Hello,

We currently have a Windows 2012 R2 RDS server, running Office 365 Apps for Enterprise.

We will replace it by the end of this year, with a Windows 2022 RDS.

Question : is it still possible to install Office 365 Apps for Enterprise on a 2022 RDS ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi BernardCoudron-0131,

    Microsoft 365 Apps isn’t supported on Windows Server 2022. Please see the article linked below for more information:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/endofsupport/windows-server-support

    Summary from article:

    Microsoft 365 Apps isn’t supported on Windows Server 2022.

    For recommendations on client hosting solutions to use instead, see Microsoft 365 Apps migration from Windows Server:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/endofsupport/windows-server-migration

    For end of support dates for Windows Server 2022, see the Windows Server 2022 lifecycle page:

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answers.

    In your document : "Microsoft 365 Apps isn’t supported on Windows Server 2022." ; it does not mean "cannot be installed and activated"...

    Furthermore, I tested an installation in test RDS 2022 environment :

    • 365 Apps can be installed using the Deployment Tool
    • A 365 Apps licence can be activated without any problem

    So, what is the true meaning of "isn’t supported" in this context ?

    Microsoft pre-sales helpdesk could not provide any additional information.
    My Microsoft distributor could not provide any additional information.

    Any idea of the real limitations ?
