I have a client who has Server 2003 R2 installed running 2 line of business applications on SQL Express databases, plus Exchange. They have installed a Second server as a Terminal Server to provide access for remote workers. Do I have to reinstall the applications on the Terminal Server, or is there a way to run them from the main server?

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

You can leave the server components on the existing server. The only thing which you need to install on the new server is the client component of the tool. This would be what ever software is normally installed on the users workstation. If it’s a web based application then all that the users will need access to is Internet Explorer.

However, if the applications are not management apps or are client/server apps you may need to install the applications and either configure them or create ODBC connections to the other system.

    also make sure to setup the user's accounts in active directory users and computers to limit the timeouts when they disconnect without logging off or sessions will stay open for days wasting resources.

    Yes, buddyfarr's addition is valid to mention. You'll want to be sure and set the idle timeout so that when user invariably just close the window, rather than logging out, it will log them off after a period of inactivity.
