For RDS CALs purchased through the Volume Licensing Program (which I recommend), select your program, then enter your contract number, authorization number, and license number. These numbers will be made available to you after purchase and can be viewed in the Volume License Service Center (VLSC). I received an internal request, although I`m not convinced why they want to know the details (which server). We have a cluster of two servers (active/backup) where the authentication license is configured on the back-end servers and then on the backup servers (WS2016). A group of users (for example. B 10) has initiated remote sessions with the cluster, but none of the servers display license authentication (the number of licenses is displayed in the dashboard as 0). But meetings/connections are up. The question is how to determine which server provides which authentication license number to which user and how to view it (not sure that the authentication license manager can do this)? Initially, 50 x 4 group licenses (for a total of 200 licenses) were configured on the primary backup servers. It could be confusing and difficult to understand the situation. I hope a professional administrator can advise me and appreciate your first comments. Thank you. The next steps for the wizard will depend on the licensing program you selected.
In the case of Enterprise Agreement, you must specify its number. If you selected License Pack (Retail Purchase), enter the 25-digit product key that you received from Microsoft. Hello, I hosted a Windows 2016 VM server on VMware, The courtesy period of 120 days has expired, so I purchased 5 CAL licenses, as a number of users need to connect to this VM. I followed the steps below. I activated the license server on VM and then added the CAL licenses on the same server. Everything looked fine in the license manager with an activated license server and 5 CAL user licenses available. However, if I try to use the VM remotely, it says, “No remote license server is available to provide a license.” Even in RD Diagnoser indicates that no license is available / The license mode for the remote host server is not configured / The remote session host server is not configured with any license server. Did I miss something obvious? Specify the product version (Windows Server 2019/2016), license type (RDS Pro User-CAL), and the number of licenses to install on the server.
NOTE: It is very important to keep your purchase emails, paperwork, contract numbers, license numbers, sales key codes, etc. safe if you need to reinstall/migrate/restore licenses in the future. Licensing: Enterprise Agreement Number: 6565792 After activating a license server, you can install Remote Client Access Licenses (RDS CALs). RDS CALs are installed via Microsoft via the Remote License Manager tool. RDS CALs are stored and tracked on the license server on which they were installed. If Microsoft obtains your request to install CALs, they will be sent to your license server in quantity. When a client computer first attempts to connect to a remote session hosting server or remote virtualization hosting server, the RD session hosting server or rd virtualization host recognizes that no license has been issued to the client and looks for a license server to issue a new license to the client`s computer. To complete the license installation, you need the license server ID, which is displayed in the remotedesktop license manager. In addition, you must specify one of the following: a license code from the packaging of retail products, license and authorization numbers of an open license confirmation, or a Microsoft Select, Enterprise, Campus, School, or Service license number.
