Unable to log onto a remote desktop user session

Sorry if this question seems simple to server admins. I am a developer, not a server admin, though I have some experience with setting up servers and managing them, but have not done so in quite a while. Here is my issue. I am setting up VMs in MSoft Azure. The first VM I set up was a 2008 Server R2 Datacenter edition. I added the remote desktop hosting role since I want me clients to be able to run my software by means of RDP. When I was done adding the role I installed my software, created a user as a test and assigned the user to the RDP group. Other than that I changed no other settings. By the way I am not sure if this is important but when I added the role I selected the option to configure the license server later (120 day grace period). I started the rdp client and logged on as the user with no problems. So far so good. Now I realized I wanted a faster server config so I decided to  spin up another VM and leave the first server alone (have an important demo and did not want to make any changes to the first server since it is working). The second server was also a 2008 Server R2 Datacenter edition and I followed the exact steps I did on the first server. When I went to log in as the user I got the follow message : The requested session access is denied. I search for an answer and the most common one is that the rdp shortcut has the console option enabled, but I am not using a shortcut, I have the rdp file itself on the desktop. After being frustrated I decided to try something else. I spun up a 2012 server and have the exact same issue after again following the exact steps I did on the first server (which are not many since it is a simple setup). Then I tried the first server again and it works perfectly.

Anyone have any idea what I should do from here. Is it possible that since I am using the same computer to log into these servers, and they all are using the 120 grace period, that I can only access the first one?

Thanks in advance

Are you logging in using the correct UserID?  Looks more like a permission issue.

What UserID are you using to login?

Yes,  absolutely. When you use the wrong UserID or Password you get a completely different error message.

Moved over to Amazon Web Services and everything is working fine. It must have had something to do with being a trial. Microsoft, it figures !
