Question : Remote Desktop Services on Windows 2008 Foundation Server

We have a small site with Windows 2008 R2 Foundation Server. We will be getting 5 Remote Desktop (TS) CALS. All of the pcs/notebooks are Windows XP SP3 or higher.
The Remote users will be connecting in to access Sage Accounts.

Our Windows 2003 our users make use of VPN & then RDP. I would like to make use of the new Microsoft techniques for Windows 2008 R2 Server.

Are suggestions how we should  setup the Terminal Services ie SSL Certificate, NAC?
There are webpages that suggest that the Domain Controller shouldnt also manage the Terminal Services - does this apply to Foundation Server?

Answer : Remote Desktop Services on Windows 2008 Foundation Server

Like I said it's just best practice to not install something like a RDS server on a DC. There are not technical limits preventing you from doing it though. You're probably fine doing it in a small environment with 5-10 users. Obviously the license limitations for Foundation server are 15 users. Your RDS licenses are limited to the same and must be purchased in additional to the Foundation Server license. I would recommend using RDS Web Access deployment. That way you're not sharing the desktop of the server with your users.

The above link is all the information you need for installation and configuration.
