When you use Terminal Server client to connect to a Windows Server 2003 that meets both of the following conditions:
· Windows Server 2003 Terminal Licensing Server with Per Device Client Access License.
· Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server running as Per Device.
it generates a Event id 1004:
Event ID: 1004
Computer: Computer Name
Description: The terminal server cannot issue a client license. It was unable to issue the license due to a changed (mismatched) client license, insufficient memory, or an internal error.
The Terminal Server will discover the Terminal Licensing Server but still the Terminal Licensing Server won't issue the Client Access License to the client.
Additionally, even if you delete the X509 Certificate under
You would also see the Licensing Server name in this key.
and discover the Licensing Server this key would be generated back indicating that the Terminal Server is able to discover the Licensing Server but still will not issue the key.
This happens for the following reasons:
· The Everyone Group is missing from the “Access this computer from the network” User Rights Assignments.
· The Terminal Server cannot download the CAL for the client.
To resolve this issue, in the User Rights Assignments at the Domain Controller level or at local policy on the Terminal Licensing Server, add the Everyone Group to the “Access this computer from the network”, and then reboot.
To diagnose this issue:
Run LSDiag on the Terminal Server and the Licensing Server you will see that the Everyone Group is missing from the "Access this computer from the network” User Rights Assignments.
If a simultaneous netmon traces is taken between the Terminal Server and Terminal Licensing Server while connecting to the Terminal Server, you would find;
Source Destination SMB Session Setup AndX Response, Error: STATUS_LOGON_TYPE_NOT_GRANTED
NT Status: STATUS_LOGON_TYPE_NOT_GRANTED (0xc000015b)
Since the Terminal Server does not have this right it is not able to download the CAL for the client.
