I have a setup with two RDS hosts, one connection broker and one gateway.
All servers are 2012 R2....and are updates with the lastest from Windows update.

The problem is that all of the RDS-licenses are cunsumed by a few computers.
One computer could have 10 permanent RDS device licenses...and a lot of temporary licenses.
In the list of permanent licenses, I see about 10 computers. They consume 50 licenses now.

What could be wrong?

Are your licenses per-user or per-computer?

It sounds like you are having licensing issues on the clients (possibly?)..

Check their eventlogs for RDS licensing errors, and delete the licensing key on one of the client machines, and then watch it to see if happens again.

The key is HKLM\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing

Also, check the eventlogs on the licensing server to see if there is anything on there..
