Can we run Terminal Services on SBS 2003? Are there any other issues that we should be aware of?
While you can use Terminal Services with SBS and can make a SBS server a TS License Server, SBS does not include Terminal Services on it outside of Remote Administration Mode. You'll need a separate box. Although this does allow Microsoft to sell more servers, it's actually a pretty rational decision. It's never a good idea to run Terminal Services from a domain controller and that SBS server has a lot of jobs as it is.
