I work in a school system.  We have the following: two TS servers that will both be windows 2003 and I hope to update the domain to 2003 soon, currently 2000.  We are going to use Citrix / Terminal server for two uses. 1.  to setup some labs for students 2.  To give teachers access from home via Citrix nfuse.  I want to give my labs TS licenses per device (these will be thin clients).  Each day 4-6 students will use them therefor per device makes sense.  But my teachers will be using their machines in the classroom, library, labs and home therefor per user for them makes more sense.  How can I do this.

I agree with you in that if you have multiple users logging on, you are better off using PER DEVICE.

However, a TS servers can only be either PER USER or PER DEVICE and not both.  The TS License server can hand out both types of licenses without any problems.

Therefore, I have two suggestions:

1) to make on TS server PER USER and a second TS server PER DEVICE.
2) To make both TS servers per Device and use only PER DEVICE licensing in your environment.
