Want to run adobe full on a terminal server.  Management is concerned that 3 to 5 people cant access adobe all at once and work.  I think all we need is 5 or so licenses.   Is there a special version of adobe for TM's and dont I just buy licenses and am good to go ...

 Any directions or precautions here  ?

    You have to buy volume licensing

    Q) What kind of licenses do I need to run Acrobat on a Terminal Server?
    A: To run Acrobat on Terminal Server you have to purchase volume licenses. You can not run retail box product on Terminal Server. You still have to purchase a license for every user that has access to the software and the licenses are not concurrent user licenses.

    I do notunderstand the retail box comment.  Can you be more specific on what this means and what I should purchase ??

    Accepted Solution

    Retail box means you go to your local bestbuy, fry electronics and buy adobe from them.  Thats retail.

    You need to buy a volume license

    Look in the lower corner it gives you a phone number

    Licensing and Volume Discounts
    Call 1.800.443.8158 to learn about licensing options or to place a volume order from 6am to 5pm Pacific time. Volume purchasing is ideal for organizations and workgroups; credit card options available.

    Your going to need to buy as many licenses as people you have connecting to the server so if you have 10 people connecting to the server you need to buy 10 licenses, even if only 2 users will use it concurrently.
