Greetings, The 120-day grace period on licensing for my terminal server has expired this week.  I still need this server for a couple more weeks, Is there any way for me to extend that grace period.  How about if I uninstall/reinstall the terminal server?  Thanks.

If you completely re-install the server, then yes it would work....but as you have read in the licencing agreement, the 'grace period' is not to 'try out' TS, it is there as a convenience to make life easier for system admins to get used to it and configure it correctly. Legally, I believe that you are probably already obliged to register/purchase any lincences that you are using. As a result, other techniques that 'may' be available are illegal, and for us to assist you on this website would contravene our member agreement.

pjedmond, I'm not asking for any "get arounds" here.  I just wanted to find out if I can find a way to use the server for few more days. Since purchasing a license is the only option here.  I'll talk to my boss about getting us a license server :)
Thanks for your help.
