    If I were you, I'd bump the memory up. 2GB for a Win2008 server way too little IMHO since memory is fairly cheap. Bump it up as much as you can (remember a 32 bit OS can only deal with 4GB of memory and all of that will not be available to the OS)

    More RAM as 'cmiller5400' already stated would also be my first recommendation.

    Out of curiosity what CPU is in the server?

    Also, what is the overall server role? In other words you mentioned thin clients and rdp connections. Is this an application server? File/Print server? ???

    Your specs is not ideal for a server. Sadly operation have to suffer. Try replacing with higher specs, adding 2gb of memry wont help greatly..

    With the information presented, I agree add more memory. Also, I would check your terminal services connections and make sure there aren't a lot sitting disconnected. I would also run terminal services via Hyper V so it can be managed a little easier. Need to reboot the terminal server, reboot the Hyper V session instead of the entire server.
