Terminal Services Licensing - How to free up a used license
Posted on 2004-03-25
I have a Win2K domain controler that is our terminal services license server also. It has 20 licenses in it, and all 20 are used.
This is, of course, causing problems. :-(
The really annoying issue is that half of the 20 used licenses are used by either duplicate machines or users who are not with the company any longer. Also, some are used by machines already running windows 2000 pro, so they shouldn't be using a terminal service license, they should be an "Existing Windows 2000 License".
So, how do I free the licenses that are used by machines that don't exist on the network any more??? Do I have to deactivate the server w/ Microsoft and then Reactivate it???
Thanks in advance for any help!
