  • Can I install Exchange Server 2003 on TS?

    Can I install Exchange Server 2003 on Windows Server 2003? The customer has a Windows Server 2003 TS and would like to install Exchange Server. Is Exchange supported on a TS?

    Is Outlook installed on that server?
    If so then you cannot install Exchange on it. Outlook and Exchange cannot co-exist on the same machine.

    Never mind the security issues...

    As far as I am concerned a TS server is basically a workstation and should be treated as such. It should not be used to host anything "server" (like Exchange, SQL, DC functionality etc).

      Seconded. It would be very foolish to grant users that sort of access to such a critical server.
