Terminal Server & RDP Thin Client Conection Issues
Posted on 2012-08-13
I loaded a new install Windows 2008 R2 32 bit server. Activated and ran Terminal Server without installing license for 120 days.
It worked for 120 days. All of my WYSE clients could see the server. No issues there.
The minute I added the license (TS CAL PER USER) and I have enough TS Cals for every user, every WYSE box STOPPED working, as did 1 machine (XP) running Service Pack 2. None of them could RDP into the same server there were RDPing before the licensing took place.
I have the server set to use the lowest level security for the RDP connection (just as it was before license installed), and it worked fine.
I installed Service Pack 3 on the legacy XP machine, and it worked like a charm. However the WYSE machines still don't work.
Remember everything was working FINE and WITHOUT ISSUES until I activated the licensing for the terminal server. Unfortunately, my client cannot go out and replace 12 WYSE boxes at this time.
If it worked before the TS licensing was activated, it should continue to work after?
