Running A 2008 Terminal Server License Server in conjuction with 2003 Terminal Server.
Posted on 2011-04-25
We are a 2003 Server shop, and all of our clients and our large citrix farm uses terminal server licenses from our 2003 AD domain controllers. I have one single application that is going to require 2008 server running terminal services. I notices after installing the TS role that the server was giving an error of the License server version on our 2003 domain controller that it automatically discovered.
This makes obvious sense, and I figured I could just make this one 2008 server a TS License server role as well. Before installing it though I got to thinking how this would affect our current 2003 AD structure. I have fear that installing this 2008 TC CAL server will "take over" and all of our terminal servers would be pointing to this one 2008 server. Would that be the case, I cant seem to find documentation on running both and the application vendor was no help.
