Cannot install Remote Desktop Services on Windows Server 2012
Posted on 2014-04-21
RDS was originally installed on the Windows Server 2012 server using the Role-based or feature-based installation. I have since resolved the issue of RDS expiring, but RDS is still not handing out the terminal server licenses.
I replicated this on my Windows Server 2012 test server and then ran the RDS install using the "Remote Desktop Services Installation" method. However, when I try to install RDS using the "Remote Desktop Services Installation" method on the production server I get an error message that says:
"Could not create the Windows Management Instrumentation Windows Firewall exception"
Windows Firewall is enabled and the Remote Desktop Services allow statements are in Windows Firewall. What can I do to resolve the issue that I am getting when installing RDS?
