Terminal Services Licensing Issue

Hi fellas. Recently we changed all the computer names in our orginization and also replaced a bunch on computers. The problem i am having is that in the windows 2003 terminal server licensing it shows the old computers instead of the new. How can I flush out all the computers in both the temporary and the licensing? I need to do this asap because people are unable to connect.

verify that the local area connection for the license server has File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks installed and enabled. Also, verify that the Remote Registry service is set to automatic and that the status is "running."

yes the licensing server has file and print server installed. And also the remote registry service was set to automatic and was started.

You can't, but theoretically, that shouldn't be a problem. TS CALs are renewed on a regular basis as long as the clients connect to the TS. If a client doesn't connect to the TS anymore, the license will be put back into the pool of available licenses after a random period between 52 and 89 days. Temporary TS CALs are good for 90 days, so if you replace a client and attach a new one instead, after 89 days (at the latest), the old client's CAL will be returned, and should be available to the new client before the temporary license expires.
What else did you replace/change, and what is the exact error when you say "people are unable to connect"?

hey,
RUn lsview ( download LSview.msi from microsoft.com and install it, run the lsview.exe)
it will give you the License servers in the domain. If it shows the old server name then go to this key in your registry
of the 2003 terminal serevr.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters\LicenseServers
and under that there might be a sub key with the name of the old license server change it to the new license server.
or alternately you can use the group policy to specify the license server if you have SP1 applied.
