hey all, need to setup some sort of fault tolerance for the RD LICENSING MANAGER role in my environment
we want to create another server at a different site for fault tolerance,  but not sure how i should be setting this up
i was told this service is not cluster aware and that i should setup another instance of the role on a different server at a different site and not activate it.
not sure if thats correct or if there is anything else i need to do?

Well, you can bring up the second server and activate it, just don't install any codes on it, and don't point to it.  Point your RDS/XA servers at the "primary" server.  In the event of a disaster, you can install the codes on the "backup" server and reactivate them.

The redeeming part is that when a RDS License is not available, the system will give you 71-89 days grace period to get it back in shape, so it's not a critical rush.  

Just do not lose those install codes! If you have to replace them, the Clearinghouse will ask for them..
