Azure VM LIcensing Error

When you log in to the Windows Azure VM, you may receive a popup that says you need to configure the licensing server. If you don't configure the licensing server, you only have X days left of access.

You need to sign in to the Azure portal, download the RDP file for that virtual server, and only access the VM from that RDP. 

The RDP file has access to the server, even after the licensing server grace period ends.
