Hi Experts,

Does it exists any kind of solution to add licenses for a SBS 2011 Std? Even an expensive software or licencing solution...

Thanks in advance for your help !

No. If you want a terminal server, you will be buying and installing a standard server license and CALs. You won't be running it on SBS.

OK, it is what I expected as an answer.
So there is no workaround at all, even with Windows Small Business Server Premium Add-on?

The premium add-on includes a second server license. You can use that license to run a terminal server, sure. On a second server or VM. But not *on* SBS. And the PAO is more expensive than a standard server license because it also includes SQL. It's CALs at more expensive as well.

So sure, the PAO gets you there. But offers no way of getting terminal services on the SBS OS install, and does so at greater cost.
