Question about allowing Remote Desktop sessions into a new Windows 2012 R2 Server

I am adding a Server 2012 R2 machine to an existing domain.  The new server will have no primary server function.  The existing domain controller/AD is a 2008 Standard machine.

The purpose of the new 2012 server is to simply allow three users to run SysPro software on it via Remote Desktop Connection.

What do I do, and what roles (if any) do I implement in the Add Roles and Features Wizard, keeping in mind that my goal is to allow 3 current users on the present domain to simultaneously connect to the server via Remote Desktop Connection?

Thanks.

Can I assume that this does not affect any rolls on the existing 2008 server?

Are you not adding the RDS stuff onto the new 2012 server? In which case, no, it will not affect roles on the 2008 server.

That's right, I am adding RDS onto new server, but there are current users who will not be using the new server at all.  They will continue to remote in to the old 2008 server as they have been doing.
