RDS 2012 and RDS server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a server 2008 R2 RD web running now in our domain (intranet only)

    I will be adding a 2012 R2 server to run RDS

    My question is can I keep the 2008 R2 RD web running as I start the install of server 2012 R2 RDS at the same time in the same domain?

  • Hi,

    Yes, you can keep Server 2008 R2 RDWeb running in same domain and add new Server 2012 R2 RDS deployment if you want.   For Server 2012 R2 you will need to use 2012 R2 RDWeb, broker, licensing, RDSH, etc.

    In the future if you want to consolidate some could point your 2008 R2 servers to 2012 R2 RD Licensing and use 2012 R2 RDWeb for your 2008 R2 servers.
