How to change the value of Remote Desktop licensing server in RDSH 2008 R2 ?


OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 RDSH (Terminal Server)

Can anyone here please assist me how to change the value of the license server in the RD Session Host Configuration console ?
Because when I double click on the existing connection, in the licensing tab it is disabled.

I’m logging in using vSphere console as DOMAIN\Administrator but I cannot modify the value of mistyped license server.

Not yet striker,

I'm on 2008 R2 not 2012 so is that article still relevant ?

ok, somehow I've found out my solution:

By changing the value of registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services
LicenseServers string entry from oldServer into NewServer1,NewServer2

it fixed the issue with no reboot required.
good to know, thanks for that :-)
