Hi, I am looking for some advice.

We currently have Adobe Reader DC installed on Terminal Servers which are used by multiple users. There is a requirement for a small amount of users to have the ability to perform redactions within PDF documents.

My questions are:

1- Can we purchase the Redact option for specific users and for them to login and have the ability to Redact using Reader DC

2- If no to above, what are the implications for having two versions of Adobe DC on the same Terminal Servers? Do we need to license everyone for the full version, or because it requires the users to login then we can co-exist suffice?

3 - We have multiple servers in the Farm (max 50 in one farm currently), so potentially any time a user logs in they could end up on a different server. Therefore is the license for the user or a combination of the user and the device that they are logging on to.

Thanks

1. No. You need Acrobat (Pro) to be able to do it, or Acrobat Standard, but then it requires using a script.

2. You can have Acrobat and Reader DC installed at the same time, although it doesn't make sense, as Acrobat can do everything Reader can, and more.

3. I believe the license is per machine, but that's a legal question that you need to figure out directly with Adobe. I suggest you contact their Volume Licensing department and ask these questions.
