Can I have RDS 2012 R2 and RDS 2019 on same domain


Hi,

Currently, we have RDS configured on Windows Server 2012 R2 and is being used. We have total of 37 servers in our ABC domain out of which 2 gateway servers, 1 broker server, and 15 session host servers.

We are planning on upgrading to Windows Server 2019 and using RDS on them. For that purpose, we spun up a new set of Virtual machines with W S 2019 and joined to our abc domain. I just want to make sure that deploying RDS on Windows Server 2019 wouldn't harm the current Windows Server 2012 R2 RDS.

Thanks,

If you plan to build 2 different farms (different RD Broker / RD session Hosts / Web / Gateway) in that case, there is no issues.

For the licensing server, if a user connect to the 2019 farm and receive a 2019 RDS CAL, this CAL will work for the 2012 R2 farm as well. But the opposite will not work.
