Windows 2008 R2 Event Message:

The Remote Desktop license server cannot update the license attributes for user “%1!s!” in the Active Directory Domain “%2!s!”. Ensure that the computer account for the license server is a member of Terminal Server License Servers group in Active Directory domain “%2!s!”.
If the license server is installed on a domain controller, the Network Service account also needs to be a member of the Terminal Server License Servers group.
If the license server is installed on a domain controller, after you have added the appropriate accounts to the Terminal Server License Servers group, you must restart the Remote Desktop Licensing service to track or report the usage of RDS Per User CALs.
Win32 error code: %3!s!

I got Win32 error code: 0x80070005

Possible reason why issue exists:

It is a problem with the read / write users in the group “Terminal Server License Servers.” This group does not exist in Windows Server 2000 and appears with WS2003. If your domain was originally Windows 2000, and migrated to Windows 2003 and now has migrated to WS2008, it is possible that this is your problem.

 

Possible Solutions

1) Add the license server to the Terminal Server License Servers group and restart the Remote Desktop Licensing service

Follow the instructions on URL http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee890942(v=ws.10).aspx

2) Update settings on particular user objects

Go into Active Directory Users and Computers

Go into Properties for a particular user; select the Security Tab and click Advanced

You’ll notice that there are no security permission details for Terminal Server License Server or the Group might not even be there

Edit or Add the rights as below
Read Terminal Server License Server
Write Terminal Server License Server

 

3) ADSIEDIT [Do at your own risk]

On a Active Directory Server open ADSIEDIT, goto properties of which ever OU, then Security, Advanced Button, add “Terminal Server License Server”, goto Properties tab, apply to: choose “Descndant User Objects”

set the following rights
Read Terminal Server license server “Allow”
Write Terminal Server license server “Allow”
