NOTES
1. NEW! Windows Hotfix KB 983533 is required for Microsoft Dynamics GP to be supported with the TS RemoteApp feature in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  Click HERE to review a Hot Topic for more details.
2. It is recommended to have a dedicated Terminal Server/Citrix Server. There may be performance losses if Microsoft SQL Server is running on the Terminal Server/Citrix Server. Therefore, it is highly recommended to have two separate servers. One server with Terminal Server and/or Citrix and one server with Microsoft SQL Server.
3. Refer to the 64-bit, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 Support Matrix under note #7 below to verify all products used are compatible.
4. If accessing Citrix, the hardware and software must be supported according to the Citrix configuration requirements.
5. Make sure processors can be upgraded to 4 processors for Standard Edition or 8 processors for Enterprise Edition
6. The amount of RAM needed depends on the number of concurrent users per Terminal Server.
7. Recommend no more then 25 users per 100 Base T network card, unless a Fiber NIC is installed. If a Fiber NIC is installed, the SQL Server should also have a Fiber NIC installed for optimal network performance.
8. Verify switch is capable of handling network traffic
9. Increased user count may require greater RAM and Processor speed
10. Users utilizing FRx or Crystal reporting via Terminal Services may require increased hardware to increase performance.
11. When you deploy a system in a virtual environment, make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space to avoid performance problems. Each computer that you deploy in a virtual environment should meet or exceed the random access memory (RAM) requirements and the hard disk space requirements. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 897615 Support policy for Microsoft software running in non-Microsoft hardware virtualization software
