  • License server not issuing, diagnosis is clean, reporting 4105

    Hello...

    I have a 2008 Terminal Services server with Licensing installed. 5 Per User CALs, Domain Scope.

    The install went fine, reporting event ids 8196 and 8195 upon completion.

    The Licensing Diagnosis is reporting 0 warnings.

    Under Configuration on the TS License Manager reads Review. Clicking review pops up a screen with a Yellow Warning and Green Success. Warning reads: This license server is not installed on a domain controller. Terminal servers in this domain will not be able to automatically discover this license server.
    Troubleshooting leads me to the solution of: Add the computer account for the license server to the Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
    The Terminal Services server (Licensing installed on the TS server) is a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory.

    The server reports Event ID 4105 every time someone logs on to the server remotely:
    Description:
    The Terminal Services license server cannot update the license attributes for user "$USERNAME" in the Active Directory Domain "$DOMAINNAME". Ensure that the computer account for the license server is a member of Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory domain "$DOMAIN".
    If the license server is installed on a domain controller, the Network Service account also needs to be a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group.
    If the license server is installed on a domain controller, after you have added the appropriate accounts to the Terminal Server License Servers group, you must restart the Terminal Services Licensing service to track or report the usage of TS Per User CALs.
    Win32 error code: 0x80070005

    If I run a report it looks like the server issued 2 CALs at one point, one of them has already expired even though the user has logged on and off multiple times since then.

    What am I missing here?
    I'm pretty sure it has something to do with how the Licensing server interacts with Active Directory; but, I can't find anything to do beyond adding the computer to Terminal Server License Servers group...

      Thank you for taking the time to read and reply!

      Yes, I have read those multiple times.

      In the Management Interfaces Changes section of Part 2, there's a screen shot of exactly was is not properly configured on my machine:


      I do not pass the initial test; about being published in Active Directory Domain Services. But, he's using a Forrest Scope; which changes things quite a bit, from what I understand.

      He suggests using the License Diagnosis if anything is behaving improperly; but, as I said before, that is not reporting any problems.
