Terminal Server Licensing Trouble
Posted on 2003-10-22
I am hoping someone will be able to help me with this problem I am having with Terminal Server 2000.
I am very confused about the whole Terminal Server Licensing. I have heard that if you are using Windows 2000 Pro, the terminal license is already there and you don't need to buy more licenses for these machines to access and to use the Terminal Server. Others have said that you need to spend $1000 of more dollars to buy licenses for these machines to access and use the Terminal Server. If anyone can clear this up it would be great.
Also... We have a Windows Terminal Server 2000 and it was running fine in a Windows NT4 Domain. It didn't need more Terminal Server Licenses. Now that I have upgraded to Windows 2000 Server with AD. It is saying that I need to activate the Terminal Services License Server and buy more. I have 8 days left until the trial licenses run out and I need this mess that I have created to be cleaned up. what do I need to do? I don't really want the company to use more money.
Please help and thank you to all.
