This article describes changes to the Terminal Services
installation in Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
When you install Windows Server 2003, you are not prompted
to install Terminal Services; you can only enable or disable connections to the
computer. By default, Terminal Services is installed when you install Windows
Server 2003. When you install Windows Server 2003, the following options are
displayed during component installation:
- Terminal Services Licensing
This option is consistent with the Windows 2000
- Application Server
This option is referred to as Application Mode in Windows
2000 Terminal Services.
This behavior is by design.
A new Remote
tab has been added to the My Computer properties. The Remote
tab includes the options for enabling and disabling Terminal
Services to the computer by allowing or not allowing Remote Desktop connections
to the computer.
During an unattended installation, the entries that
you make in answer files have been changed. For example:
[Components] This configuration determines whether Application Server is
installed. The default is Off.
[TerminalServices] This configuration determines whether Terminal Services
connections are allowed. The default setting is 0 for Windows Server 2003, and 1 for Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP
LicensingModeThis function configures how Terminal Services manages its Client Access Licenses (CALs).
Syntax LicensingMode = PerDevice | PerSession Values
Configures Terminal Server to require that each connected client computer has a valid Terminal Server Client Access License (CAL). If the client computer has a Terminal Server CAL, it can access more than one Terminal Server.
Configures Terminal Server to provide one Terminal Server CAL for each active client session. Default Value PerDevice
LicensingMode = PerSession
For more related information, see "Terminal Services Licensing" in the Windows 2003 Server Help.
Important Setup ignores LicensingMode unless you enable Terminal Server. For more information, see TerminalServer in the [Components] section.
PermissionsSetting=1|0 This configuration determines the Permissions mode. If you
configure the setting to be 1, Terminal Services 4.0 is installed in Compatible Permissions
mode. If you configure the setting to be 0, Terminal Services 4.0 is installed in Windows 2000 Compatible
mode. This setting is applicable only if you select the Application Server option. The default setting is 0.
