How to: Server 2008R2 RDS Re-Arm for another 120 days.

You know, sometimes you just couldn't get that budget request in to get those RDS licenses ordered and installed. It happens, especially is this day in age. I searched everywhere on how to re-arm the trail for RDS, to no avail! All the answers I saw were, rebuild the server or buy the licenses. Sure, let me just rebuild a server just because (if that is an option, more power to you). Here is a simple way to re-arm the trail for RDS.

Locate in the registry editor and find this folder:
HKLM\SYS\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\GracePeriod

Just delete the key inside this folder, reboot and you will have another 120 days to work with. Enjoy!
