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?
