Terminal Services Licensing Server - Upgrading to  Windows 2003 for purpose of Citrix access...

Posted on 2004-11-15

I'm going to be upgrading Citrix from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 (as part of an entire Windows 2003 upgrade project) and my understanding is that this upgrade will require a 2003 TS Licensing server. Right now, Terminal Services Licensing server is running from a domain controller, which has already been upgraded to Windows 2003. My question is, will this just be a licensing issue, or do I need to actually install a new TS Licensing server on that domain controller - or was the new TS Licensing server automatically upgraded when I upgraded the Domain Controller to Windows 2003 and now I just need to purchase licenses? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide on upgrading Terminal Services Licensing Server for Windows 2003...

    you should only have to purchase licenses for the server.. the upgrade process should've taken care of the licensing upgrade... some things you may want to know though... terminal services licensing is different in 2003 than in 2000.... you need to purchase cals for all computers including windows 2000 pro and XP pro... you may qualify for a free CAL for XP Pro machines if you owned the software prior to April 24, 2004... check this website for more details...
