Deploy RDS on single 2012 R2 server to remote users

Hi All,

Clients current network configuration: SBS 2011 domain with 15 user CALs /not used for email just pretty much used for data and occasional RWA to desktop PC's.

They will be adding another 40 employees in 3 weeks and will be creating (1) An Access Database to track time per project they are assigned to. (2) A more advanced SQL based database will also be installed at the end of the year to perform other database related functions.

What they want is for each authorized user to be able to log into the server using Remote desktop to input their time and any other project related data into the Access Database. That is the extent of their current requirement.

Here is what I am proposing: They do not mind spending the money.

Install another local server (2012 R2 Standard) join it to the existing SBS 2011 domain as a member server or DC?.

Install the Access Database and SQL Server on the 2012 Server (Later in the year for the SQL Server)

Purchase the correct amount of 2012 Server Access User CALs

Purchase the correct number of RDS User CALs.

What this boils down to is the client wants to be able to have multiple Remote Desktop Sessions for field folks to enter in their project times. So in reality knowing that only two admin sessions are allowed they want to increase that one for each authorized user by using RDS.

Since the Current SBS 2011 Server (DELL T110) is pretty much only used for file sharing I can install 2012 R2 server on that also if needed.

I realize that at this conjure it is a simplistic approach. Just looking for opinionsĀ  if this is a workable solution.

Thanks,

Frank
