Add Terminal Services to Exchange Server 2003

  I am trying to consolidate servers. I have a Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition running Exchange Server 2003. It is a member server. The only thing this server does is handled Exchange for 14 users. That is it. It is not a print server, data server or anything else.

   II want to install Terminal Services on it to let a mere 5 users have access to programs running on other servers. Today I went to add Terminal Servives to this Exchange Server and got a big warning about how none of the programs I currently have installed on the server will work any more.

   With the exception of Exchange there arent any programs installed on this server. Will adding Terminal Services trash my Exchange in any way?

I had use Terminal Services role on server 2003 enterprise with Exchange 2003. It works but system resource is very low. If your server has a lot of free processor and memory resourses - I think no problem. Also check users security - never give them Administrative or Power users right - check security on Exchange folders

Its posible but strongly not recomended.

Thanks morpheious. I think you are right. Since is is just a 2003 Standard I am limited to 4GB. I might be doing something I really don't want to do :)
