I have a SBS 2011 Standard that i want to use with RDS. I have installed the required user roles and CALs. But it does not work.

After a little sesearch I saw that I needed SBS Premium add-on.

How do I implement the RDS host service on the SBS 2011 Standard without installing a secondary server?  I want to be able to use RDS on the same server.

    the remote desktop services role is not supported on SBS 2011 (or 2008) it also could break some things. So you need to add a second server for RDS
