Difference between deployed rd license server and rd license server in deployment properties?

    Question

  • In a very simple windows 2012 r2 RDS server there are two setting which seem almost the same. If someone could explain the difference that would be helpful.

    Both are accessible from the RDS Overview panel.

    #1 is found in the Deployment Overview panel where there is a RD Licensing icon. If one adds a RD License Server via that icon, the server will appear in the adjacent Deployment Servers list.

    #2 is exposed via Tasks list when you choose Edit Deployment Properties. The four deployment properties that are exposed there include an entry for RD Licensing, which allows you to again specify the FQDN for a RD License Server and to choose between licensing per device or per user.

    But based on my knowledge, i also want to try my best to answer your question.

    #1 is found in the Deployment Overview panel where there is a RD Licensing icon. If one adds a RD License Server via that icon, the server will appear in the adjacent Deployment Servers list. Reply:"RD licensing"icon only function is used to add one or more RDLS servers to RDS enviornment.

     

    #2 is exposed via Tasks list when you choose Edit Deployment Properties. The four deployment properties that are exposed there include an entry for RD Licensing, which allows you to again specify the FQDN for a RD License Server and to choose between licensing per device or per user . Reply:"Edit Deployment Properties" function is used to specify rds licensing mode and add RD license server then set RDLS server licensing order.

    Best Regards,
