Name Explanation Requirements

Hide notifications about TS Licensing problems that affect the terminal server

This policy setting determines whether notifications are displayed on a terminal server when there are problems with TS Licensing that affect the terminal server.

By default, notifications are displayed on a terminal server after you log on as a local administrator, if there are problems with TS Licensing that affect the terminal server. If applicable, a notification will also be displayed that notes the number of days until the licensing grace period for the terminal server will expire.

If you enable this policy setting, these notifications will not be displayed on the terminal server.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, these notifications will be displayed on the terminal server after you log on as a local administrator.

At least Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1

Set the Terminal Services licensing mode

This policy setting allows you to specify the type of Terminal Services client access license (TS CAL) that is required to connect to this terminal server.

You can use this policy setting to select one of two licensing modes: Per User or Per Device.

Per User licensing mode requires that each user account connecting to this terminal server have a TS Per User CAL.

Per Device licensing mode requires that each device connecting to this terminal server have a TS Per Device CAL.

If you enable this policy setting, the licensing mode that you specify takes precedence over the licensing mode that is specified during the installation of Terminal Services or specified in the Terminal Services Configuration tool.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the licensing mode that is specified during the installation of Terminal Services or specified in the Terminal Services Configuration tool is used.

At least Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1

Use the specified Terminal Services license servers

This policy setting allows you to specify the order in which a terminal server attempts to locate Terminal Services license severs.

If you enable this policy setting, a terminal server first attempts to locate the license servers that you specify. If the specified license servers cannot be located, the terminal server will attempt automatic license server discovery.

In the automatic license server discovery process, a terminal server in a Windows Server-based domain attempts to contact a license server in the following order:

  1. License servers that are specified in the Terminal Services Configuration tool

  2. License servers that are published in Active Directory Domain Services

  3. License servers that are installed on domain controllers in the same domain as the terminal server

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the terminal server uses the license server discovery mode specified in the Terminal Services Configuration tool.

At least Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1
