I have purchased 10 user terminal server 2008R2 CAL's and activated the server following microsoft's instructions where I had to enter my license number and authorization number. It shows me that I have 10 user CAL's when I look at the TS license server.

Problem is that I still cannot connect more than 2 RDP connections at a time. I have read that you need to enable terminal services mode. I installed the role, but not sure what more that means to do besides this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Just check if the Terminal Server licensing is also installed.
You can check through Program Files-Administrative -Terminal Configuration Manager.

Also have you restarted/rebooted the server post changes...

Thanks for the idea. I did verify that the terminal server licensing is installed. I did select that as the license server on the host configuration as well. I just have a 2008R2 enterprise server that I installed the remote desktop services on. Thats all I really should need, right?

Yes, I have rebooted. This is just a test server at this point so I can reboot anytime.

I have faced similar problem. Just uninstall the terminal server role - reboot - reinstall - reboot and should work fine. In fact if trial 120 days of terminal services is not used; u may try the same also.
