there are no Terminal Server client access licenses

[Window Title]
Remote Desktop Disconnected

[Content]
The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server client access licenses available for this computer.
Please contact the server administrator.

[OK] [Help]

This is a bummer, especially if you are the server administrator.

At this point you still can use the mstsc /admin /v:myserver command to reconnect and dispose idle sessions to resume normal operation.

[Window Title]
Remote Desktop Connection Usage

[Content]
MSTSC [<connection file>] [/v:<server[:port]>] [/admin] [/f[ullscreen]]
[/w:<width> /h:<height>] [/public] | [/span] [/edit “connection file”] [/migrate]

“connection file” — Specifies the name of an .rdp file for the connection.

/v:<server[:port]> — Specifies the remote computer to which you want to
connect.

/admin — Connects you to the session for administering a server.

/f — Starts Remote Desktop in full-screen mode.

/w:<width> — Specifies the width of the Remote Desktop window.

/h:<height> — Specifies the height of the Remote Desktop window.

/public — Runs Remote Desktop in public mode.

/span — Matches the remote desktop width and height with the local
virtual desktop, spanning across multiple monitors if necessary. To span
across monitors, the monitors must all have the same height and be aligned
vertically.

/edit — Opens the specified .rdp connection file for editing.

/migrate — Migrates legacy connection files that were created with
Client Connection Manager to new .rdp connection files.

[OK]

Update: But if you are extremly unlucky, you wont be able to connect to it at all.

Your Remote Desktop session has ended, possibly for one of the following reasons:
The administrator has ended the session.
An error occurred while the connection was being established.
A network problem occurred.
For help solving the problem, see “Troubleshoot Remote Desktop problems” in Help and Support.

I had to attach a keyboard and a screen to the server just to realize a reboot would probably fix the issue – which it did. So if in doubt reboot.

  4. I stumbled upon your post when looking for a resolution to this error message. However, my situation was that it was user trying to remote into a Terminal Server and getting this error message.

    The solution that eventually worked for me was to delete the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing and then reconnect again and that worked for me. I don’t claim credit for the solution, found it here (http://thisishelpful.com/fix-remote-session-disconnected-because-remote-desktop-client-access-licenses.html)

    Thought I would post a comment here in case it helps others out as well.

    Thanks,
