Where is the terminal services role in 2008 R2? During the process of migrating the Terminal Services Licensing form 2003 to 2008 R2, step 1 is to install the Terminal Services role. But there is no Terminal Services Role!!!
After much toil and heartache, I found the simple answer…Microsoft changed the name of the Role! The role has been renamed to Remote Desktop Services .
For more information on how to continue this install follow the instructions here . Just make sure to substitute “Remote Desktop” for “Terminal Services”
Thanks Microsoft, way to confuse the masses.
Thinking about upgrading you current DHCP servers to 2008? Worried about the integrity of the reservation tables being carried over? Want to change the name of the server?
Believe it or not, the process is extremely simple to move your DHCP data from one server to another with little to no downtime.

It’s always been possible to extend the C: drive on a Windows 2000/2003 VMware virtual machine (see the excellent blog entry by eGroup engineer Travis Baird here: http://blogs.egroup-us.com/?p=461), but the process has always been kludgy. By comparison, extending the C: drive in Windows Server 2008 ROCKS!
1) You can do it while the server is online (no reboot required)
2) You don’t need a “helper” VM to make it work
1) In VirtualCenter, right-click the VM and select Edit settings
2) Select the hard disk and enter the new size. Click “Ok”
3) Log into the VM with Administrator privileges. Right-click the Computer icon and select Manage
4) Select Storage, then Disk Management
5) Right-click Disk Management and select Rescan Disks. You should see some unallocated space appear to the right of the disk
6) Right-click the disk and select Extend Volume, and follow the wizard. It’s quick and easy, and no reboot is required!
