Windows 2003 licenses
Posted on 2004-09-27
We have our servers in mixed mode. We have 2 windows nt terminal server one is acting as PDC and other is BDC. We have 2 more w2k servers as member server in this NT domain with terminal services enabled. One of the w2k server is running terminal licensing server. Not active directory is setup.
Now we are planning to buy two more windows 2003 servers. We will add these as a member server too. We don't have any plan to switch to active directory yet. These are also used as terminal server and will host citrix server.
So my question is do we need to buy 2003 server's terminal licenses and have to setup one more license server on one of these boxes? or it will discover terminal license server already hoseted on w2k?
Also for our w2k boxes we have bought open licenses around 150 CAL and 150 Terminal CAL. On our agreement summary it says our licenses are expired. Is this mean we need to buy these again? If then we need to buy thsese every two year as cureent licenses are expired in two year.
Thanks for help,
