SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install the "TS Licensing tools" feature on a Windows Server 2008-based server.
  • Some "Per User" licenses are installed on this Terminal Licensing server.
  • You create a "Per User CAL usage" report in the TS Licensing Manager tool.
In this scenario, the following event is logged in the System log on the server:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-TerminalServices-Licensing
Date: date & time
Event ID: 4106
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: computer name Description: TS CAL reporting: Windows Server 2008 PerUser CALs: Installed: number, Issued: 0

However, this event incorrectly reports that the number of issued licenses is 0. This incorrect information makes it difficult for customers to track the licenses.

Note The "Per User CAL usage" report returns the correct number of issued licenses.

CAUSE

The TS Licensing Manager tool does not generate the correct number of licenses that have been issued by the Terminal licensing server.

A hotfix is available to resolve this issue.
