We have just migrated an NT4 domain to Windows 2003SBS. We tried to implement on the SBS box a 5 user Terminal server in application mode and activated the server accordingly.
We later found during testing that it will not issue the user cals on the retail license pack entered, it keeps issueing temprory device cals upto 3 users at a time.
We phoned microsoft who advised us that because we are using SBS it will NOT act as a TS app server and that we need a seperate Windows 2003 Standard server to act as the Terminal Server.
We implemented this and added it as a member server and tried again. This time STILL no joy, but found a cuople of reistry changes to make the server find the licence server and change the cals in the reg to user cals.
This still did not work so we DCPROMO it to a DC. and still we cannot get it to issue the retail CALS purchased. It is now a week since deploying the second server and we cannot make this work.
