Hello,

 

Today I am installing a simply 2 server scenario. 2 Windwos 2016 Server installations.

1 is a Remote Desktop Server where I want the users to be able to use Office 2016.

They already own Office 365 E3 licences, so for me it should be easy to deploy Office 2016 with the deployment tools for Office 2016 ProPlus (what I need on my RDS for licensing reasons)

 

I can not find any websites related to installing Office 2016 on a Windows Server 2016.  The Microsoft website that I found was about installing Office 2016 on Windows 2012R2 and not later versions.

 

Is it a good idea to go on with this installation? What special changes should I make when installing this combination? Thanks in Advance

I have not been able to get office 2016 patches to flow to my Server 2016 with desktop experience using SCCM 1610 yet. Tread carefully.
