    Question Remote Desktop Services on FRDC Server?

    Hi, I would like to add the server role Remote Desktop Services to my 2008 R2 server.
    When I attempt to install it, it warns me:
    Installing Remote Desktop Session Host with Active Directory Domain Services is not recommended because allowing users to run programs on a domain controller can increase security risks and degrade server performance.
    Does any one else run this on their main server? Should I be concerned?
    It is years since I have used terminal services - always used to use it on the frdc before.
    We already have HyperV installed also on this server.
    Any help would be great.

    What do you want to do with RD?

    I would like to set up some virtualised versions of Windows 7 for clients to access and also possibly use software deployment services.

    SO you wont want RD on the server - youll want to build a virtual Win 7 machine and allow them to RDP that.

    Yup - don't use RDP for users on your DC! New VM with Windows 7 and plenty of power behind it.

    Thanks for that, very useful.
    Can I run a vm on the dc server via Hyper-V?
    Or will it need to be on a different physical server?

    As long as they're connecting to a different server it'll be fine, so a VM would work. Personally I wouldn't host that on my DC itself, but I don't think there's a technical reason not to.
