2012 RDS with 2016 License server RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is sort of a two fold question that i am just double checking on.

    I have a 2012 RDS setup and running with a 2012 license server. First can i have two license servers in this setup, as i have added a 2016 session host and need to get it licensed, and second i can have a 2016 license server in a 2012 RDS setup?

    I am hoping to upgrade my RD connection broker down the road but need to get these 2016 servers up and going.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    >> Yes, you could have two license servers and one for 2016 session host since 2016 CAL could only be installed on 2016 license server.

     

    Reference of rds cal compatibility

    and second i can have a 2016 license server in a 2012 RDS setup?

    >> Yes, you can and remember to specify the license server for 2016 session host.
