Server 2008 R2 rds cal Issue

Hi,

I have a server 2008 r2 standard and I just loaded in 5 rdp cals. When I go to the 'RD Licensing Manager,' it does display that I have 5 rds cal's however I can only remote in 2 users.  All users have rdp rights and when I try to login the 3rd user it ask me to log off one of the 2 users that are logged in.

Any idea on how I can get my other 3 rds cals to kick in?

I already enabled multiple session through tsconig, but I know that only means the same username can have multiple sessions.

Hi,

so the simple check list.

How you loaded cal licenses?
Did you activate license server before?
Have you specified license sever in Remote Desktop Sesion Host server?

Did you install the RDS role?  It sounds like you didn't and it's still running in Administrative Mode.

@ Jaroslav- I had Microsoft walk me through how to add the cals and activate them. I don't have the 'Remote Desktop Session Host' Role installed. Do I need that installed?

@ Leew- I have 'Remote Desktop Licensing' Role installed

This is a signal server environment and i just need to my 5 users rdp into the server concurrently.

All that Remote Desktop Licensing does is support the licensing service for servers that are running the Remote Desktop Session Host... since you're not, your service is doing nothing.
