Today i tried connecting to one of my domain controllers (Windows 2003 Server SP1) via remote desktop and got the message:

"no terminal server licence servers available to provide a license"

I didnt think in remote administration mode i had to have a license server installed as it by default allows to users to connect?

I dont have a license server installed or configured and when i go to add/remove programs and add/remove windows components I dont get the choice to choose between remote administration mode or application server mode.

Any ideas?

Uninstall Terminal Services from Add/Remove Windows Components. On Server 2003, Remote Desktop (the former Remote Administration Mode) is installed by default, you just have to enable it in the properties of "My Computer".
