Enabling Terminal Server Manually

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

If you are deploying just one terminal server, or if you are upgrading to Windows Server 2003, it might be easiest to enable Terminal Server on a server that already has the operating system installed and configure the server individually. You can accomplish this through the Configure Your Server Wizard or through Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. For information about how to use the Configure Your Server Wizard, see "Install Terminal Server" in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003. To enable Terminal Server through Add or Remove Programs, open Add or Remove Programs from Control Panel, or in the Run dialog box, type control appwiz.cpl, and click Add/Remove Windows Components.

Note

  • You can also install Terminal Server Licensing through Add or Remove Programs.

Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration Considerations

If you choose to install Terminal Server by using Add or Remove Windows Components in Add or Remove Programs, a warning appears if the installation will proceed with Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration enabled, and allows you to choose whether you want to proceed with this configuration. It is recommended that you choose No and return to Add or Remove Windows Components and disable this configuration to allow users to browse the Internet.

If you install Terminal Server through the Configure Your Server Wizard, no warning appears. When the Manage Your Server window appears after you have added the Terminal Server role, a message appears that indicates the status of the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration, and gives instructions about how to change it.

For more information about Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration settings, see "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration" in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003.
