Hi,

I am getting the error "Terminal server cannot issue client licence" when I try and log on to our 2003 server, the error is displayed in the servers event log.  There is a microsoft link that offers no help so any advice would be great.  Please let me know if you need any additional info.

Thanks

Do you have a W2k3 Terminal Services License Server installed and activated?
If so, did you enter the appropriate licenses?
If so, does the Per User/Per Device setting on the Terminal Server match the Per User/Per Device licenses you entered on the License Server?

Have you install the Terminal Service Licensing component either on Active Directory or on the box itself?

Thanks

If jou have done this and he cannot find his terminal service licensing server try to add the following key in the register (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=279561):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters
-> new key "LicenseServers".

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters\LicenseServers
-> new key "ServerName" where ServerName is the NetBIOS name of the license server that you want to use.

Restart your computer.
