Posted on 2006-06-12
I Have Windows 2003 Active Directory Domain i have two Domain Controllers and one file server all servers are Win2k3 SP 2 the file server doubles up as an exchange server. I currently have windows 2003 terminal server running on one of the domain controllers in application mode, the application is sage. The license server is also running on this box as well.
Now it has been working fine for the best part of 3 months then all of a sudden users report that they are getting messages stating that there license is about to expire.
So i checked on the server and have disscovered that the Licenses are all Tempoary Device Cal Token Arrrgh nightmare, so i look online and various articals mention that I have to activate Terminal services but i am sure i did this so i did it again. Still the same!!!! entered the License Codes in total 2 license codes giving me 10 Device license click activate and it reports that the server is activated.
Now i open the LIcense server console and check what is displayed under the server
