Remote Desktop License Server Database Availability

Published: January 8, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When the Remote Desktop Licensing role service is installed, a database is created in which to hold information about the Remote Desktop Services client access licenses (RDS CALs) that are installed onto the license server.

The location of the RD Licensing database can be specified during the Remote Desktop Licensing role service installation. The database location must be a local folder on the computer on which the Remote Desktop Licensing role service is being installed. By default, the RD Licensing database is located in the %systemroot%\system32\lserver folder, where %systemroot% is the folder in which the operating system is installed, which is, by default, c:\windows. You can confirm the location of the RD Licensing database by using Review Configuration in the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager tool.
