Event ID 71 — Terminal Services License Server Security Group Configuration

Updated: January 5, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

red

When the TS Licensing role service is installed on the server, the Terminal Server Computers local group is created. The license server will respond only to requests for TS CALs from terminal servers whose computer accounts are members of this group if the Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\TS Licensing\License server security group Group Policy setting has been enabled and applied to the license server. By default, the Terminal Server Computers local group is empty.

When the TS Licensing role service is removed from the server, the Terminal Server Computers local group is deleted.
