Server 2008
Windows 7 workstations.

I have about 20 computers logging on to the server via RDP.

On one workstation im getting this error.
the remote session was disconnected because there are no remote desktop license servers available I can logon from a different workstation

We ran out of licenses and I had to revoke a license every now and again to allow a user to logon. I feel like this has something to do with it, and now the server won't issue this workstation a license.

Check to make sure DNS settings are correct (the domain controller should be DNS). Check the event log and look for errors. You might be able to resolve this by disjoining and rejoining the computer to the domain, to re-establish the trust.

All user profiles should remain intact (login as domain Administrator first).

These workstations are in remote locations now on the local network. I use a VPN so they can logon with the server name.

Maybe add an entry to the Windows hosts file so they can easier identify the server.

So if your server is called "server1" with IP "10.0.0.2", and the domain is called "domain.local", then you can add the following two entries to the hosts file:

10.0.0.2       server1
10.0.0.2       server1.domainl.local

The hosts file is located at "%windir%\system32\drivers\etc".

That might resolve the problem. Maybe check in the server if there is a DHCP lease for an existing computer that the server has issues a license to.

The wrong ip address was listed for the license server. Weird because its been working for about a year.
