Improvements to the License Manager User Interface to easily spot configuration issues

 

When you are setting up a license server in the Domain or Enterprise mode, you could run into configuration errors. Currently there is no easy way to find such errors. With the improvements we have made to License Manager, you will be alerted in the License Manager UI if there are errors in your configuration. In addition you will also be pointed to ways in which you can remedy this situation. Examples of configuration errors that the License Manager will help point out are –

  1. The License Server is in the Enterprise mode but not published in Active Directory. This means that the License Server will not be auto-discoverable.
  2. The License Server has a Group Policy set to “Restrict Access to specified Terminal Servers”. However, the local group “Terminal Server Computers” is not present.
  3. The License Server is in Domain mode but not installed on a Domain Controller. This means that the License Server will not be auto-discoverable.
  4. The License Server is not part of the “Terminal Server License Servers” group in Active Directory. This would prevent per-user licensing from working.
