Terminal Server Licenses

Hi,

I have two servers on my domain Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008R2.
Win2008 is the main domain controller and now we have installed Windows 2012 ServerR2 where we have installed NAV Dynamics. The windows server 2012 has been joined to the domain.
The question is that we have been using terminal server licenses to RDP into the Windows 2008 server and work from there on an warehouse application. We have about 15 licenses and user RDP into the server to work on the warehouse/store application.
Now we have installed MS Dynamics NAV on the new server running Windows 2012. How will the terminal services work?
Do i need to do anything or will the new application on the Windows server 2012 be accessed via RDP by these 15 users?

Your assistance please.

I'm not clear on what you have.

First, you need Windows Server 2012 CALs for all users who will access resources on the 2012 server.  Your 2008 CALs will not cover you here.

Do you want your users to RDP into the 2012 system?  If so, then you need new RDS CALs as well.  If your users will continue to connect to the 2008 server for RDS services and run an app linked to the 2012 server, then you do not need new RDS CALs but you DO need Windows CALs.

You need to get CALs for your RDP 2012 users.

The closing comment is that they managed to get CALs - which is what I stated.  Therefore, why is my answer not being selected as the answer?
