My Win2012 RD Licensing Manager assigns licenses to the same pc multiple times. Why?

How do I fix this? I'm out of licenses.

At first glance, make certain this PC is logging off (and not just exiting) Remote Desktop. That is the most likely reason if all else is running properly.

Ya, I'm starting to think that also....Any idea how I can revoke more than the 20% limit so I can free up some of these licenses? I have one client that is using 20 licenses.

In my clients, I tell people to log off properly. Kick them off, and they will learn quickly.

Look at rebuilding the RD Licensing database. Steps can be found here (link is for 2008 R2 but should still work for 2012 R2): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd851811.aspx
