    I have two sites connected by VPN on one domain
    Site A
    2003 SBS and domain controller
    2003 standard running terminal services
    Site B
    2003 standard running terminal services

    Users from site A access site A terminal server and site B terminal server
    Users from site B access site A terminal server and site B terminal server

    Where should I install the terminal server licenses (SBS or the terminal
    server or both)?
    Does the client at first logon or every logon. I'm concerned about the
    VPN being down and site B users being able to access site B terminal server?
    What should be done so users from site B can logon to the domain to user
    site B's terminal server, if the VPN connection goes down?

  2. Questions:
    Technically, if both TS boxes are on the same domain... you should install
    the license server on the SBS box. However, in your scenario it might be
    useful to install 2 TS license servers (one each site)... with your current
    setup the 2nd site would require to have a registry edit so the license
    server can be installed on a non-DC server.
    I'm not sure what would happen in this scenario without a DC to authenticate
    logons (I don't think catched credentials apply here, but I don't know). The
    best scenario would be to add another server as a DC on the site B... this
    way you could also reduce somewhat the VPN traffic.
