    The administrator remote login is not working. A microsoft support member
    told me to uninstall terminal services so that I could just administer the
    one login. I did that and completely blew up Exchange running on that
    computer and spent 7 hours fixing it.
    Now that it is reinstalled I am back to square one. I get an error that says
    the client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might
    not be enabled....
    I know it is enabled because I checked it and even looked at users. Help,
    please!!! This is a Windows Server 2003 running exchange 2003 on it. Thank
    you!!

  2. Do you mean that you intend to run Terminal Services (implied: in
    application server mode) on an Exchange server? I would *very
    strongly* recommend against this!
    A Terminal Server is a multi-user workstation. Do you really want
    your users to play around on your Exchange server?
    Moreover, performance will take a big hit, with both the Exchange
    and the Terminal Server services, since a TS is internally tuned
    differently.

    But maybe you just made the (very common) mistake to install
    Terminal Services, while the only thing you want and need is Remote
    administration? That would fit in with what the Microsoft support
    member told you.
    In W2K, you had to install TS to get Remote Administration, but in
    2003, this is already pre-installed. You only have to enable it in
    System - Remote (just like on an XP). When you installed TS, you
    installed it in Application server mode. There is actually a *huge*
    warning screen telling you so.

    The only thing you can and should do is uninstall Terminal
    Services. BUT: this probably blows up your Exchange server again,
    especially if you installed Exchange after you installed TS.

    Still, it's the only sensible thing to do. Install again from
    scratch and do *not* install TS. You will end up with a stable
    Exchange server, with Remote Desktop for Administration.
