red

For remote clients to successfully connect to internal network resources (computers) through a Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) server, clients must meet the conditions specified in at least one Terminal Services connection authorization policy (TS CAP) and Terminal Services resource authorization policy (TS RAP). TS CAPs specify who can connect to a TS Gateway server and the authentication method that must be used. TS RAPs specify the computers that clients can connect to through a TS Gateway server. Note that a limit can be set on the TS Gateway server to restrict the maximum number of simultaneous client connections.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 1001
Source: Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Gateway
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: AAG_EVENT_INVALID_WINDOWS_LICENSE
Message: The Terminal Services Gateway service cannot determine the version of Windows that this computer is running. Therefore, users cannot connect to this TS Gateway server. To resolve this issue, please contact Microsoft Product Support Services. The following error occurred: "%2".

Resolve

Restart the TS Gateway server, and if needed, remove and reinstall the TS Gateway role service

To resolve this issue, restart the TS Gateway server. If the problem persists, try removing and reinstalling the TS Gateway role service.

The failure to determine the version of Windows that the computer is running might be caused by one of the following issues:

  • There is a problem with the Application Programming Interface (API) that provides the Windows version number (the API timed out).
  • There is a problem with a hotfix or other update that was applied to the TS Gateway server (for example, if a hotfix or other update is not a genuine Microsoft software update). For more information, see the Microsoft Genuine Software Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=102293).

Remove the TS Gateway role service

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in the local Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To remove the TS Gateway role service:

  1. Open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the Server Manager console tree, click Roles. In the details pane, under Terminal Services\Role Services, click Remove Role Services.
  3. In the Remove Role Services Wizard, on the Select Role Services page, clear theTS Gateway check box, and then click Next.
  4. On the Confirm Removal Selections page, confirm that TS Gateway appears in the list of role services to be removed, and then click Remove.
  5. On the Removal Results page, Terminal Services (not TS Gateway) will appear, indicating that a restart is pending. You must restart the server to finish removing the TS Gateway role service.
  6. Click Close.
  7. You will be prompted to choose whether you want to restart the server now or later. Click Yes to restart the server immediately. Click No to restart the server later.
  8. After you restart the server, log on to the server by using the same user account that you used to log on to the server previously, when you began removing the TS Gateway role service.
  9. The Resume Configuration Wizard will open and the removal of the TS Gateway role service will be completed.
  10. On the Removal Results page, confirm that the removal succeeded for the TS Gateway role service.
  11. Click Close.
