Windows 2000 Terminal Server Domain Licencing

Firstly we have 2 windows 2000 domain servers eg server1 & Server2, 1 on Windows 2000 Member Server i.e server3.

The server3 is setup as a Terminal Server (Application Mode) and is part of the domain.
Can I install Terminal Server Licencing on Server1 and access the licencing on Server3?

How can I configure a preferred Terminal Services license server? ?  

A. Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services usually uses a license server in the local domain; however, you might want to have a central license server for audit purposes or use a server in another domain. Perform the following steps to designate the license server you want a Terminal Services server to use:

   1. Start regedit.exe.
   2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ServicesTermService\Parameters.
   3. From the Edit menu, select New, String value.
   4. Enter a name of DefaultLicenseServer, and press Enter.
   5. Double-click the new value and set it to the name of the license server you want to use.
   6. Click OK.
   7. Close regedit.exe.
   8. For the change to take effect, use the following commands to stop and restart the license logging service:

      C:\> net stop "license logging service"
      C:\> net start "license logging service"

If the preferred license server isn't available, a Terminal Services server uses the next available license server in the domain.

Hi Leew,

Thanks for your advise, I would like to add on what I have found after much trial and error method as well.

The Terminal Server Licencing canbe installed under 2 modes
 - Enterprise
 - Workgroup/domain

1. Install under Terminal Licencing under Enterprise Mode on Server1 i.e the Domain Server (canbe either Domain Servers server1 or server2)
2. Registered the CALS
3. The server3 as u mentioned picks the available licence server in the domain and uses licences
