For forward planning purposes RDS is not available for Windows 8\Server 2012 as I understand it.
Extract from Windows 8 and Server 2012 compatability cookbook Remote data service server components are removed from Windows 8 Platforms Clients - Windows 8
Servers - Windows Server 2012
Description The remote data service (RDS) server is not available in Windows 8:
Manifestation Customers cannot host an RDS server on Windows 8.
- File msadcf.dll, which hosts the default "business object" RDSServer.DataFactory, is removed, and its associated files (msadcfr.dll, msadcfr.dll.mui, handler.reg and handsafe.reg) are removed
- File msdfmap.dll, which is the default Handler, is removed, and the file msdfmap.ini is removed
- File msadcs.dll, the ISAPI, is removed
Mitigation Customers can keep their RDS server on a machine with Windows 7 or other down-level operating systems.
Solution Customers can keep their RDS server on a machine with Windows 7 or other down level operating systems.

I've got a windows 2012 server here, with RDSH as a possible installable role. From the looks of the info you've posted, you're looking at Remote Data Services rather than Remote Desktop Session.

You are quite right - I must read threads properly!

Remote Desktop Services is definitely included in W2012 - I recently made a training video for setting up wifi terminals
- and connected to Windows2012 server.
Configuring wifi Thin Client - YouTube
(When buying terminals with intention to use them with W2012 at some point - its probably a good idea to check they support NLA or can be upraded to do so)

@Axel - will the M80F have an upgrade to allow NLA at any point? Also, how's your new terminal coming on?

Hi Will - Yes, the M85 (as per video) is essentially a point of sale version of the office type M80 terminal you have - it just has extra ports (serial + parallel) for POS peripherals. The same f/w runs on both and f/w shown is currently in Beta...

25 DAYS!!! LOL!! That's got to be £15k right there. I once paid for 3 days when we virtualised all my servers and I thought I'd overdone it a little. Virtual PCs do have some nice advantages but if your primary focus is on remote access then you should install remote access server. If you can get £70k funding however this would make your life pretty sweet when it comes to maintainence remotly and locally.
But the 25 days is a little ott.
