Hi,

One of my server in the domain been reinstall and I dont know why, I cant connect anymore in Terminal Server.

Ive got 40 licenses of windows server and I see them install on MS licensing.

with ultr@vnc im able to log on server and manage it. But user cannot connect to the server.
I've check for users connected to server and nobody was connected to it.

Only the local admin is logged on !

Anyone got an idea ?

Thanks

Dee

Windows CAL's are different from Terminal Server CAL's.
If the server is runing Terminal Services in Remote Administration Mode, you can make two simultanious connections (with Administrator accounts), WITHOUT TS CALs. If these are not logged off and you try to connect from a third PC, you get the error you describe. You can force these connections to drop/logoff through the Terminal Services management console.

If you want to allow your Domain Users to log in to the server with the Remote Desktop clients, you'll need to install and activate a Terminal Service Licensing Server in your domain, and change the Terminal Service mode to "application server".
