  • Question

  • Good day,

    I'm trying to implement skype for business for the whole company. We also want that users on terminals can use at least the chat function, but we are unable to install Skype for Business or Lyncont he terminal server. We're not using vdi's.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi WalterEsch,

    Please check if this license is available for Terminal Server.

    Here's a related thread,

    you will need the "special" MAK pkey provided for RDS/TS installs. You can't use a "regular" MAK pkey nor a KMSclient pkey, when installing on RDS/TS.
    This "special" pkey is available on your VLSC logon (same place you get your MAK pkey and your KMShost pkey)

    The key should be titled:
    Terminal Service enablement for Office 2010

    "

    Best regards,

    Eric

  • Yes, we are trying to use click to run. However, we don't have professional plus, but we have office 365 business essentials and we're installing Skype for Business after the office suit has already been installed.

  • Hi WalterEsch,

     

    Based on my understanding, you need to upgrade your O365 plan to Business Premium which includes the office suit.

    Although you can install the Office on the terminal server, the user still cannot use it since it cannot be activated by using their accounts.

  • We do, however, have the office suit as a seperate license. We already had a volume license for Office 2013 when we decided to move to 365

  • Hi WalterEsch,

    Yep, a volume license is required that install Office on a Terminal Server.

  • But we do have office 2013, as a Volume (MAK) license. We are, however, still not able to install Skype for Business on the terminal server
