  • Remote desktop sessions license

    Currently we use a remote desktop session to configure a Windows Server 2008.
    But we have some problems using multiple sessions at the same time.
    What is the maximum number of sessions possible at the same time? And how can I allow more sessions? I search't on the internet for extra licenses but I don't know for sure which kind of license I need. Any advise?
    It is for 1 server and 5 users on different locations.

    Hi,

    By default the server is in remote administration mode and will allow two remote connections and 1 console connection.

    You will need 1 server license with 5 client access licenses. In addition to this you will need to purchase 5 TS client access licenses to enable 5 users to remotely connect to the server at one given time.

    You will need to add the TS role to the server along side the TS licensing manager. From here you will activate your TS cals.

    Regards,

    Jamie

        Hi,


        No those are just regular cals.

        These are TS cals for 5 users

          You probably already own the Server license and Windows client CAL's from when you purchased Windows Server 2008. Check with whomever purchased it or with the vendor you purchased it from.

          If you do already have the Server license and Windows client CAL's then you just need to purchase the TS CAL's.
