hi,

I had SBS 2008, can I set it up as Terminal server too? even I already added a group into remote desktop role.  it still said you must be a remote desktop users group when I try to login  with the user account in the group. any idea for that?

SBS Cannot be a Terminal Server - you need a separate server to run that role with SBS.

SBS has Remote Desktop for two users maximum for administrative purposes only.

I have heard of an SBS hosting a guest vm which is a RDS/Terminal Server.

@Flipp - setting us SBS as a Virtual Server Host will break SBS, so it isn't at all recommended, nor supported by Microsoft.

The only way to use RDS with SBS of any version, is to install a second server, either physically on a separate box, or as a virtual server, but not running in the SBS server itself.
