Clear-Host 
$ErrorActionPreference = "SilentlyContinue" 
 
## Display current Status of remaining days from Grace period. 
$GracePeriod = (Invoke-WmiMethod -PATH (gwmi -namespace root\cimv2\terminalservices -class win32_terminalservicesetting).__PATH -name GetGracePeriodDays).daysleft 
Write-Host -fore Green ====================================================== 
Write-Host -fore Green 'Terminal Server (RDS) grace period Days remaining are' : $GracePeriod 
Write-Host -fore Green ======================================================   
Write-Host 
$Response = Read-Host "Do you want to reset Terminal Server (RDS) Grace period to Default 120 Days ? (Y/N)" 
 
if ($Response -eq "Y") { 
## Reset Terminal Services Grace period to 120 Days 
 
$definition = @" 
using System; 
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;  
namespace Win32Api 

    public class NtDll 
    { 
        [DllImport("ntdll.dll", EntryPoint="RtlAdjustPrivilege")]

## Enable SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege 
$res = [Win32Api.NtDll]::RtlAdjustPrivilege(9, $true, $false, [ref]$bEnabled) 
 
## Take Ownership on the Key 
$key = [Microsoft.Win32.Registry]::LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM\GracePeriod", [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKeyPermissionCheck]::ReadWriteSubTree,[System.Security.AccessControl.RegistryRights]::takeownership)

## Finally Delete the key which resets the Grace Period counter to 120 Days.
