Terminal Server Support Added to Small Business Server 2003

ActiveWin is reporting that Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 will support Terminal Server (in addition to the "remote desktop / administration mode Terminal Services). This was not possible with Small Business Server 2000 due to the fact that it only supported a single server, and you couldn't run Terminal Services in Application Mode on that server since it was also running Exchange, SQL, ISA, etc.

However, according to the ActiveWin article, Small Business Server 2003 will allow you to add an additional server to your network to be used as a Terminal Server. Since Small Business Server is primarily used at small companies with no local IT staff, I think Terminal Services functionality will be a huge advantage. If it were up to me, I'd replace all the desktops in small companies with thin client devices.

This never has been and isn't the case. The limitation(s) are SBS must be the head of the AD forest/domain, it is in a single domain and cannot have ant trusts or child domains. It has NEVER limited you to a single server, member servers or additional domain controllers have always been a part of the options.

It's possible to add a third party Terminal Server to 2003 SBS
We use Elusiva Terminal Server Pro and it works very well. There might be other products that do this.
