Hey All - we tested out RDS services with the trial licenses on a Server 2008 instance, and we passed the trial.

However now we have purchased some CALs but wish to configure the server on a 2012 server instance.

If we apply our licenses to an RDS licensing role on the 2012 server, can the 2008 server function using these licenses or do we need to forget about 2008?
