  • Hi Gyan,

    Which version of client RDP you are using in your environment?
    Did you receive any particular Event ID during this issue?

    Here for your issue I found something to let u know, if licensing mode on the terminal server is set to Per Device but the license server is configured to issue only Per User CALs, then only temporary Per Device licenses are issued from the available pool of licenses. The license cannot upgraded. 

    Please check the license is properly configured and activated. If not then you can contact MS clearing house or try to change the terminal server licensing mode.

    Please refer below link for more information.
    The remote session was disconnected because the local computer's client access license could not be upgraded or renewed

    You need to verify the terminal server because it can’t able to locate the license server.

    The terminal server cannot locate the license server

    Hope it helps!

  • it sounds like your machines may be cloned - your clients have they been deployed from a sysprep image?
