  • Monitors.  
    • In Windows Server 2012 using RD Session Host or Windows 8 remoting scenarios can include up to 16 monitors where each monitor can be 8192 x 8192 (with an aggregate limit of 65535 x 65535). 
    • If using RemoteFX vGPU the limits are:
      • 1024 x 768 : 8 monitors
      • 1280 x 1024 : 8 monitors
      • 1600 x 1200 : 4 monitors
      • 1920 x 1200 : 4 monitors
      • 2560 x 1600 : 2 monitors
  • Remote Desktop Licensing Server
    • No hard limits as far as the number of CAL's that can be entered.  Have heard of one RD Licensing Server that had 70,000 CAL's entered on it.
  • AD
    • RDS in Windows Server 2012 does require Active Directory.  The schema should be Windows Server 2008 or above.
