RDS licensing 2008 to 2016

Hi all,

Currently using 2008 RDS user cals and I want to start upgrading to server 2016 for RDS. Ive noticed that the server doesn't seem to work when pointing at existing RDS license server, does this need upgrading in order to work with server 2016?

OK, thought as much. So in terms of licensing, we have a Microsoft agreement. I assume they have to send me another license?
You need to specifically write down the benefits of moving your terminal server from 2008 to 2016...If the 2016 has features you just can't live without it then yes you need to purchase new RDS cals...but if you can live with the old one then you can save the money for later or start planning your applications porting to web implementation....

Apparently we have it under our agreement we can upgrade but the annual charge will probably go up.
I'll repeat - it depends on your agreement.
Slight clarification - by Server CALs - I mean Windows Device CALs and/or User CALs, as you deem appropriate.
