Terminal server – strange behavior
Something really strange just happened, and I can’t explain it. Yesterday I was trying to install Terminal Services on a Widnows 2003 server. I went through the normal install routine, and set my options and everything installed ok. But when I went to view the configuration, it was set to Remote administration mode, and did not prompt me for this before install. I was also trying to install Citrix and couldn’t get past the first part of the installer because it detected TS wasn’t in application mode. I tried uninstalling and re-installing and nothing helped.
Here is the weird part, this morning when I tried doing the same thing, uninstalling and re-installing, this time it worked fine. I don’t even see a mode option in the configuration now and the Citrix setup is allowing me to proceed. I didn’t do anything differently this time, same options and same license server, but this time it worked. I have no idea why, but I’m not complaining, I just hate coming across things like this that don’t make sense and I can’t explain what happened.
