Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration tool is not able to obtain the properties

When I cloned a RDS server I was unable to RDP to the server and on entering RDS Session Host Configuration I got the error below :-

remote desktop session host configuration tool is not able to obtain the properties

I believe the issue is caused by RDS looking at a NIC that no longer exists. CHanging the reg key below works after restarting the RDS Services.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\LanAdapter

Set the value to 0.

This sets it to all available network cards.
