Despite my best efforts researching this on-line I'm still confused as to what licenses I will need with this configuration:
SBS 2011 STD with a second 2008 R2 server for RDS via the Prem add on. (I want the SQL later). I plan to setup the second server as a Hyper-V 1+1 with the VM being the RDS host. My thinking is this will allow me to add additional VM's should I need them.
The RDS Host VM is to house an Access 2007 inventory LOB app. The RDS clients are Panasonic thin client Toughbooks running XP Pro. They run 24/7 with 2 or 3 shifts per device. Looking at 7 devices with 11 total users.
Can I do the Hyper-V / RDS with the single 2008 R2 license from the Prem add on or will I need a second Server 2008 license? As there any option to downgrade the VM to Server 2003 with the 2008 license? The XP clients seem to like a server of their own generation vs server 2008.
The XP Pro thin clients only connect to the RDS host so do I need to have 7 SBS Prem CAL's and 7 RDS Device CAL's for them or are the RDS licenses enough?
