We can also see the new license key we just added by the “License Manager” itself, and a green tick appears next to our Windows server name. We have a second W2012R2 server on which we cannot install the RDS license and remove the 5 blocked licenses from the first server. For RDS-CALs purchased by retail, select License Pack and enter the 25-digit code on the license Pak you received. NOTE: It is very important to keep your original purchase emails, paperwork, contract numbers, license numbers, key retail codes, etc., in a safe place if you need to reinstall/migrate/restore licenses in the future. I received an internal investigation, although I am not convinced of why they want to know the details (which server). We have a cluster of two servers (active/backup) on which the authentication license is configured on the main servers and backup (WS2016). A group of users (z.B. 10) initiated sessions via remote locations for the cluster, but none of the servers displays license authentication (no license is displayed as 0 in the dashboard). But meetings/connections are above. The question is how to determine which server provides which authentication license number to which user, and how to view it (not sure that the authentication license manager can do so)? Initially, 50 licenses x 4 groups (a total of 200 licenses) were configured on main servers and backup servers.

It could be confusing and difficult to understand the situation. I hope that a professional administrator can advise me and appreciate your early feedback. Thank you. By default, only two simultaneous active rdp sessions are allowed on Windows Server editions such as 2012,2016 or 2019. If we need to connect more than two users at the same time to the server, we need a remote deactivation license (RD license), a former terminal service license (TS license) that manages remote customer access licenses (RDS-CALs) to allow users to connect to a remote session host (SESSION HOST RD). To license RDP customers, your RDS license server must be activated. To do this, open the remote casually deactivating license manager, click the right button on your server`s name and select Activate the server. Now, in this section, we have to choose the type of licensing program we use. There are few options, as we are discussing two licensing program methods. These two are the most commonly used ones. We just need to choose one of them based on our personal choice and the type of license we currently hold.

Once you have the two license servers above, there is a CALs transfer option in the license manager, and you use the same contract number. If you know that you purchased RDS-CALs for the agreement displayed in VLSC, you contacted VLSC support and/or your dealer to ask why the licenses are not displayed in VLSC? Now you need to install the remote decommissioning license package (RDS CAL) that you purchased on the license server. Hello, I hosted a windows server 2016 VM on VMware, The additional delay of 120 days expired, so I bought 5 CAL licenses because a number of users have to connect to this VM. I followed the steps above. I activated the license server on the virtual computer, then I added the CAL licenses to the same server. Everything seemed good on the license manager with the license server enabled and 5 CAL user licenses available. However, if I try to remotely remotely put a remote control on the VM, it means: “No remote license server is available to provide a license.” Even in the diagnostic state RD / The license mode for the remote desktop server is not configured / The remote hosting server is not configured with a license server. Did I miss something obvious? We bought 25 CAL RDS users as part of our Enterprise Agreement (Enterprise 6?), I`m trying to install the licenses on our term server, but it asks for a 7-digit registration number, but if we consider
