Have you got the habbit of doing RDP to the server and launch tools like SSMS and run scripts ? If your answers is ‘YES’,then it would be good to avoid doing that and follow the below best practice :
It is a good practice not to RDP to a Production server,open SSMS and other tools like Visual Studio and start working on it.
Resources like Memory and CPU is required to use these tools and is not recommended in a production server.
As a best practice always launch SSMS from local box to connect the instance and work on the same.
Of course RDPing to server (production or otherwise) requires a desktop manager of some sort. Since the introduction of Windows server core I don’t run SQL server on anything else.
