Add Remote Desktop Services role to SQL Server 2008 R2 server?

Hi all,

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 server that has SQL Server 2008 R2 installed on it.

I now need to install the Remote Desktop Services role on the server to allow users to connect to it.

Am I going to run into any problems or break the current SQL Server 2008 R2 installation?

Thanks for reading.

Can't imagine any issue.

TS are installed by default with 2 (admin) licences, so you can already test it... However, RemoteAPP or advanced RDS stuff need a CAL for any user connecting your server.
