    Hello @Nikhil Lotia ,

    What's your RDS environment? Is it session-based deployment or VDI deployment?
    How did you configure high availability for connection broker using azure SQL database?

    Does it work if you try the following solution:
    MultiSubnetFailover=TRUE isn't correct, and to use =YES instead;
    Set up the license server type (per user or per computer).

    For your reference:

    Best regards,
