We have a windows 2008 server that is not in a domain. It is in workgroup. This server was installed recnetly. When i tried to remote desktop to it, i get the following error:

the remote session is disconnected becase there no terminal server licenses servers available.

Can we remote desktop to this server even though is not on a domain.  If so, why are we getting the error.

It sounds like when the server was setup the full Terminal Service roles/features was installed but no license server was specified.

The server does not need to be a domain member for Terminal Service access though if it's designated as an actual Terminal Server then it does need licenses. In a default state (i.e no TS roles/features in stalled) only the local admin should be able to remote onto it.

Hi

Yeah, you need to be logged in as an administrator. The following is the instructions from Microsoft to specify the license server which is what I tend to use:
