Good morning!

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise physical server with (3) Hyper-V VMs running on it.

One of the VMs is a terminal server in which our remote users log in to.

I have installed an OPEN 15 user license in the licensing manager. Well, my trial session has ended and no one can log in.

I look in the licensing manager and it states 0/15 licenses are in use? Why isn't it issuing licenses?

Please take a peek and advise!

Thanks Experts!

Have you specified a License Server?

Click Start - Administrative Tools - Remote Desktop Services - Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration
In there look for Remote Desktop License Servers - right click on and select Properties
Is your license server pointing to the correct server in there?
See screenshot for example as it should be.
