Terminal Server Licenses


I installed windows 2003 server on our corporate network.
I guess there are only 2 Terminal Server licenses that comes by default.
Only 2 Guys can connect to windows 2003 server using terminal server.

Is there any way that we can increase the number of Licenses??? Or de we need to purchase additional licenses???

Purchase is the answer.
Yes they must be purchased as Minmei said and here is link from Microsoft to describe it. The two licenses you are currently using are for administrative use only.


If you are not aware of it, in Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2000 Professional had a terminal server client license built in so they did not have to be purchased. In Windows 2003, they took that away and now TS clients must be purchased for them.

Call Microsoft with any questions about licensing. It can be a pain to figure out sometimes.

We are using the same set-up however I believe it was included within our license contract.
The only think wre had to so was to set up a licensing server.  Have a talk with your Microsoft Account Manager or your reseller.
