Terminal services asking for lisence server.
Posted on 2004-09-06
I have a client running a 2003 server as an AD controller and a DNS server. It's been up an running for over 3 or 4 months now with no trouble. This evening I was trying to access it to check backups for him and I cannot connect because ....THE REMOTE SESSION WAS DISCONNECTED BECAUSE THERE WAS NO TERMINAL SERVER LISENCE SERVER AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE A LISENCE. PLEASE CONTACT THE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR....That's me and Im stumped. What would I need a lisence server for doing ONLY admin taskes with only one RDP connection. Whay all of a sudden. I thought hat remote admin mode was not required to have terminal server lisence server? (Max 2 connections).
What Am I missing or has something gone bad on me. This worked fine up until this evening. Sounds like the 120 days have passed but Im in admin only mode on the box.
