Event ID 8196 — Remote Desktop Services Per User Client Access License Tracking and Reporting
Published: January 8, 2010
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
In Windows Server 2008 R2, you can use the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager tool to create (generate) reports to track the Remote Desktop Services Per User client access licenses (RDS Per User CALs) that have been issued by a Remote Desktop license server. RDS Per User CAL tracking and reporting is supported only in domain-joined scenarios because the information about the RDS Per User CAL that has been issued to a user is stored as part of the user account in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
For RDS Per User CAL tracking and reporting to work, the computer account for the license server must be a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group in AD DS. If the license server is installed on a domain controller, the Network Service account must also be a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||The computer account for the Remote Desktop license server was successfully added to the Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory Domain Services during the installation of RD Licensing.|
This is a normal condition. No further action is required.
