RDS 2019 Licensing server with 110 licenes installed some are windows 2012 r2, server 2016 and 2019 users cals

Nicholas Hay 1 Reputation point

we have moved our RDS licenses over to a 2019 RDS licensing server, there 50 2019 cals 28 2016 cals and 32 2012 r2 cals (we will next year start to move most users to a 2019 host)

we have 3 hosts

10 users 2019
38 users 2016
52 users 2012

is it normal behaviour that that the 2012 host doesn't use any of the 2016 or 2019 cals? as the licensing server is over subscribing the 2012 licenses even though there are 40 2019 cals available! the same happens to the 2016 host! these are all user cals
