Connecting to an Expired Terminal Server with No License Server

If your Terminal Server / Remote Desktop Server is unable to find a TS license server and is passed it's 120 day grace period you will not be able to connect via a standard Remote Desktop session.

To Connect you will need to use the following command:

"MSTSC/ admin"


This provides an admin connection and as such does not require a Remote Desktop license.


If you want to connect a Terminal Services License server have a look at the following article from Microsoft:
