I have three 3 file servers and one DC.  I was thinking about configuring one of the file servers running 2003 server as a terminal server to allow the staff to remote in if needed when working offsite.  Approx. 5 staff would need to access.  I would need to still use the server as a file server and TS.  I am unable to purchase a seperate TS at this time.  Is this possible, any thoughts or suggestions wouild be appreciated.

Thank you

Yes it is possible to run a Terminal server on a file server. Though you would want to hide the disk/partition that has the data on and make it denied via group policy.

Nothing wrong with it as long as it's not a DC as well.  here's agood link to some suggested TS lockdonw policies.

Create a new GPO for Terminal services and add the server to it, then create a domain group for the terminal service users.  Add that group to the Remote desktop users for that server and add users to the group.  Then add that group to the scope of the GPo and remove authenticated users.
