Migrate Windows Server 2008 RD TS/RDS Per Device CALs from a 2008 r2 RD License server to a 2012 RD License server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to migrate my 2008 r2 CALs from current Server 2008 r2 to a Server 2012 RD License server.  Will the Migrate licenses Wizard in 2008 r2 Licensing server work for this or is there another process that I will have to use?

  • Hi,

    You would use the Migrate licenses wizard on your Server 2012 RD Licensing server.  You should have your license numbers, authorization numbers, email confirmations, etc., handy in case you need them.

  • Hi TP

    Thanks for the response.  Just so I'm clear I will be using the 2012 Migration wizard on the new/target RDS license server and not the current 2008 r2 license server correct?

  • Hi,

    Yes, that is correct.

  • I have a 2008 license server with 2008 licenses that I need to migrate to 2012 servers and also provide some kind of fault tolerance in case one license server goes down.  I want to split the licenses since we can't have the same number of licenses on both servers.  Do you know if the existing licenses can be split during the migration and be placed on two different windows 2012 license server as per Microsoft best practice?
