Users can connect to an RD Session Host server to run programs, save files, and use network resources on that server. When a user disconnects from a session, all processes running in the session, including applications, will continue to run on the RD Session Host server.

The user logon mode on the RD Session Host server can be configured to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server. You might want to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server when you are planning to take the RD Session Host server offline for maintenance or to install new applications.

Resolve

Specify a Remote Desktop license server

To resolve this issue, specify a Remote Desktop license server on the RD Session Host server.

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

To specify a Remote Desktop license server:

  1. On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Confiiguration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.
  2. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.
  3. Under Licensing, double-click Remote Desktop license servers.
  4. In the Remote Desktop license servers area, click Add.
  5. In the License sever name or IP address box, type the server name or IP address of the Remote Desktop license server.
  6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

Note:  You can also specify a Remote Desktop license server on the RD Session Host server by using Group Policy.

  • To specify a Remote Desktop license server on the RD Session Host server by using Group Policy, enable the Use the specified Remote Desktop license servers Group Policy setting. This Group Policy setting is located in Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Licensing. Note that the Group Policy setting will take precedence over the setting configured in Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.
  • To configure the Group Policy setting in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), use the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). To configure the Group Policy setting locally on an RD Session Host server, use the Local Group Policy Editor. For more information about configuring Group Policy settings, see either the Local Group Policy Editor Help (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=143317) or the GPMC Help (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=143867) in the Windows Server 2008 R2 Technical Library.
