I have installed a new 2008R2 terminal server and would like to install the 2003 fax server client from my fax server. I can get it to install but it hangs when I go to print faxes. If I use compatibility mode for install the install completes prematurely.

I don't believe Windows 2003 Fax Client is support on Windows 2008 Server R2

Ok...well lets add onto this. I installed the client and it errored out. So; I procured a compatible USR Fax Modem. Now when I go to Fax accounts...I have the old server name \\2003faxserver under accounts and if I click add..select modem...I get the prompt about receive mode but thats it...no modem gets installed. If I remove the referenced \\2003faxserver and try to add the locally installed modem again...I get a message that states an error occurred and to contact SA. I have R/R the fax server and print server role 2 times and still no luck. Any ideas anyone?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Sorry ; yes it was. I didnt receive the email that I had a response.  I finally was able to remedy the situation. Do not install the 2003 fax server client to a w2k8 box. It causes problems.
