Hello,
We are trying to setup a Dedicated Server in a datacenter that will be running Remote Desktop Services.  The server is connected to our HQ network through a software SSL Vpn.  With that VPN I have joined the server to the domain and enabled the necessary RDS roles.  All of the roles reside on the server in the cloud.  We have activated 10 User Cal's for terminal server.   What happens when a user tries to log onto their remote app which is running quickbooks.  The server logs Ever 4105, TerminalServices-Licensing.
Log Name:      System

Event ID:      4105
Task Category: None
Level:         Warning
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A

Description:
The Remote Desktop license server cannot update the license attributes for user "Christine" in the Active Directory Domain "". Ensure that the computer account for the license server is a member of Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory domain "".
If the license server is installed on a domain controller, the Network Service account also needs to be a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group.
If the license server is installed on a domain controller, after you have added the appropriate accounts to the Terminal Server License Servers group, you must restart the Remote Desktop Licensing service to track or report the usage of RDS Per User CALs.

In Active Directory, you need to find the group "Terminal Server License Servers" and add the computer account "SC-CS01" to that group. Once SC-CS01 is a member of the group and you have restarted the Remote Desktop Licensing Service under Services, your problem should be resolved.

SC-CS01 is already a member of Terminal Server License Servers

What functionality level is your domain? Do you know if your domain was originally a Windows 2000 domain that has been upgraded?

It is SBS 2011 it was functioning at Server 2003 and today I raised it to Server 2008R2.  The domain is new as of the installation of the SBS 2011 system which runs Server 2008 R2

I would try to Set permissions for the Terminal Server License Servers group using Scenario 2 Method 2 from this KB article

I had already followed that, but I went ahead and did it again and restarted the license server.  Not sure that I need to do that, but I still get the same error when I log in as a user.

Is Remote Desktop Licensing and Remote Desktop Services running on the same server?

Author

Commented:
Yes it is.

Commented:
But it is not a domain controller.  Just a member of the domain

We ended up abandoning this project so I am going to close out the ticket
