Remote Desktop Services Client Access License (RDS CAL) Availability

Published: January 8, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When a client—either a user or a device—connects to a Remote Destkop Session Host server, the RD Session Host server determines if a Remote Desktop Services client access license (RDS CAL) is needed. The RD Session Host server then requests an RDS CAL from a Remote Desktop license server on behalf of the client attempting to connect to the RD Session Host server. If an appropriate RDS CAL is available from a license server, the RDS CAL is issued to the client, and the client will be able to connect to the RD Session Host server.

RDS CALs are installed onto a license server by using the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager tool.

This Remote Desktop license server is too busy to notify other Remote Desktop license servers about the number of Remote Desktop Services client access licenses (RDS CALs) that it has in its database. It will attempt to notify other Remote Desktop license servers later. If the problem persists, free up available memory if memory is low on the Remote Desktop license server, and identify and resolve any issues with network connectivity, specifically with firewall configuration. Problems with remote procedure calls (RPCs) might also cause this issue.
