Server 2012 RDP Licensing
Posted on 2014-09-30
I have a "Windows Server 2012 Standard" which has been running for about 2 years with RDP.
yesterday I started getting the following message:
"Remote Desktop Services will stop working because this computer is past its grace period and has not contacted at least a valid Windows Server 2008 license server. On the RD Connection Broker server, use Server Manager to specify licensing settings"
I did some googling and found a registry entry to delete, which I deleted.
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\Grace Period
Now I get the following message:
"Remote Desktop Services will stop working in 120 days if this computer does not contact at least a valid Windows Server 2008 license server. On the RD connection Broker server, use Server Manager to verify or configure licensing settings"
Like I said it has been OK till now, we have no other server on the network.
