Remote Desktop License Server Security Group Configuration

Published: January 8, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When the Remote Desktop 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 RDS CALs from Remote Desktop Session Host servers whose computer accounts are members of this group if the Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\RD 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 Remote Desktop Licensing role service is removed from the server, the Terminal Server Computers local group is deleted.
