  • Unable to add SCP for Terminal Server Licensing in Windows Server 2008 R2

    Hi All,

    I'm having problem in my last step of installing the licensing service for my current Windows Server 2008R2,
    it gives me an error message with Event ID 85, see the attached error message,

    Log Name:      Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing/Admin
    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing
    Date:          23/03/2010 4:01:12 PM
    Event ID:      85
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    User:          NETWORK SERVICE
    The Remote Desktop license server could not be registered as a service connection point in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Ensure that there is network connectivity between the license server and AD DS. To register the license server as a service connection point in AD DS, use Review Configuration in the RD Licensing Manager tool.
    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="">
        <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing" Guid="{4D99F017-0EB1-4B52-8419-14AEBD13D770}" />

        <Correlation />
        <Execution ProcessID="1116" ThreadID="1128" />
        <Security UserID="S-1-5-20" />
    as the result of this SCP problem, this licensing server cannot publish the proper number of CAL domain wide,

    I've installed the license in my current Windows Server 2008 R2 (activated and joined to the domain too.) but then i still cannot register the SCP ?

    Can anyone help me here in registering this Windows Server 2008 R2, I've logged in using DOMAIN\Administrator account already but still I cannot do it.

    I'm logging in using my DOMAIN\Administrator which is the highest account in my single domain already.

    and yes I have added this server named TERMSERV01 into the

    Computer | Terminal Service server group in the AD DS but still it shows exclamation mark in the RD licensing manager of not being able to register as service connection point
