Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone can confirm how many Times you can logon with a SBS 2008 Server

In 2003, you had 2 remote login plus the console login in which you could either login at the physical server or RDP with that /console or /admin switch

It does not appear to be this way in 2008 unless i am missing something

Thanks Adam

Windows Server 2008 and later (not SBS specific) no longer makes a distinction between an RDP login and a console login. You get two logins, can be console, RDP, or mixed. And both arte intended *ONLY* for Administration of the server. They are NOT licenseed for application/end-user use...and that restriction holds true even for previous versions of Windows Server.
