Transfer Some RDP licenses from Server 2003 to 2012
Posted on 2013-12-05
Sadly, I really know nothing of this so really need pretty explicit instructions..
We have a new server computer we haven't started using yet, because we haven't been able to figure out how to get remote desktop licenses on it so we can log in remotely. This server runs the windows server 2012. Unfortunately, since we couldn't figure out how to set that up, it's now been X number of days and the grace period has expired and we can no longer remote in.
So, we have another computer that we're using and it's a windows server 2003 computer. It has quite a few licenses that we own on it. The documentation windows has is very confusing and I am not sure.. but it seems to imply I can migrate some licenses from the other server over to the new one. But I can't tell if I have to do all of them (which can't work for us, we still need our other server to work!) or if maybe I can migrate like, 5 of them?
Is it possible to move some licenses from the old server to the new one and if so, exactly how do I do it?
Thanks so much!
