Microsoft RDS Licensing Activation Issues

Just a small problem but considering I ran into it twice in one week with two different customers I thought I would post a fix for Microsoft Remote Desktop Service Licensing Activation problems. Normally you get your licenses through Open, Select, Retail or something like an MPSA agreement. To activate them you just login to your RDS license server and enter the details and activate them.

This time I kept getting errors saying the data I provided Microsoft is incorrect. Anyways I found out if you go to this website you can run though the website and it will either give you a code to use web activation for or you have to call. The second server I did this worked.

The first server the site didn’t work and had to call 888-571-2048. Once I called and ran through giving the rep all the same numbers they gave me a code for telephone activation.
