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

Last Modified: 2015-07-16
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?
