Is it possible to run the QDS service on a separate server with just the Enterprise license?
Yes, you can run that service in a different server with just the enterprise license
you only need the clustering license, when you are adding another QVS server into the mix
In QMC do you just add another server, but make sure it does not have the server service running?
Well, almost. On each platform, you install just the services you need (QDS+DSC, QVS+QVWS+DSC+QMS). Then you add/modify the services in each category of the QMC to point to the correct platform.
There is some folder sharing to do as well.
My QMC does not have a category for QDS?
Sorry, I wasted your time. The split is not QVS-version dependent, but it requires Publisher to be installed. A SBE with Publisher can have split installs too.

do you already have one QDS ?
QMC > setup > distribution services
click on the + on the top right hand and you can add it
IIRC that option in QMC is not available without a publisher license. Have I got that wrong?
you got it wrong the pic is from a UAT environment and we do not have publisher in our UAT
Why QDS not visible?
