Hi,

Can someone please help me with the below concern.

I have a customer who wants to migrate their Windows Terminal Server services from Windows Server 2008R2 version to 2016 and I have a question about the licensing of Office for this terminal services.

I want to know which office licensing they will have to use, a perpetual license (Office 2019) or Office365 ProPlus (Microsoft apps) subscription?

Best Regards,
VN

    Hello,

    Thank you for your question.

    You need to have the Office 365 subscriptions which contains Office 365 ProPlus such as Office 365 ProPlus and E3 plans. Also use Office Deployment Tool to download and install Office is required. After configured, all the users can access this shared computer and user their Office 365 accounts to work online and local. Below is the two related articles for your reference:
