Q: (from Beth)

I have a customer who has a 2008 R2 server as his DC and licensing server. He has a 2012 RDS Server as a member server. He obviously needs 2012 CALs, but he wants to make sure that the 2008 licensing server will read and distribute those 2012 CALs properly.

A:

A Bing search using "windows server" 2008 2012 "licensing server" revealed the answer is “no”:
