Activating Licence Server for Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server 2008 Standard
Posted on 2013-10-28
I am having problem in setting up the Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 Standard (which is the 2nd Server connected to the SBS2008 with the same domain name).
Q1. When I select the Licensing Diagnosis under Terminal Server Configuration Details, I received the following 2 warnings -
1. ABC-SERVER - The Terminal Services Configuration tool is running with local account credentials. Licensing Diagnosis will not be able to discover domain or forest license servers automatically and the Total Number of TS client access licences. Available value may be inaccurate
2. ABC-SERVER - The terminal server is within the grace period, but the terminal server has not discovered any licences.
Q2. When activating the Licence Server for Remote Desktop Services -- What is the Product ID for Windows Server 2008 Standard in the following format
00486-001-0001076-84161 (this was for the Windows Server 2008 R2 is it the same ?)
Any prompt assistance will be very much appreciated.
