  • Terminal Services Licensing

    Hi All,

    First post so go easy
    We have a TSFarm with a TS gateway server and 350 Device CALs. We are hitting our limit on licenses so I've been asked to have a look into this. Off the top of my head 350 licenses is about right as we only have 650 staff and most won't connect from home. I have had a look and I can see that some licenses are still in there for machines which don't even exist anymore.

    Does anyone know why this TS license is still active even though it has expired?
    What would happen if I removed all the license entries? Would the clients just get the re-issued?

    Hi,

    What would happen if I removed all the license entries? Would the clients just get the re-issued? -> In theory that old computer will be re-register in the TS license server.
    However, I usuallu use Per User license, so you may need to test it:

      Any ideas why these licenses aren't being revoked even though they're expired?

      How is the licensing controlled? Is there an mmc where the revocation timers are set?

        The issue occured due the use of "Per Device" license.

          Is there any way to convert device licenses to user licenses? Would it not be possible to adjust the lease timer to 24 hours?

            Please contact Microsoft support local sells team. I guess that isnt the first that had this problem.
