No remote Desktop Licence Server availible on RD Session Host server 2012

Last Modified: 2015-08-10
RDS Server 2012. I am getting no license server available.

The only work around is regedit/delete the grace period key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\GracePeriod

License server is activated. It has issued 4 our of 20 licenses.
License diagnoser states, it cannot connect to the license. server, but the RDS server is the license server.

Also GPEDIt lists, it as a license server and it has been added to AD.

A lot of posts state a Microsoft bug, which brings me to the Experts.

Any insight is appreciated.
