Hi all,

As a blogger completely focused on Microsoft technologies, it was a fun year of writing about all those interesting and ever changing products and services. As we almost end the year 2016 and are preparing for 2017 to start, I wanted to make a list of all the blog posts I wrote throughout the twelve months of 2016. During the year, I’ve published 26 blog posts mostly about Azure, the System Center Suite and Hyper-V. Below you can find them all divided by technology.

An RDP connection to the Azure RemoteApp custom VM fails with the following error: “No Remote Desktop License Servers available”

3:35 pm in Azure, Azure PowerShell, Azure RemoteApp, RDP, W2K12R2 by Wim Matthyssen

A while ago I was setting up Azure RemoteApp at a client. After creating the custom image, I was unable to connect to the newly created Azure IaaS virtual machine (VM) with RDP. The below Remote Desktop Connection error popped up:

The error is caused because the 120-day licensing grace period for the Remote Desktop Server role has expired and you need to install licenses. Which in my opinion is really strange because it’s a new VM created from the Windows Server RDSHwO365P image available at the Azure Marketplace. This being said below you can found out how I finally was able to connect to the VM with RDP.

1) First of all, save a local copy of the RDP file from the Azure portal. I saved it under the C:\Temp folder on my laptop

2) Open Windows PowerShell ISE as an Administrator and run the following PowerShell command prompt to connect. This command will disable licensing for just that connection (change AZUTST by your own RDP file name):

Be aware that only 2 connections are possible at the same time when using /admin.

3) Like you can see below, by using /admin I was able to connect to the VM
