Terminal Services Licensing - Licenses installed but still in Remote Desktop Mode.

Hi,

I'm using Windows Small Business 2003.  I've recently purchased 5 licenses per Device for Terminal Server 2003.  I installed them, everything seemed fine...  When I go in Terminal Server Licensing, I see:
Windows Server 2003 - Terminal Server Per Device Cal Token - Type:Open  Total:5  Available:5   Issued:0

I am in Remote Desktop Connection right now but my connection doesn't appear as issued, there are still 5 connections available...  

When I go in "Terminal Server Configuration", the parameter under Server Settings:  "Licensing" has the value "Remote Desktop For Administration".  And I can't change it.  Looks like I've installed 5 licenses, but can't change the mode "Remote Desktop For Administration" so I can't use more than 2 simultaneous connections...

Can anyone help me use my 5 licenses in the right mode?

goto the control panel under add/remove programs, click on the add / remove windows components and when you click OK to close out of the box it will present you with the option to change the mode of TS.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.  I went into Add/Remove Windows Components.  Terminal Server Licensing is checked.  I don't have any OK button.  I click Cancel, or I click Next, but nothing pops me about changing the mode of TS.  But this is exactly what I want to do, what am I doing wrong to not have the option?

Thanks

sorry that is Windows 2000.

try turning off remote desktop on the server while I do a little research.  Control panel, system, remote tab, unchecked the remote desktop.  

Let me know if that works.  

Are you sure that your TS server is pointing to the correct licensing server?  Did it auto discover the licenses?

I just read in a private newsgroup that TS for application mode was removed from SBS2003. You only have the option of remote desktop for Administration in SBS2003.

Looks like you need to install SBS2000 or Windows Server 200X.


Sorry

So there is no way on my SBS2003 to have more than 2 users using Terminal, even if I did install 5 licences?  Wow I didn't expect this...  Thanks for the hints, I'll give the points after reading a little on the subject.

Thanks
