I have a new Server 2012 R2 machine connected to a domain where the DC is a Windows Server 2008 Standard machine.
The new server is not running any server roles other than Remote Desktop. The machine is only running a parts & service database program. Users typically run Remote Desktop to get onto the 2012 server, and run the database there.
I installed the CALs for Remote Desktop on the Server 2012 machine. However, a yellow balloon message popping up in the system tray area is:
"Remote Desktop Services will stop running in X days if this computer does not contact at least a valid Server 2008 license server. On the RD connection broker server, use Server Manager to verify or configure licensing settings."
We do have CALs installed on the 2008 server from years ago. I'm confused because I thought I had correctly gone through the wizard to install the Server 2012 RD CALs on the Server 2012 machine. I'm not sure how to resolve this.
Thanks for any help.
