Setting up a terminal server outside of the domain - sage 200
Posted on 2013-12-11
I have a client who has a Foundation Server 2012 as a DC running active directory, which is a fairly new setup and I am trying to get round having to migrate it to Server 2012 because of the restrictions of 15 client access licences. The client has just requested a terminal server setup running sage 200 with SQL which will be accessed by 10 users from multiple external and internal sites.
My plan is to setup a standalone TS server with server 2012 running as a DC, which will reside on the foundation server network with a static IP. Then all users will RDP into this server to access sage 200, and any additional data transfer between the 2 domain can be done via a mapped network drive with a username and password assigned.
I am aware this is not the perfect scenario as there will be 2 lots of active directory to manage but can you see there being any other issues I may run into with this setup??
