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 license 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.

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

    • With Per Device, each device has "RDS-2016 CAL" physically assigned to them. In Per User, RDS CAL 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.

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

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.

  • On the license server (usually the first RD Connection Broker), open the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

  • Right-click the license server (your server), and then click Install Licenses.

  • In the Install Licenses Wizard, on the Welcome to the Install Licenses Wizard page, click Next.

  • On the License Program page, select License Pack (Retail Purchase), and then click Next.

  • Enter the 5x5 Retail license key(which you will get from us if purchased from this site) that you received by email after the purchase from us, click Add, and then click Next.
