Moving Few RDS Licenses

Cosmic Storm 21 Reputation points

We have a Win 2016 based AD Domain named "" with a Win 2019 based RDS License Server having 200 RDS licenses.

We also have another Win 2016 based AD Domain named "".

Both AD domains are physically & logically isolated from each other but are owned by a single organization.

We now wish to use 50 RDS license in the AD Domain "". These 50 RDS license should be moved/migrated out from the 200 those are setup in the AD Domain "".

Need to know the setup to achieve the above requirement. A link to any MS article will be helpful.
