Installing Remote Desktop Services Role on Server 2019 Std. Error

Installing Remote Desktop Services Role on Server 2019 Std. Hyper-V Guest.
1. Role is installed via Remote Desktop Services installation --> Quick Start --> Session-Based Desktop Deployment.
2. Remote Desktop Services Role installation completes successfully
3. Session Collection installation failed with following error: "Failed: Unable to create the session collection. The property UserAuthenticationRequired is configured by using Group Policy Settings. Use the Group Policy Management Console to configure this property."  (Screen shot below)
4. I tried configuring the following Group Policy with same result:  Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Security\Require user authentication for remote connections by using Network Level Authentication: Enabled

I'm not sure if this is correct GPO to modify. I'm at a loss. Any guidance would be much appreciated. Please let me know if you need additional information. Thanks! Chip

Good morning Philip,
Thanks for taking time and detailed response. I made the NLA change as part of my initial troubleshooting steps. I changed GPO back to Not Configured. Unfortunately, receiving same error.

I should have stated in initial question, The DC is Windows 2019 Std.. DC was migrated from SBS 2011. I'm thinking a GPO from SBS 2011 may be causing error. However, I'm unable to locate a NLA object not set to Disabled.

Please let me know if you have additional thoughts & Thank you!
Hi Philip,
Update....   Issue resolved. I did find GPO from SBS 2011, (Windows SBS Client Policy) NLA "was" set to Disabled. Changed to Not Configured. All good. Thanks Very Much for assistance sir!
