Removing a terminal server from the domain
Posted on 2012-09-16
Hi All, I currently have site with an SBS2008 server that has been used primarily for email (Exchange) and printing and is the ADC. I also have a terminal server that is a member of the domain. We no longer need the SBS Server. As a result, I have two options, make the Terminal server an active directory controller, or remove the terminal server from the active directory to a workgroup. Everything I have read suggests against promoting the terminal server to a domain controller due to security risks. The server is used primarily for remote access. Only two users access it locally. Do you see any problem with removing the Terminal Server from the from the domain and running DHCP on it?
