This article describes issues regarding the use of BackOffice Server (BOS) 2000 or Small Business Server (SBS) 2000 with Terminal Services running in Application Sharing mode. Microsoft recommends that you consider the information in this article before you place Terminal Services in Application Sharing mode on a computer that is running BOS 2000 or SBS 2000.
For the following reasons, Microsoft recommends that you install Terminal Services in Application Sharing mode on a computer that is separate from your computer that is running BOS or SBS:
To run Terminal Services in Application Sharing mode, Microsoft recommends that you run it on a stand-alone server (also referred to as a member server), and not a domain controller, a BOS server, or an SBS server; by doing so, this may affect the performance of the server because of the additional memory requirements, network traffic, and processor time that is required by these servers.
Note In a BackOffice MultiServer environment, it is possible to have a BOS server with Terminal Services running in Application Sharing mode. You could set a MultiServer node to use Terminal Services in Application Sharing mode while not using the server applications that were included with BOS. It would be more effective to use Windows 2000, but it is possible to use a BackOffice MultiServer configuration.
