One or more Terminal Server Licensing certificates on server <SERVERNAME> are corrupt.  Terminal Server Licensing will only issue temporary licenses until the server is reactivated.  See Terminal Server Licensing help topic for more information.

I'm also getting this RemoteAccess error under the System log:

The user DOMAINNAME\user connected to port VPN4-4 has been disconnected because no network protocols were successfully negotiated.

Please see if this knowledge base article applies to you:

Summary: This issue may be caused if your server was activated using automatic activation over the Internet. You may try to re-activate the server if it is connected to the Internet and has the Connection Method set to Automatic.

Got the licensing issue resolved. Can you help with the VPN issue or should I repost with a new question?

Good to know your licensing is OK now.

If the RemoteAccess error occurs frequently then it may help to contact the user to see if they're having problems connecting with their dial-up VPN connection. If so, it may be caused by incorrect connection settings on the client or maybe authentication failures. If it is an issue you can't solve then I guess you should create a new question so this one can be closed.

Thanks for accepting!
