What is RDS and Why Do You Need CALs?




RDS is a feature of Windows Server that allows users to access remote applications and desktops over a network. With RDS, you can deploy and manage applications and desktops centrally on one or more RD Session Host servers. Users can connect to these servers using various devices, such as PCs, laptops, tablets, or smartphones.


To use RDS, you need to install and activate CALs on a license server. A CAL is a license that grants a user the right to access an RD Session Host server. There are two types of CALs: per device and per user. A per device CAL allows one device to access any RD Session Host server. A per user CAL allows one user to access any RD Session Host server from any device. You need to choose the type of CAL that suits your needs and budget.


CALs are not included with Windows Server. You need to buy them separately from Microsoft or an authorized reseller. The price of a CAL depends on the type, the edition, and the number of licenses you need. For example, a Windows Server 2022 RDS per user CAL costs $164.99. You also need to activate the CALs on a license server using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager, a tool that comes with Windows Server.


What is rdscallicensekeygen and How Does It Work?




rdscallicensekeygen is a tool that can generate license keys for RDS CALs for free. It is not an official product of Microsoft or any other company. It is a hack that exploits a vulnerability in the RD Licensing protocol. The tool can generate license keys for both per device and per user CALs, for any edition of Windows Server, and for any number of licenses you want.


rdscallicensekeygen works by creating fake license keys that look like genuine ones. The tool uses a random number generator and a cryptographic algorithm to produce the license keys. The license keys are then encoded in a format that can be recognized by the license server. The tool also creates fake certificates and signatures to make the license keys appear valid and authentic.


The advantage of using rdscallicensekeygen is that you can save money and time by not buying or activating CALs from Microsoft. You can also use RDS without any limitations or restrictions. The disadvantage of using rdscallicensekeygen is that it is illegal, unethical, and risky. You are violating the terms and conditions of Windows Server and RDS. You are also exposing yourself to potential security threats, such as malware, viruses, or spyware. You may also face legal consequences, such as fines, lawsuits, or criminal charges.


How to Install and Activate RDS CALs Using rdscallicensekeygen




If you decide to use rdscallicensekeygen to generate RDS CALs, you need to follow these steps:



  • Install the RD Licensing role on a server. You can use any server that runs Windows Server 2012 or later. You can also use the same server that runs the RD Session Host role, but it is recommended to use a separate server for security and performance reasons.



  • Activate the license server using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. You need to connect to the internet and provide some information, such as your name, company name, and country or region. You can choose any activation method, such as automatic, web browser, or telephone.



  • Download rdscallicensekeygen from a reliable source. You can find the tool on various websites or forums, but be careful not to download any malicious files or programs. You can also scan the tool with an antivirus software before using it.



  • Run rdscallicensekeygen as an administrator on the same server where you installed the RD Licensing role. You will see a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows you to generate license keys for RDS CALs.



  • Select the type of CAL you want to generate: per device or per user. Then select the edition of Windows Server you are using: Standard or Datacenter. Then enter the number of licenses you want to generate: from 1 to 9999.



  • Click on Generate License Keys button. The tool will create license keys for RDS CALs in a few seconds. You will see the license keys displayed on the screen in hexadecimal format.



  • Copy the license keys from rdscallicensekeygen and paste them into Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. You need to open Remote Desktop Licensing Manager on the same server where you installed the RD Licensing role. Then right-click on your license server name and select Install Licenses. Then follow the wizard steps and enter the license keys when prompted.



Congratulations! You have successfully installed and activated RDS CALs using rdscallicensekeygen.


How to Verify and Manage RDS CALs Using rdscallicensekeygen




After you install and activate RDS CALs using rdscallicensekeygen, you may want to verify that they are valid and working properly. You may also want to monitor and manage the license usage and availability on your license server. Here are some tips on how to do that:



  • To verify that the license keys are valid and working properly, you can use the Review Configuration option in Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. This option will show you the status of your license server, the type and number of licenses installed, and the expiration date of the licenses. You can also use the Diagnose option to check for any errors or warnings related to your license server.



  • To monitor and manage the license usage and availability on your license server, you can use the Remote Desktop Licensing Diagnoser tool. This tool will show you the number of available and issued licenses for each type of CAL, the name and ID of the devices or users that have been issued licenses, and the date and time of the license issuance. You can also use the Remote Desktop Licensing Reporter tool to generate reports on the license usage and availability on your license server.



To troubleshoot common issues with RDS CALs using rdscallicensekeygen, you can use the following methods:


  • If you encounter an error message that says "The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license", you may need to configure your RD Session Host server to point to your license server. You can do this by using Group Policy or Registry Editor.



  • If you encounter an error message that says "The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop client access licenses available for this computer", you may need to delete the registry key that stores the CAL information on your device. You can do this by using Registry Editor or Command Prompt.



  • If you encounter an error message that says "The remote session was disconnected because the Remote Desktop client access license stored on this computer has been modified", you may need to reactivate your license server using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. You can do this by right-clicking on your license server name and selecting Reactivate Server.

These solutions may offer more features, flexibility, and scalability than RDS.


FAQs




Here are some frequently asked questions related to the topic:



  • What is the difference between RDS and VDI?



RDS and VDI are both technologies that allow users to access remote desktops over a network. However, they have some differences in how they deliver and manage the desktops. RDS uses a shared model, where multiple users connect to the same RD Session Host server and share its resources. VDI uses a dedicated model, where each user connects to a separate virtual machine (VM) that runs on a hypervisor. RDS is more cost-effective and easier to deploy than VDI, but VDI offers more customization and isolation than RDS.


  • How many RDS CALs do I need?



The number of RDS CALs you need depends on the type of CAL you choose: per device or per user. If you choose per device CALs, you need one CAL for each device that connects to an RD Session Host server. If you choose per user CALs, you need one CAL for each user who connects to an RD Session Host server from any device. You should choose the type of CAL that matches your usage scenario and licensing budget.


  • How long do RDS CALs last?



RDS CALs are valid for as long as you own them, unless they expire or are revoked. Per device CALs have an expiration date that is set by default to 52-89 days after they are issued. You can renew them by connecting to an RD Session Host server before they expire. Per user CALs do not have an expiration date, but they can be revoked by the license server if they are not used for a long time. You can reclaim them by using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.


  • Can I use RDS CALs for multiple servers?



Yes, you can use RDS CALs for multiple servers, as long as they are in the same domain or workgroup. You can install and activate RDS CALs on one license server and configure other RD Session Host servers to use the same license server. You can also use the same RDS CALs for different editions of Windows Server, such as Standard or Datacenter.


  • Can I transfer RDS CALs to another license server?



Yes, you can transfer RDS CALs to another license server, but you need to deactivate the old license server first. You can do this by using Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. Then you can install and activate the RDS CALs on the new license server using the same method as before.
