Windows 2012 RDS Configuration 1


Although I have purchased 5 CALs for my 2012 Remote Desktop Server, they expired today and no one could use it.  Very odd.  On closer inspection I had an error saying:

Set the mode on the Remote Desktop Session Host to either Per User or Per Device.

Fine, I will.  So I went off to find where in the GUI you can do this.  After 30 minutes of fruitless effort, I caved.  Everywhere on the web tells you where to set this for 2008, which it does at initial configuration but on 2012 I really struggled.  Right, PowerShell it is then:

import-module RemoteDesktopServices

get-RDLicenseConfiguration

It spat this at me:

Mode LicenseServer

—- ————-
NotConfigured {XXXXXBES10.xxxxxxx.local}

Right, so, just set that then:

Set-RDLicenseConfiguration -Mode PerUser

And voila, fixed it.

    The very heart of your writing while aaeiprpng reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly end up being fascinated.
