So I have installed a 2019 RDS server a while back, we still need to add licenses to it. Now I find out that it seems that the grace period has expired but everything continues to work just fine. I don't even get any popup messages telling me how many days RDS grace period is remaining. I cannot find a way to get this pop up showing as Administrator.
I ran the command below to find the days remaining:
wmic /namespace:\\root\CIMV2\TerminalServices PATH Win32_TerminalServiceSetting WHERE (__CLASS !="") CALL GetGracePeriodDays
It returns a value DaysLeft = 0
It seems to me that the grace period is now over without having any licenses installed and everything still runs great.
Also running TLSBLN.EXE does nothing on Server 2019.. It usually pops up the grace period balloon but this might only work on 2016?
I would expect RDS connections to be denied now that the grace period is actually over and there are no licenses available.. Am I missing something? I will add licenses but now I wonder if the grace period is actually over or not.. Can't seem to really find it on 2019
