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.
