    Dear colleges, I'm seeking your help in resolving a weird issue with Remote Desktop.

    The Remote Desktop Management service gives the following error message any time it is attempted to start:

    "The Remote Management Service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

    The Event Viewer error message is as follows:

    "The Remote Desktop Management service failed to start. Error code: 0x88250001"

    Whenever I connect to the server with RD I get error message that the Remote Desktop Licensing Server isn't configured and that the RD trill will expire in N-days. The server is up to date updates wise and has been licensed for 5 RD CALs. The server hosts DNS server and has AD DS role installed, is virtualized to have one Hyper-V server.

    I read some blogs about having both DNS and AD DS on one box is a bad sea and a root cause of the issue. Well, that very well may be, but for me that's an option as I'm not going to get a box to just host DNS. There should a solution to this as I shouldn't only one suffering from this issue.

    I also read about KB2871777 - Servicing stack update supposedly addressign this issue. Well, it's on my system and the issue is there too. :)

    Will I loose ability to RD when the trial expires or it's just another misleading MS message that can be ignored?

    How do I mend Remote Desktop Management service to start?

    Appreciate your help!

    The solution tuned out to be a rediculuous one! All you need to do is to delete registry GracePeriod key group from TerminalServerLicensing branch. Did it the RD stopped giving this message anytime I logged in and let me log in aftertrial had expired. The Remote Desktop Management service still won't start. I guess some RD features may not be available, but at least I can work without worries of being unable to log in there one day.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Windows Server forum.

    Can administrators perfectly connect to RDS environment?

    In meantime please check that you have properly configured and activated RD License role service and install RDS CAL on it. It might also possible that you have configured RD License server but it server can’t find it and giving you error due to certificate also. Please check that you have properly configured certificate on your RDS Server. Try to install and update below hotfix for License related issue.

    If you have configured both RDS and AD DS on single server then also you may find some error reading this. If so please try to setup both roles on different server and check the result. In addition to this, please check below articles.

    Thanks for the advises. When I go to RD Licensing Manager it shows successful activation of 5 licenses. I'll try patching the server up with the fixes you suggested, but like I've told the server is up to date updates wise. These fixes are part of updates that are on the server, I'm sure. I'll try installing them anyway to see may be those fixes installed got overwritten by sequential updates.
