Remote Desktop Licensing Server (2k8) - Very Basic Question


I've just installed for the first time in our Org, a 2k8 RD Licensing server.  As soon as it came up, it was referencing another server in our enterprise.

This was a fresh install.

My question is, where did it pull this information from, and where would I go to remove it then?  I have a requirement to ensure the server isn't utilizing any other source for licensing stuff.

The server that's listed is in a different domain, same forest.  *Please forgive me, as this is the first I've ever worked with this 2k8 role.

You will find that your license server it found is one that is advertised to the Forest, and as a result, the licensing manager has picked it up.  You can't remove it from here, but what you can do is change your license server so that it advertises to Domain only.  If the affected server is in a different domain (albeit same forest), then it won't discover this license server.

To make these changes, use the  Remote Desktop Licensing Manager, and change the scope.

Thank you very much for the assistance.  Unfortunately, we're already set as "Domain" scope.

Ah - unless you mean configure the other domain server as "domain only"...

Unfortunately, We have no control over that server from where we stand.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
