If you use Microsoft Windows Server 2008 to manage your data and development projects, you may likely have several team members working across the same platform. For users who need access to your operating system on their devices, you’ll need to invest in remote desktop licenses for Windows Server 2008. With this bundle, you get 5 Client Access Licenses (CALs) to grant remote desktop access to up to 5 end users. Order your 5 user-CAL bundle for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 from our Microsoft Silver Partners here at Trusted Tech Team.

Remote Desktop Services 2008 brings a mature virtualization platform to the table, making end-user maintenance easier than previous versions of Windows Server. New security features are in place, including Network Level Authentication (NLA), which authenticates the user, client machine, and server credentials against each other before a TS session is spun up on the server and the logon screen is presented to the user. Server Authentication uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) to help ensure that clients are connecting to a legitimate terminal server and not some rogue machine.

Will work on:

  • Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 Standard or Enterprise

RDS Client Access Licenses (CALs) are required for RDS access, and must be installed on a RD Licensing server. These RDS CALs will be tied to the server, but can be moved to new hardware if needed. Remember that RDS supports both per-user and per-device licensing, and the model you choose should depend if you have more users or computers.  RDS does not have concurrent-user licensing, and the licenses you choose must match the mode for which you configure the RD Session Host server.

Install the RD Licensing role service just as you did the RD Session Host role service. Then you must:

  • Activate the RD Licensing server
  • Install RDS CALs so the RD Licensing server can allocate them to users and devices
  • Tell the RD Session Host server to use the RD Licensing server (you must do this even if the two role services are located on the same machine)
