Windows Server CAL Licensing Guide

Expanded cluster scalability—Windows Failover Clustering has taken a big jump in scalability.  Previous versions of Windows Server were limited to 16 nodes. Windows Server 2012 clusters can support up to 63 nodes and up to 4,000 virtual machines (VMs) per cluster.

Note that licensing is based on either per-user or per-device, and the model you choose should be based on whether you have more users or computers. RDS does not have concurrent-user licensing, and the licenses you choose must match the mode 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)
