Migration of Terminal server farm

Hi Experts,

is it possible to have 2 Terminal server farms in one domain ?
Because I have to plan a migration of one domain to another.
What do you recommend ?

A Terminal Server farm is nothing more than a collection of Terminal Servers exposed under a common DNS name, with traffic routed to them via DNS roundrobin or some form of load balancer.

So just add the servers running the RD Session Host role either to one farm or another depending on which farm they will serve traffic for.

For session affinity purposes, each server might subscribe to a TS Connection Broker / Session Broker to ensure existing user sessions are resumed on the terminal server they were first opened on. However, you can simply deploy two session brokers and have members of each farm connect to the appropriate one; or use one connection broker with two farm names.

Nothing problematic at all.

ok this sounds good so far.

It means, I can unjoin my TS and rejoin to my main domain ?
Of course I have to change names and IP addresses...before I join the TS to my main domain.
In this case, the TS have other applications on it then in the old network.
I think here it is better to have two licensing servers right ?
With a few minor configuration tweaks, yes you should be able to. You don't NEED multiple licensing servers, but I would agree in this usecase it would seem best just to keep all components separate, so I would probably use multiple, too.
