Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services Connection Problems

Have a windows 2003 SBS with a windows 2003 web edition server.  Web edition is acting as a terminal server and is collecting licenses from sbs.  Multiple machine on network can no longer get RDP connections to web server.  All were fine for many months but in last week, many have failed.  Error message reads :
"The Remote Session Was Disconnected Because The Terminal Server Client Access License Stored On This Computer Has Been Modified."

Machines are all Win2K and XPP.  I can RDP into webserver from sbs server with no problems and RDP sessions are listening.  Searched for error on Microsoft and only relevance says the solution is to contact Server Admin.  

Anyone else seen this or know of reason.

Many Thanks

Karl

U running in admin mode or application server mode?  Unless u have users using terminal services u should be in admin mode.  U will have 2 free licenses that way.  If you go to application mode your temp client liceses will expire.  You will need to purchase 2003 TS CALS and intsall them on the DC licensing server.

I managed to solve the problem after much playing about.  
I had purchased Terminal server licences and they were installed on the sbs server.  the 2003 web edit.  was picking up the licenses but not switching from the temporary grace licenses to the proper ones.  I eventually noticed that the Temp licenses were per seat and the legit were per user.  I change the operating mode of terminal server licencing to per user and all worked again.

The above answers were useful so split points.

Thanks
