you just have to specify the Remote Desktop Licensing server and License Mode on your Remote Desktop Session Host (on W2012 R2 server) and then the problem will be fixed.

Follow the instruction below to configure /specify RD Licensing server and License Mode :

> From W2012 R2 server, from Modern UI, type : GPEDIT.MSC

> Navigate until : Computer Configuration | Administrative Template | Windows Components | Remote Desktop Services | Remote Desktop Session Host | Licensing

> You have to configure the two following parameters :

The first parameter (Use the specified ...) must be enabled and you have to specify the hostname of the RD Licensing server. if you are using a standalone server, so you have to enter the W2012 R2 RDS Server name.

The second parameter (Set the Remote ...) must be enabled and you have to choose the License Mode corresponding to RDS CALs you bought.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE A RDS Per-Device CAL, this will resolve your problem.

If the RDS CAL you bought are a Per-User Mode, in this case, you have to deploy an Active Directory domain because the CAL RDS that will be assigned to remote users must be stored on MS Active directory database.

Hope that can you helps u.
