Can I install SQL on a Terminal Server machine?

A. Several points here :-

1. Microsoft don't "recommend" it for resource reasons. Same as "not" installing SQL on a PDC. Terminal Server is very memory hungry - as is SQL Server.

2. SQL 6.5 has not been tested, but should work.

3. SQL 7.0 is supported on NTTE as long as you install SP1 for SQL 7.
