HPC Remote desktop license

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to HPC, I would like to ask is there a need to purchase a separate license for remote desktop for HPC? For Windows server 2003, it came with two free connections. For HPC is there free connections as well?

    Thanks in advance

  • The Windows Server 2008 HPC Edition operating system, and all the other Server 2008 editions, does allow for two connections, yes. (the two must be different user accounts, and if an admin is logged on to the local console that counts as one of the connections)
