RDS Licensing

Configure RDS Licensing Mode

RDS license mode is configured at the “Deployment” level. To point it to the license server:

  1. Log in to the Connection Broker
  2. Open Server Manager
  3. Under Overview, next to “Deployment Overview”, click on Tasks > Edit Deployment Properties
  4. Here (under Licensing) you can set the licensing mode to Per Device or Per User, and select the RDS license server

Configure RDS License Server

  1. Tools > Terminal Server > Remote Desktop Licensing Manager
  2. Activate the License Server
  3. Install Licenses

This article is the best guide I found on how to configure it: RD Licensing Configuration on Windows Server 2012

This has previously helped me fix the error message: “Remote Desktop Licensing Mode Is Not Configured” in Server 2012
