Server 2012R2 Remote Desktop licensing
Posted on 2014-04-15
We have a 2012R2 remote desktop server set up in a virtualized environment. I just added another stand alone 2012R2 Terminal Server. The virtualized server is the licensing server with 20 licenses installed. The new server reports it is running on the grace period and needs licenses. If I go to RD License broker on the added server it shows itself and "deactivated". I then added the licensing server and it shows with green checkmark, "activated" and the 20 licenses.
If I close out the Broker service, the new server has no licenses and go back to RD Broker shows the license server no longer there. What's wrong??
