Can someone provide a Microsoft article detailing the consequences of using an expired license for Windows Server 2019 Terminal Services? I need to convince a customer to purchase a license and they want to know what services or functions will be limited after the 180 day grace period.

    Hello,

    The grace period for terminal services is 120 days.

    You can refer to the following Microsoft article for information on the consequences of using an expired license for Windows Server 2019 Terminal Services:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/rds-client-access-license#what-happens-if-i-use-an-expired-license

    According to the article, if you use an expired license for Windows Server 2019 Terminal Services, you may experience the following consequences:

    1. You will not be able to connect to the Remote Desktop Session Host server.
    2. You will receive an error message stating that the license is expired.
    3. You will not be able to use Remote Desktop Services until a valid license is installed.

    It is important to ensure that you have a valid license for Windows Server 2019 Terminal Services to avoid any disruptions in service.

    Best Regards,

    Hania Lian
