Did some searching, and found nothing in the way of bad news, but I have some bad memories of x64 based systems form the 2003 timeframe (mainly xp x64) and was curious if anyone here had any experience with 2003 x64 and Terminal Server. I am preparing to build a term server using 2003 r2 std. edition (It's what I have on hand), I have 16 gb of memory installed right now, and would like to keep it, so I need the x64 version,and need to know what the consensus is.

Any horror stories guys?

Most apps in 2003 are not as 64bit friendly as 2008.

How many users to you expect to have on the server, that you'd require 16GB?

This gives some guidance on Ram requirements on a TS.

That was very helpful, the article gave me more info on how to figure scaling of the server. I have a server that has 16gb installed, From the looks of things I may not need that much memory. I could install 2008 -non R2 I have an available license for that, just need to track down install media for it. My existing TS-licenses are for a 2003 farm though, I need to look that up.

I suppose a straight 2003 R2 edition would do the trick too. I may just downgrade to that to avoid any issues with my TS CALS.

and for the record, no more than 30 users or so. I would classify them as structured process users for the most part.
