Dears,

I need to bypass the RDP connection limit of 2 in Windows Server 2012 R2.
It turns out that in order to have it so we need to configure RDS role and point the licensing to our RDS Licence Server.
Can you provide walk through steps to apply this setup noting that I already have a licensing Server.

Thanks

Hey Shaik,

where do I have to install the RDS role on the client on which I need to have more than 2 RDP sessions???
and what about the licensing server do I have to configure anything on this one?

Appreciate if you can provide detailed steps.

Thanks

Add the add/remove roles wizard, you have to select Remote Desktop Services installation instead of continuing to add roles and features. Once that's done, make sure to select the session host installation. You can then define licensing server in server manager.

each SERVER not client requires the remote Desktop Host Service. Did you configure the Licensing Server and add the appropriate RDS CALS?
