How to identify the remaining period of time of RDS in a win 2008 server?

Considering the following question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_27609475.html

Seems that the RDS trial period has expired but If go to The Remote Desktop Licensing Manager I can see a server activated and there is the following information:

(Under Version and License Type).
Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2: CAL per User of TS or RDS Installed.


(Under Licensing Program).
Volume Licensing.

(Under Total of Licenses).
Volume Licensing.10.

(Under Available).
Generate Report.

(Under Issued).
- (Only a -).

(Under Expiration Date).
Never.


I suspect that these licenses are Windows CALs and perhaps were not properly installed but I wonder why Windows CALs could appear inside The Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

Regards.

They are not Windows CALs they are RDS\TS CALs.

Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2: CAL per User of TS or RDS Installed

What is the actual issues you are having?

If you can't get a license make sure TS\RDS server is connected to the correct TS\RDS licensing server

We got a message that the terminal server was not enabled, but we restarted the server and now everything is working. Any ideas?

You could have not been configured properly the reboot properly configured the server with the TS role.
