Posted on 2006-04-10

I have a 2003 terminal server, running as licensing server, I have just activated and installed license pak with no problems however I'm still prompted my temporary license will expire in 7 days.

I see in the console approx 75 temporary per device licenses have been issued but no per user permanent licenses.

Any ideas, will a reboot solve this, or do I need to manually delete the temp licenses?

    Hi premierpc,

    The temp licenses are fine at the moment.  When the client that has a temp licenses presents to the Terminal server with an expired temp license, it will be assigned a permanent license.  The clients will continue to use temp until they expire...
