Windows Server 2008 terminal services migration to 2008 R2

Posted on 2012-09-11
Last Modified: 2012-09-25
I have a very small Server 2008 terminal services install with only 5 user CALs.  We only use it for one application for our mobile workers.  I need to move everything to a new 2008 R2 virtual machine and I was wondering the best path to take.  Would it be best just to start fresh on the new VM rather than try to migrate?  Can anyone shed some light?  Thanks!

    Thanks...I have seen these before I believe.  So basically...just move the licenses to the new server and install the RDS role and of course the application to be used?  Do you know if my 2008 TS CALs will work on R2?
