Windows Server 2012 Rdp License Crack

If you have more than one TS like I do you will want to use a Licensing server. This allows you to share your client TS licenses across all of your terminal servers making it easier to purchase and manage your license needs.

windows server 2012 rdp license crack

Why does it always seem like MS can take a 5 second process and make it into 10 min? Thanks for saving me the headache on this one. Due to some Citrix restrictions, I am only just now making 2012 terminal servers for the first time.

My Environment: I setup a 2012 Domain controller (DC01) and a 2012 RDS server (TS01). The domain controller has the RD Licensing Manager and RD Licensing Diagnoser installed. The TS01 server has all the other RDS roles installed.

I also pointed the TS01 server to the license server (DC01) but I get this error when adding it:The license server specified is not valid. Verify the server name and specify a valid server name before saving the settings.

When I run the RD License Diagnoser from either server, I get the below error. Does anyone know what I'm missing? Is the 2012 server really looking for 2008 RDS CALs??? I didn't think that was possible.

It seems to me you install windows 2008 or 2008 R2 CALs in Windows server 2012. Quoted from this link "In other words, you could not user TS 2008 CAL or RDS 2008 CAL for server 2012 Remote Desktop Session Host server".

I'm not sure I'm understanding your setup. You say you have a 2012 RDS server. What RDS roles do you have setup? RDS in 2012 is not for the faint of heart, it's not straight forward and the documentation is lacking severely.

Thanks for your response. Your right, setting up a 2012 Session based RDS server is a lot more difficult than 2008 was. I installed all the roles for session based RDS services (except for the License manager) on my TS01 and installed the RD License manager on the Domain controller (DC01). I also edited the Deployment Properties to point the RD License to DC01. I get the below error when I do so.

Select the rebuilt the licensing server option and hit next. It will ask you to confirm that you wish to delete all licenses on the server so make sure you have the info needed to reinstall the RDS CALs.

To be licensed to access a Windows desktop OS VM on a server - each client access device needs a Windows VDA license to be licensed for the VM. Windows VDA is included with Windows Client SA and Windows Intune, so if you have either of those licenses you are good and already have Windows VDA coverage.

How are you delivering the desktops VMs from the server to the clients? If you are using Remote Desktop Services Opens a new windowto deliver the OS to the client - yes you need a RDS CAL on top of the Windows VDA license.

So say someone is using a windows 7 desktop without SA (so weve already purchased that client license) to access a dedicated windows 7 VM (have to purchase another license for that) which means theyd need a VDA license, which is not only one shot but a yearly repetitive cost, in addition to the per client license of the way its being access (RDP, VMWARE, CITRIX) is this correct?

Licensing a VM on a server as compared to a physical OS is a completely different set of requirements. The OEM license has a lot of restrictions on licensing and SA and Windows VDA are Microsoft's licenses options for a more flexible way to use the Windows OS.

"...............Microsoft licensing policies for Windows Server Remote Desktop Services (including the components that are included in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012) require that, in addition to a Windows Server Client Access License, Microsoft Core CAL Suite, or Microsoft Enterprise CAL Suite, you must acquire a Windows Server 2012 RDS CAL for each user or device that directly or indirectly accesses the server software to interact with a remote graphical user interface (GUI) (using the Windows Server 2012 Remote Desktop Services functionality or other technology). Remote Desktop Services functionality is defined as those features or services that are running when enabling the Remote Desktop Services role and/or role service(s) in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012. This includes but is not limited to Remote Desktop Gateway, RemoteApp network software, Remote Desktop Web Access, Remote Desktop Connection broker, Remote Desktop session host, Remote Desktop Virtualization host, and RemoteFX......................."

The Windows VDA license (or through Windows Client SA) is the license required to access a Windows desktop OS VM from a server. The Windows VDA/SA license is not available under SPLA (as to provide a Windows desktop OS VM from a sever as a service). However, you can provide a Windows Server VM as a server to a customer through RDS.

You can find an OEM version of Windows 8 Pro for $150. However, the OEM/FPP license is not to be used as a VM license for a server. Technically you can 'assign' it to a server, it would be for local use only and any client devices that accesses the VM would require the Windows VDA license.

Only the primary user of the licensed device may remotely access his/her device. With server hardware, there is no primary user, therefore is considered a shared device. If you were to assign a retail copy of Windows desktop OS (XP, Vista, W7, W8, etc) to a server - the retail copy of Windows could only be used on the device. The retail license does not permit remote access from any user other than the licensed user. The Windows VDA would be the license required.

I hate to drag this back up but the one question I have is still not answered. If I have 5 Windows 7 VM's on a Server (that is backed by Server 2012 R2 Datacenter which does not matter), then how do you license *those* virtual machines? I understand the access rights licenses for example say my user has a win 8.1 upgrade with SA assigned to them.

You dont have to have RDS licenses if you used windows 8.1 VMs on the Server 2012 R2 Datacenter edition and connected with those VM's using those VM's built in Remote Desktop service and not through the server's services. You can change the listening RDP ports to 3391, 3392, 3393, 3394 etc for the VMs and call them directly from your devices with RDP client (windows or Mac).

Great thread here and I need to ask a very specific question in relation to RDS CAL requirement with a VDI solution. Customer is using a Server 2012 R2 w/Hyper-V role and web services role installed. RDS Role is not installed and none of the RDS Services are running - no connection broker or RDS gateway, etc. Server has 10 Windows 7 Pro VM's running on the server and they use thin-client via RDP connection straight to the VM desktop and it works great. So no 3rd party services and not using any of the RDS services on the main server. In this scenario is an RDS CAL required? They are currently buying qty-10 VDI subscriptions and qty-10 RDS CAL's but they are not using the RDS CAL's and have been told there is no reason to buy them.
