I am preparing to build a Windows 2008 R2 server to use as a TS Licensing server.  Should it be a member server or domain controller.  Currently, I have a 2003 Server DC, a 2003 Exchange Server BDC role, two 2008 Servers running Remote Apps.  I need to ad a licensing server since the 180 days expired for the built-in licensing for terminal services.  I've already purchased the licensing but am unable to install them.  The 2003 DC is currently a licensing server but there are version incompatibility issues between 2003 license server and 2008 RDP servers.

It can be a member server.  I would also use a Group Policy to set the license server name.

You don't have to make the Windows 2008 Server a Domain Controller to run RDS licensing. You should be able to install the licenses without issues
