AdministeringWindowsServer 2003Remotely
hereare several methods by whichsystem administrators can manage the ITenvironment’s server resources. Though it ispossible to manage each server locally,managing these resources remotely cangreatly improve productivity. Remoteadministration reduces the administrativeoverhead required to manage servers in anysize IT organization because it provides theflexibility for administrators to be centrallylocated while managing distributed serverresources.Windows Server 2003 provides the toolsnecessary for administrators to perform avast array of management functions onremotely located servers. Server applicationand operating system upgrades can beperformed remotely, as well as domaincontroller promotion/demotion and diskdefragmentation.This chapter describes the tools available foradministrators to manage Windows Server2003 servers remotely and provides bestpractices for leveraging remote administra-tion features.

Using Remote Desktop for Administration
Remote Desktop for Administration is one mode of the Terminal Services built into WindowsServer 2003. Terminal Services can be enabled in one of two ways:
Terminal Server mode. This is the Application Server mode that was available in Windows2000 Server.
Remote Desktop for Administration. This is an enhancement of the RemoteAdministration mode of Windows 2000 Server.This second Terminal Services mode is used to administer Windows Server 2003 servers remotely.Remote Desktop for Administration provides remote access to the graphical interface–based toolsavailable in the Windows environment. Remotely managing servers with Remote Desktop forAdministration does not affect server performance or application compatibility.Unlike the other terminal service mode, no terminal server Client Access Licenses (CALs) arerequired to use Remote Desktop for Administration. Windows Server 2003 provides two remoteadministrative sessions, for collaborative purposes, and a console session.
Enhancements to Remote Administration with RemoteDesktopConnection
Bytaking advantage of the new Terminal Services client, known as the Remote DesktopConnection (RDC), remote administration is enhanced in Windows Server 2003 in several ways.TheRDC supports a wide selection of hardware devices, so servers can be managed remotely fromseveral different types of client hardware. The RDC is supported on the following hardware types:
16-bit Windows-based computers running Windows for Workgroups with TCP/IP.
32-bit Windows-based computers running every Windows OS from Windows 95 toWindows Server 2003.
Windows CE-based handheld devices.
Windows CE-based terminals, or thin clients.The RDC allows for automatic restoration of interrupted network connections. This is key forremote administration. In the event that an administrator is disconnected in the middle of amission-critical operation, the RDC will reconnect the session without losing the administrator’splace in the operation.The RDCsupports a great deal of customization for the look and feel of a remote session. Providinghigh color, audio, and full screen sessions, the RDC allows you to control the graphic options andconnection speed. This is an important feature because as you connect remotely to servers over aslow WAN link you will want to throttle the bandwidth usage for those particular sessions.One of the biggest improvements to theRDC involves client resource redirection, which is avail-able to Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP. You now have the capability to access local drives,network drives, and printers through the remote connection. Cut and paste, as well as large filetransfers, can be accomplished between the client and server in a remote administration session.
