Hi,

I have a client who has a Foundation Server 2012 as a DC running active directory, which is a fairly new setup and I am trying to get round having to migrate it to Server 2012 because of the restrictions of 15 client access licences. The client has just requested a terminal server setup running sage 200 with SQL which will be accessed by 10 users from multiple external and internal sites.

My plan is to setup a standalone TS server with server 2012 running as a DC, which will reside on the foundation server network with a static IP.  Then all users will RDP into this server to access sage 200, and any additional data transfer between the 2 domain can be done via a mapped network drive with a username and password assigned.

I am aware this is not the perfect scenario as there will be 2 lots of active directory to manage but can you see there being any other issues I may run into with this setup??

Why don't you just use the Foundation server and add the TS server as a member server?

Foundation server only has 15 user cals and any member server will be locked into this restriction.

Yes but then rather than having multiple ADs, would it not be better to upgrade to a higher version, such as Essentials or Standard?

The upgrade process will have to be a migration to new hardware which I am trying to avoid as the server is only 6 months old. I am sure I can virtulise it onto spare hardware and then do the migration back but original server but this is all time consuming and costly. so I was looking at a different solution.
