Terminal Server
I have 2 hp terminal servers each running windows 2003, with exchange. Each has a hard drive of 35 GB. We have over 30 thin clients being serviced by these servers . We have now 20 new users and will need another terminal server. Can I use a PC with a fast sata drive as the terminal server. If so what configrutions/changes do I need to carry out?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can. Unless your users are doing something disk intensive then the hard-drive isn’t usually the slowdown point in a terminal server. The amount of RAM in the machine is. The more the better.

Also you’ll want at least two hard drives in the machine setup in a RAID configuration so that if one fails the computer doesn’t stop running.
