RDP Users on 2008 Server Access Services on Server 2012 Essentails Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Unsure if this is the correct forum to post this...choices are limited...

    My company has 13 users that use various forms of XP use RDS to connect to a 2008 Standard app server.  The account they use is a local account on the 2008 server, not domain accounts, at least not yet.  The server is a member server on a domain with a seperate 2008 Standard FSMO/DC.  We anticipate purchasing CRM and and are considering purchasing 2012 Essentials to install the supporting apps on (SQL, and Sharepoint).   The actual CRM app will probably be installed on the 2008 app server the users RDS into.

    My questions is, since 2012 only supports windows 7/8 clients, will those XP users who RDP into the 2008 server be able to access services on the 2012 server?  MS seems to think it wouldn't be an issue, but I want to absolutely sure beforehand.

    Thaks for your help in advance.
