    SBSe must be a domain co triller and hold all FSMO roles, mist be at the root of the forest, and does not support federated trusts or child domains. Additional DCs can exist though.

    SBSe cannot be a an RDS server. A second server (and CALs) must be purchased.

    RAM and core limits are the same as 2008 R2 Standard edition.
