Once in a while when connecting to customer’s system using remote desktop published via Citrix, I get the following error message: The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server License Servers available to provide a license. Please contact the server administrator.
And because it doesn’t happen too often, each time I end up searching for a fix for this issue. Never again! 🙂 Let’s write it down, and let internet remember.
The Error: The remote session was disconnected because tehre are no Terminal Server License Servers available to provide a license. Please contact the server administrator.
1. Run REGEDIT
2. Take a backup (Export) of folder [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing]
3. Delete [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing] folder
4. Reboot your computer
5. Run “Remote Desktop Connection” shortcut as Administrator (this will recreate MSLicensing folder in registry editor)
