No it never was showing up before.

Exactly this advice was given to me before by Dirk-Thomas Brown. But this
would be the very last thing to do, because "Never touch a running
system!!!"; would be to risky if go wrong.

There MUST be an easier way to (re-)publish the Terminal Server's Services
into AD, isn't it? It can't be that hard to say to AD "Hello, here am i" ..

The thing what makes me perplex is that the Terminal Server also (beside
RWWs "Connect to my company's application sharing server") isn't (and
wasn't) showing up in:

  "Remote Desktop Conncetion --> Browse for more. --> Domainname.intern"

neither, even before integrating SBS2003 in the AD-Structure.

The Terminal Server was switched to Application Mode AFTER promoting it to
an AD-Controller and BEFORE integrating SBS2003.

Anyone can help?
