TS Licensing in Windows 2003

We are running a Windows 2003 server with Terminal Services/Citrix.  I have installed TS User CALs, but when people connect up to Citrix, they get a Temporary Device CAL and not one of our User CALs.  Is there a way to assign the CALs or how do I go about fixing this (as people will start loosing access in a couple days due to the end of the 90 days).

the 120 grace period ends as soon as you deliver your first licence.
did you set up a TS licence server? i think you must, you have to install your licences there.
is the TS complaining in eventlog about "not finding a TS licence server" ?

I already have setup the license server and installed licenses on it.

do you have a domain?
if yes, you have to install the TS licence server on a DC.
if you are installing it onto a member server for a domain, you must implement the LicenseServers registry key because the discovery process cannot locate it.

Yes, it is in a domain and on a DC.  People can and have been connecting, they are just receiving temp device CALs.

that means, your TS does not discover your terminal services licence server.
follow the instructions of the link in my last post anyways.
this can be done on DC's too, if there are such problems.

I will try this in a little bit.

Could the be the problem even if this is the only server (or computer for that matter) in the domain and it is the server running TS/Citrix?  All of the other PCs connecting up to it are part of workgroups, but they are logging in as domain users (obviously).  Don't know if that matters.

no that should be no problem.
as long as the ts is issuing temp licences, he has not found his ts licence server.

I set that reg key and noone is receiving a full license yet.  The temp license should automatically change to a full license, right?
