How to activate a Remote Desktop license per User/Device in Windows Server 2012 R2? RRS feed

  • If you look at the site, 2012 R2 is clearly not listed yet. And since 2012 R2 does not go on sale until mid-October, I wouldn't expect it to be until then. Nobody should be activating a license server or running the OS in production before then anyways.

  • An if for the testing (the use allowed under the MSDN subscription license)?

  • From the time MS released 2012 R2 on MSDN and TechNet to the time of GA, I'm sure someone did that math and realized that a licensing server left in trial mode would work just fine until they had the back-end bits ready for activation and that wouldn't impact a test lab.

    GA isn't just some fictional date to be ignored. Microsoft originally wasn't going to release RTM bits to TechNet or MSDN *at all* because people seem to confuse RTM and GA and don't realize that means not everything is going to be in place.

    Patience grasshopper.
