Change the Discovery Scope of a Remote Desktop License Server

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use Review Configuration in the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager tool to change the discovery scope of the license server after the RD Licensing role service has been installed on the computer.

noteNote
If the license server is a member of a workgroup, and then you join the license server to an Active Directory domain, the discovery scope for the license server is automatically changed from Workgroup to Domain.

Use the following procedure to change the discovery scope of a license server by using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Licensing server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.
