Chapter 25. Adding a Terminal Server > Installing Terminal Services Role

Installing Terminal Services Role

Installing the Terminal Services Role and its supporting Role Service should be one of the very first things you do on any server you plan to use as a terminal server. Important changes to how applications are installed happen automatically when you’re in Application Mode on a Windows Server computer, and there can be problems if applications are installed before the server is converted to an application server. Our general preference is to run through the tasks on the Initial Configuration Tasks Wizard (ICTW), skipping only the Add Roles tasks, but joining the server to the domain, giving it a name, setting a fixed IP address, and installing the basic features we want on all servers. When that is done, and all the required restarts have been completed, it’s time to install the Terminal Services Role.

Important

Before you can add the Terminal Services Role, you must move the server to the SBSServers organizational unit (OU). This is not automatically done when you join the domain—the server is actually put in the SBSComputers OU. If you don’t move the server to the SBSServers OU, the Terminal Services Role cannot be added without error.
