When you change the Terminal Server mode on the server, from Remote Administration mode to Application mode, and you then try to open a session on a client computer, the following error message may appear:
The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server License Servers available to provide a license.
Please contact the server administrator.
Formerly, you received a warning message 90 days before you had to obtain a license.


This behavior can occur if the client computer has just moved from a domain that has a Terminal Server License Server to a domain that does not have one. In this situation, the 90-day license warning function becomes disabled.


To resolve this issue, obtain a license for the client to connect to the Terminal Server.


This behavior is by design.
