comment Do I really need MS Active Directory?
Hardware and software cost is certainly an issue. However he cannot have his terminal servers act as Domain Controllers due to the fact that users not in the Domain Admins group do not have rights to log into a Domain Controller. This would be a major security issue if it were not so. It is possible to grant login rights on the DC to other users but is Not Supported by Microsoft in my experience.

comment Windows: Can domain controllers also serve other functions?
Anything that a User must log into (he mentioned Terminal Services) cannot be on a DC unless all users are members of Domain Admins.
