Remote Desktop Connection Broker Mixed Mode 2008 R2

I have the following setup / server levels:

RD Licensing -2012
RD Web - 2012
RD Gateway Manager- 2012
RD Session Hosts- 2008 R2

I made the change to the config file that enabled me to add the 2008 R2 RDSH servers apps to the RD Web page.  Everything works fine.

Now I want to add RD Connection Broker but I need to know which version will be supported to manage a 2008 R2 RDSH farm.  I've tried 2012 already and it doesn't seem to  work.  Will 2008 R2 work?  Has anyone done this?

Thanks!

2012 *should* (and does in properly configured environments) work. So if 2012 didn't work for you, it stands to reason that 2008 R2 may not either, since whatever is breaking RDCB would possibly break it on both versions.

I'd investigate the cause for 2012 not working, not just jump ship to 2008 R2 to find out you got the same results.

Sorry, I didn't include in my original post that while troubleshooting with the 2012 RDCB, I came across numerous posts on Technet that state that 2012 RDCB is not supported with a 2008 R2 RDSH Farm.
