS: The environment currently has dumb terminals and the Users have a Desktop RDP icon to log onto the TS.
I have very little experience with TS but I have been reading that running TS on a DC is not recommended because of obvious security implications. This being the case, if the TS is going to be the only server in the environment, is a DC really necessary? The TS would also be acting as the file and print server but it would be more than adequately specified to run these services along with 10 User sessions.
The other option would be to introduce a virtualised environment and have a DC and TS on the same host, if this is deemed necessary.
Any assistance and advice would be much appreciated.
