Reset Grace Period of Windows Server 2012 RDS


the remote session was disconnected because there are no remote desktop license servers available to provide license in aws


The solution is to delete the REG_BINARY in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\GracePeriod

To delete the key you must take ownership and give admin users full control.

After a restart the server will reset the grace period to 120 days.
