  • RDS on Premium Server

    Hi,

    I was wondering if somebody could advise on the following.

    We are currently due to upgrade our network from SBS2003 to SBS2011 Premium 15 users

    So far we plan to install 2 seperate servers (HP ML350p's with 32GB ram, 500GB storage).

    On first server we would install SBS2011 and on the second the premium add on (2008 & SQL) this would run a accounts database on the SQL.

    But we would also like for 3 user to have the ability to use a terminal session.

    So can you enable the RDS role on the second server running SQL and buy 5 RDP cals for it.

    These 3 users would also need Office 2010 or 2013 within there remote session so can office be installed on the second server (do we just buy 3 oem offices to cover this)

    And also as far as licencing do we need to buy 15 SBS STD cals and 15 SBS Premium cals.

    Many thanks for any advice

    Licensing issues aside, using a Remote Desktop Services Session Host as a SQL server is unusual (to say the least), but sure, it's possible.

    Just don't install any software on the server until after you've added the RDS Session Host role.

      to run office on a termin al server (which RDS essentially is) you can't use OEM- - you have to use open licence, if i understand correctly
