I have one single physical server and a Microsoft Server 2012 R2 licence. I want to setup Remote Desktop services on this server for a maximum of 10 concurrent users to access a proprietary timesheet application and basic office apps. I have been informed that RDS must be installed in a domain environment but NOT on a DC. So, I have to enable hyper-V and setup two VMs - one to be my DC and the other a member server running RDS for my users. My question is in this scenario which server has to be used as the RDS licensing server . Please don't tell me I have to create a third VM just to handle the licensing. I think my 2012 R2 standard license only supports two VMs. I haven't bought the RDS CALs yet.
