Terminal Server 2012 Licensing error

Posted on 2014-08-27
Last Modified: 2014-08-28
I am having an issue with licensing on a server 2012 installation. The Terminal Services Licenses are installed on the server but it comes up with two messages.
The first one is: The licensing mode for the Remote Desktop Session Host server is not configured.
The second one is: The Remote Desktop Session Host server is within its grace period, but the RD Session Host server has not been configured with any license server.
I have it set as a session host server.

    I hope you have activated licensing server with Microsoft and also registered it within active directory with enterprise account

    Buried in the thread you posted to was a default domain controller policy setting. Most of the settings were talking about workgroup configs. My server is an AD Server. The adjustment to the default setting fixed it. The server is now assigning licenses. Thanks for the help.
