    Can you deploy Term Serv in app mode on 2003 Server? I believe you could not
    on 2000.

    it isn't technically labeled 'application mode' in 2003, but behaves that
    way as in 2000 application mode
    2000 has application mode for users to connect and run terminal applications
    and remote administration mode for up to 2 administrators to manage the
    server remotely. remote administration mode doesn't need license server,
    but application mode in 2000 and terminal services in 2003 does require a
    license server.

  3. hi madison!

    yes you can do so with win2003.
    but nlb is the preferred possibility. so you can implement load balancing
    and improve your speed on the terminal servers.

    Thanks to both of you. I believe my question was still vague. It is my
    understanding that with W2k server, you could not run TS in app mode on a
    cluster server.
    Can you run in App mode on a two node cluster (active,passive) with Server
    Sorry about the confusion.

  5. I guess the real issue here is why do you want to use MSCS when you can use
    NLB? MSCS will run considerably more for licensing and hardware, and
    Terminal Services has been well documented and works very well on NLB.

    Is there some business reason for having Terminal Services on a server
    cluster instead of an NLB cluster?
