  • RDS and Licence Server in the same server

    Hi there.

    Recently we got a server installed in our network for a special purpose service, this service has to be accessed locally, as the service works with terminal services we think in configure this service and allow the required users to access the service remotely.

    So we went and purchase 10 CALs (with just need 6) for this, now I'm wondering if we can enable the role of remote desktop service and also remote desktop service license in the same server instead of a specif server just for this?

    PD: I'm searching Google Right now and I couldn't find any information about it

    regards

    AFAIK there are no problems with the license server also being an RDS server - I have not tried it in 2008R2 but had no problems in the past with 2003

        Done it in 2008 R2 and 2012 with no issues having the 2 roles on the same server.
