Install Terminal Services on Windows 2003

By default Windows 2003 Terminal Services is intially installed in Remote Administration Mode as opposed to Application Mode. Below are possible sections/values for the answer file:

[Components]
TerminalServer=ON|OFF

--ON will install Terminal Services in Application Mode
--OFF will revert it back to Remote Administration Mode.

[TerminalServices]
AllowConnetions=1|0

--A setting of 1 will allow connections while 0 will not.

LicensingMode = PerDevice | PerSession

--PerDevice configures TS to require a TS Cal for each
--computer connection.

--PerSession configures TS to require a TS Cal for each
--active client session.

PermissionsSetting=1|0

--A setting of 1 configures TS to be installed in a compatibility mode with NT4/2000 while a setting of 0 configures more restrictive Windows 2003 compatible permissions.

Here's an example of an answer file that will install TS in application mode, configure per device licensing with Windows 2003 compatibility settings.

[Components]
TerminalServer=ON|OFF
[TerminalServices]
AllowConnetions=1
LicensingMode=PerDevice
PermissionsSetting=0

You could save the contents of this to a text file named TSAppMode.txt and run it with the Sysocmgr command line, or the contents of this file could be used in a unattended.txt file for unattended OS installations.

Sysocmgr.exe /i:sysoc.inf /u:\TSAppMode.txt /r /q
