I need to run Remote Desktop Services on a 2008 R2 Server for about another month, but my grace period is nearly up.  Is there a way to extend it without purchasing licenses?  If not, I'll need a little help getting it set up.

Description:
The RD Licensing grace period is about to expire on 3/11/2011 and the service has not registered with a license server with installed licenses. A RD Licensing server is required for continuous operation. A Remote Desktop Session Host server can operate without a license server for 120 days after initial start up.

Nope, you need to buy RD CALs and configure RD Licensing server for that.

Yikes.  It expired today and I'm in triage mode.  Luckily I can use Dell's Idrac to remote in. I ran the license manager on the server and plugged in our Authorization Number, and License Agreement Number.  It completed successfully, but we still cannot RDP.  Rebooted and still cannot RDP in. We get this error.  I am reviewing the link above.

"The remote session was disconnected because there are no terminal server license servers available to provide a license. Please contact the server administrator."
