  • RDS Per User CAL's using more than alotted?

    Started receiving the below event ID on my 2008 R2 RDS servers. When I do a report on the License server it shows 100 user cals installed and 127 used. Does MS allow a certain percentage over your purchased user CALS? Not sure how it could lease 127 when we only purchased and installed 100.

    The remote session could not be established from remote desktop client computername because its license could not be renewed.

    Each new TS customer would obtain a temp license for 90~ days. During this time a permanent license would be deploy for the user.
    I would suggest to verify the connectivity to between TS and the TS License Server first:
