2/22/2021 23:48Service Control Manager7034NoneThe Remote Desktop Licensing service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 3 time(s).

Was stooped on KMS Server  almost 7 days before but Issue Reported Today ?
As citrix servers were getting RDS license from this KMS Server so is there time frame RDS is required to provide license like issue reported after 7 days?
Please advise how  to dig more into the reason why service stopped on my KMS Server ie Window 2016 Server.
Also Please help if we can configure redundancy for KMs Server like to use multiple KMS Server for licensing to be resumed in worst case
