How share RDS CAL licensing between two terminal server

Federico Coppola 1,176 Reputation points

Inside company already exist a terminal server Windows 2016 Datacenter.
Another VM running Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (we can it server02)

I need to deploy a secondary terminal sever on this secondary Win 2016 server.
These two terminal server will not share same users and they will run different applications.
The first terminal server is for accounting software and the secondary terminal server is going to be for purchasing software.

The first server has got license RDS service role installed also.
Can I link the secondary terminal server to the first terminal server to share the same RDS licenses? How can I do it?
Should I deploy the secondary RDP terminal server in the same farm or not?

Thanks for your help

    Yes, it should work, just point the new one to the licensing server for Cals.
