Can a Windows 2012r2 server get licenses from a 2008r2 terminal license server and use them?

we have a 2008r2 terminal license server for our remote desktop clients and a few servers that points to the license server for the licenses. If i upgrade one of the servers that the clients remotes into can i have the 2012r2 server to locate or point to the 2008r2 license server and if so what services do i need to add to the windows 2012r2 to make this happen?

Can that 1 server share the 100 licenses from it with another 2012 server if so how do i configure it?

Cliff GaliherCommented:
You usually configure the licensing server in the 2012 Server Manager topology settings. Yes  one licensing server can issue licenses to many session hosts.
