There are two types of Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Services CAL

Each user or device accessing a licensed Windows Server 2016 requires a Windows Server CAL or a Windows Server RDS CAL. The Remote Desktop Services license server issues client access licenses (CALs) to users and devices when they access the RD Session Host. You can activate the how to install rds cals on windows server 2016license server by using the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

RDS USER CAL: For every user who accesses the server to use services such as file storage or printing, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access.
RDS Device CAL:,For every device that accesses your server, regardless of the number of users who use that device to access the server.
RDS CAL

To better understand the two types of RDS CALs, some of the main differences are outlined below:

RDS CAL

  • With Per Device, each device has RDS-2016 CALs physically assigned to them. In Per User, RDS CALs are assigned in Active Directory.

  • RDS CALs can be tracked using Per Device, whereas they cannot be tracked within a workgroup for Per User.

  • Up to 20% of RDS CALs can be revoked in Per Device, however it’s not possible in Per User.

  • In Per Device, temporary RDS CALs are valid between 52 and 89 days, but no temporary RDS CALs are issued in Per User.

  • RDS CAL

    It’s not possible to over-allocate RDS CALs when using Per Device, however over-allocation may occur with Per User.

    RDS CAL

If using the Per Device option, the first time a device connects to the RD Session Host, a temporary license is issued. When the device connects for a second time, the license server issues a permanent RDS Per Device CAL (dependent on the license server being activated and the availability of RDS CALs).

The Per User model differs in that each user is given a license to connect to an RD Session Host from various devices. Licenses are issued from the license server depending on the available RDS CAL pool.

Remote Desktop Services Roles and Features on Windows Server 2016

Remote Desktop Gateway
Enables authorized users to connect to virtual desktops, Remote-App programs, and session-based desktops over a private network or the Internet.
Remote Desktop Connection Broker
Allows users to reconnect to their existing virtual desktop, RemoteApp programs, and session-based desktops. It enables even load distribution across RD Session Host servers in a session collection or across pooled virtual desktops in a pooled virtual desktop collection and provides access to virtual desktops in a virtual desktop collection.
Remote Desktop Session Host
Enables a server to host RemoteApp programs as session-based desktops. Users can connect to RD Session Host servers in a session collection to run programs, save files, and use resources on those servers. Users can access Remote Desktop Session Host server by using the Remote Desktop Connection client or by using RemoteApp programs.
Remote Desktop Virtualization Host
Enables users to connect to virtual desktops by using RemoteApp and Desktop Connection.
Remote Desktop Web Access
Enables users to access RemoteApp and Desktop Connection through the Start Menu or through a web browser. RemoteApp and Desktop Connection provide users with a customized view of RemoteApp programs, session-based desktops, and virtual desktops.
Remote Desktop Licensing
Enables a server to manage RDS client access licenses (RDS CALs) that are required for each device or user to connect to a Remote Desktop Session Host server. RDS CALs are managed using the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager application.

Instructions: Install and Activate the RDS CAL on Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

Verify connectivity on Windows Server Remote Desktop Services

To verify the functionality of the deployment, use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to connect to the remote host. The use of the license will be verified on the Remote Desktop license server.

  • Verify client connectivity:

    • To verify client connectivity in a session-based desktop deployment: Establish a client connection in a session-based desktop deployment using a valid license

    • To verify client connectivity in a virtual machine-based desktop deployment: Establish a client connection in a virtual machine-based desktop deployment using a valid license.

    Track your Remote Desktop Services client access licenses (RDS CALs)

You can use the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager tool to create reports to track the RDS Per User CALs that have been issued by a Remote Desktop license server.

Use the following steps to generate a per User CALs report:

  1. In Remote Desktop Licensing Manager right-click the license server, click Create Report, and then click Per User CAL Usage.

  2. Set the scope for the report - select one of the following:

    • Entire domain - the domain in which the license server is a member.
    • Organizational Unit - Any OU within the domain in which the license server is a member.
    • Entire domain and all trusted domains - Can include domains in other forests. Selecting this option can increase the time that it takes to create the report.

    The selection that you make determines which user accounts in AD DS are searched for RDS Per User CAL information to generate the report.

  3. Click Create Report. The report is created and a message appears to confirm that the report was successfully created. Click OK to close the message.

The report that you created appears in the Reports section under the node for the license server. The report provides the following information:

  • Date and time the report was created
  • The scope of the report (e.g., Domain, OU=Sales, or All trusted domains)
  • The number of RDS Per User CALs that are installed on the license server
  • The number of RDS Per User CALs that have been issued by the license server specific to the scope of the report

You can also save the report as a CSV file to a folder location on the computer. To save the report, right-click the report that you want to save, click Save As, and then specify the file name and location to save the report.

Reports that you create are listed in the Reports node under the node for the license server in Remote Desktop Licensing Manager. If you no longer need a report, you can delete it. Please visit here for RDS-2019 CALs
