This is going to sound like a dumb question and I feel stupid even asking it, but am sufficiently confused now that I have no choice. LOL!
We have 2 new servers that the vendor team needs to work on to install products etc.
I was asked to purchase two Remote Desktop CALS so they can connect and did so through a reseller.
See item below
I then started looking for a way to integrate these so they can be used. Eventually I read about needing an RDS server and that is when the confusion began. We recently updated our AD with two new 2016 DC and bought the 400+ User CALS required. However, I never came upon anything that stated that I needed to install licensing servers, etc. nor did any vendor tech helping us out ever mention it and we do not have one installed. So is the RDS server merely for the Remote Desktop and is it a feature installed on the two servers the vendor needs access to, or am I missing a serious piece of the AD puzzle that will eventually cripple us?
Thanks in advance for all insights.
