mac osx RDP licence problem

quick fox for licence problems with mac osx – i just remove the licence and test from then on…

from a terminal :
rm -rf /Users/Shared/Microsoft/RDC\ Crucial\ Server\ Information/RDCGlobal\ Data
sudo rm -rf /Users/Shared/Microsoft/RDC\ Crucial\ Server\ Information/*
try again – no need to change the machine name like the dreaded windows 😉

Make sure you’ve installed “Terminal Services Licensing”. By the way, this method only makes sense if you need to use Terminal Services in Application Mode, which is the one that requires licensing.

The idea is quite simple.

First, disconnect all users from the terminal. If you need to do this remotely, you can also disconnect yourself, and access the files remotely.

Go to %WINDIR%\system32\lserver

Notice the file TSLIC.edb. Rename it to tslic.old

In every client computer, remove the CAL TS registry keys, located at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing

Restart your server.

Or change laptop /computer name
