Hello,

As my shop is being audited by Microsoft, I am trying to gather the TS/RDS CAL details from my RD licensing server. i have about 6 servers which my users remote desktop to and work on a daily. All of these servers point to my RD licensing server for CAL's

It seems like plenty of temporary Device CALs are issued rather than the Open User CALs. Since I have been at the company for about a year I've seen these temporary CALs and not once issue related to a user who RDP due to CALs. Last time I remember seen the Issued count for the temp CALs it was at 55..now it is at 111 as you can see.

Is something corrupt? or is perhaps my TS/RDS infrastructure not set up correct? I also need to gather the amount of CALs in use since MS is asking, but it seems only TS/RDS CALs are visible. Perhaps the server CALs are based on a trust relationship.

RD License Manager
many thanks in advance
