Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a windows 2003 standard server that we've always used the Remote Desktop Admin (max 2 sessions). Yesterday, I enabled terminal services on the server, to look into expanding that max sessions.

After enabling it, I an no longer access the Remote Desktop Admin. It tells me:

The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license.  

Shouldn't I still get my 2 sessions for Remote admin?

Thanks!

You should be able to connect if you pass the /admin switch to the remote destop client.

This worked. Is there any other way to get around this, or is this it? –  bladefist Jan 18 '12 at 16:18
