  • Windows 2003 SBS & Terminal server

    Hi to all...

    I have W2k3 SBS and I need to install Terminal server on it. By default, it can't be done on 2003 SBS (TS only for administrative purposes).

    It CAN be done by applying Transition Pack to upgrade W2k3 SBS to standard Edition, but I wan't to know what happens with 20 CAL's which are additionally instaled on server 2003SBS. Are they lost, or can I instal CAL's again on upgraded edition?
    I have found KB article on MS, but it doesn't states what will be with CAL's after upgrade.

    You need to upgrade the CALs also with those for transition pack.
    TIA

      I need to pay more money for upgrade CAL's?

      It's less expensive to buy W2K3 Standard Edition than Transition pack...

      Can I use CAL's from previous SBS on Standard?

        It should be exactly the same price as if you had bought Win2K3 standard plus 20 Windows CALS. You could add another server in to your network and install it as the TS. Then you would only need to buy the Win2K3 Server license + 20 TS CALS which you need to buy in either scenario.
        Why do you need terminal server? Is it possible that the 20 people you intended to host on TS could take control of 20 workstations in the LAN using Remote Web Workplace (RWW) then you don't need to buy any more licenses at all, providing all stations are at least XP.
        TIA

          I don't need 20 user on TS... There will be 10 at most... The reason is some stupid 16bit app. that is making trouble when running thru LAN (database is hosted on SBS). For some operations it takes about 20 minutes. When they run it thru TS (administrative access thru TS)... it takes about 5-7 minutes . But then SBS and TS problem appeared....

          Can I use CAL's from SBS on Standard Edition..? And make some kind of "reactivation of CAL's"...

          I cant' find anywhere a guide to deploy RWW... But This sounds like solution (a perfect one ). Basically, I need mulitiple users to log on thru RWW, I need to see server and client side HD drives, to use local printer (so they can print remote jobs on local printer)... Everything is done over 100MBit ethernet.

            The best documentation is on the intranet on the server . http://companyweb In the links section you have Information & Answers which leads to http://<server>/clienthelp/default.htm and there you have remote access help

            Access is gained by http://<FQDN>/remote and is installled by default on every SBS setup.
            RWW lets you control any number of computers within the LAN from outside on a 1-1 basis.
