Remote Desktop Licensing (RD Licensing) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have some question regarding RDP Licensing.

    I have one license server with about 100 RDP license and few jump server. I added jump servers names to correct group on License server and it is working fine. 

    The Question is:

    If I add some AD group to remote desktop users on Jump server should I add same group to remote desktop users on License server or not ?

  • Hi,

    Agree with cthivierge.

    When a user or a device connects to an RD Session Host server, the RD Session Host server determines if an RDS CAL is needed. The RD Session Host server then requests an RDS CAL from the Remote Desktop license server. If an appropriate RDS CAL is available from a license server, the RDS CAL is issued to the client, and the client is able to connect to the RD Session Host server and from there to the desktop or apps they're trying to use.

    Add the group/user to Remote Desktop Users group and they should have the permission to establish remote session. Or, you can complete it via UGI on Connection Broker:
    Collection Properties – User Groups - Add

  • If i understand, you want to know if you need to give access to the user account (within AD group) to the license server, am i right ?

    If it was the question, then no.  The user does not call the License Server.  Only the RDSH Server will call the License Server to get a license for a user.
