Remote Desktop Error after Installing Remote Desktop Service

If you install Remote Desktop Services on the server, but you do not have any CAL Licenses on the service, you will receive an error for remote connection.

The Remote Desktop Service is for hosting your own RDP Service for groups of server typically, using AD.

To resolve, close any RDP sessions on your computer, then hit Windows Key + R to open a run prompt and input this; mstsc /admin

Then try to connect as per usual. That should ignore the RDS licensing service and let you connect. Once you connect, go into Server Manager and remove the Remote Desktop Services or purchase and install CAL Licenses for the service from Microsoft.

Installing Microsoft CALS’s

You will need to add the Remote Desktop role first.

After doing so you can continue installing the CAL license following these steps.

1. Click on Start->Administrative Tools->Remote Desktop Services->Remote Desktop Licensing Manager
2. Click on “All Servers” and right click on the server you want to add the RDS CALs to and click on “Properties.”
3. For connection method, select “Automatic Connection” and select your country.
4. Insert the required information and click “OK.”
5. Right click on the server again and go to “Activate Server.”
6. Click through the menu until it asks for the license type. Select “Open License” and click okay.
7. Input Authorization and License number and the amount of CALs you purchased.
8. This will activate your RDS CALs and you are done!

The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license

It could be that a session was left connected. If thats the case I’ll try using the admin console command and see if I can get connected with it.

On you local computer, go to Start -> Run then paste this and hit enter

mstsc.exe /admin

It’ll prompt for IP and then user/pass. It looks like it opens Remote Desktop Connection, but really its the “admin console”

Cisco IPSec VPN Client is not supported on Windows 8 or Windows 10 and Error 27850

Cisco IPSec VPN Client is not supported on Windows 8 or Windows 10 unless you do a registry key edit.

Cisco VPN client (5.0.07.0440 for x64, 5.0.07.0410 for x86) is working for some people. But for that
you need to apply a small Registry workaround as below.

1. Open Registry editor regedit in Run prompt
2. Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA
3. Select the Display Name to modify, and remove the leading characters from the value data value as shown below,

For x86 machine,

"@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” 

Change to to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”

For x64 machine,

"@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” 

Change to to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”

Then try the connection. If you get the following error:

Error: Secure VPN connection terminated by Peer. Reason 433 (Reason not specified by peer)

Perform the following:

  1. Remove the Cisco VPN client and any other VPN clients
  2. Install SonicWall VPN found here.
  3. Install Cisco VPN 5.0.07.0440 found here. You will need to extract the .exe to a folder, then run the .MSI installer found inside the archive.
  4. Apply the above Windows registry fix if you receive the error for enabling the adapter.
  5. Re-import your .pcf

That’s it! The SonicWall VPN client installs the DNE LightWeight Filter required for the Cisco client to work on Windows 10. You should now be able to connect without any peer errors and return to your everyday scheduled programming.
