  • Terminal Services is a server role in Windows Server 2008. It provides users with access to

  • either Windows-based programs or a full Windows desktop located on a server. The full features of TS are experienced only on computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, but Terminal Services does support Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 products.

  • The terminal server would be heavy on resources such as memory, processing power, disk space, and network capacity. Multiple clients can connect to the server, and their session will run completely within the server.


  • In the figure, you can see that each client is running a session on the server. This session

  • could be an Remote Desktop Connection or individual application session.

Que. Why would you want to do such as thing?

Ans: We have already seen earlier why we need to use Remote Desktop,


  1. You could deploy the application to the multiple computers. However, if you needed to make a change, you’d need to change each system. On the other hand, if you deployed the application to a terminal server, you would need to make the change in only one location.

  2. Another reason to use Terminal Services is when users need to run separate versions of an application. Some applications can’t run two versions side by side on the same operating system. As an example, Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 can’t be installed on the same system. However, a user may want to run Outlook 2007 installed on their own computers and occasionally use Outlook 2003 by using Terminal Services Outlook 2003 can be installed on Server. So users run both versions.

  1. Start – Administrative Tools – Server Manager–Expand Roles-Add Roles – Next
