Office/Outlook 365 Deployment on Windows 2012 RDS

Last Modified: 2018-07-18
We currently have 17 users that we will be converting to Office 365.  Everyone will access their mail on a Windows 2012 RDS remote desktop.  We purchased 17 Business Premium licenses through Microsoft and want to make sure that each mailbox is associated with the corresponding user profile on the remote desktop server.  Previous experience with Office 365 (not in a remote desktop environment but a local desktop environment) tells us that every time there is an office update, the user must login with their username and password for any Office application.  We are concerned that if we install the Office suite of products utilizing one of the user mailboxes that all 17 profiles will have to login with that users credentials each time an update occurs.  What is the best way to install Office 365 on the remote desktop server so that this does not happen?
