Published: January 8, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

red

For remote clients to successfully connect to internal network resources (computers) through a Remote Desktop Gateway (RD Gateway) server, clients must meet the conditions specified in at least one Remote Desktop connection authorization policy (RD CAP) and Remote Desktop resource authorization policy (RD RAP). RD CAPs specify who can connect to an RD Gateway server and the authentication method that must be used. RD RAPs specify the computers that clients can connect to through an RD Gateway server.

Note: A limit can be set on the RD 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: 6.1
Symbolic Name: AAG_EVENT_INVALID_WINDOWS_LICENSE
Message: The Remote Desktop Gateway service cannot determine the version of Windows that this computer is running. Therefore, users cannot connect to this RD Gateway server. To resolve this issue, please contact Microsoft Product Support Services. The following error occurred: "%2".

Resolve

Restart the RD Gateway server, and if needed, remove and reinstall the Remote Desktop Gateway role service

To resolve this issue, restart the RD Gateway server. If the problem persists, try removing and reinstalling the Remote Desktop 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 RD 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 Remote Desktop 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 Remote Desktop 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 Remote Desktop Services\Role Services, click Remove Role Services.
  3. In the Remove Role Services Wizard, on the Select Role Services page, clear the Remote Desktop Gateway check box, and then click Next.
  4. On the Confirm Removal Selections page, confirm that Remote Desktop Gateway appears in the list of role services to be removed, and then click Remove.
  5. On the Removal Results page, Remote Desktop Services (not Remote Desktop Gateway) will appear, indicating that a restart is pending. You must restart the server to finish removing the Remote Desktop 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 Remote Desktop Gateway role service.
  9. The Resume Configuration Wizard will open and the removal of the Remote Desktop Gateway role service will be completed.
  10. On the Removal Results page, confirm that the removal succeeded for the Remote Desktop Gateway role service.
