I have a server that has 5 device licenses. One of the licenses is not being used anymore. How can I change T/S to recognize the new device?

After max. 89 days it becomes available automatically.
If in the meantime when you start a new device, that will get a temporary license which is valid for 90 days.
After those 90 days it will get the now released 'old' license.
So bascically you don't have to do anything.

The temporary license has expired and it has not renewed.

Has the issued license to the old device expired? Look in Terminal Server Licensing, click on your license server, then on 'Windows Server 2003 - Terminal Server Per  Device CAL Token'. To the right you should NOT see the old device. If it is still there then it has not expired, but it should have an expire date in the column 'Expires On'.
If so, what is that date?

All 5 licenses are in use. The license in question expires on 12/29/06. The temp license assigned to the problem cpu expired 10/16/06. I have removed the registry key on the client and renamed the system. The unit still will not connect.

You can temporary solve this by removing the following registry sub-hive on the client:
/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/MSLicensing
Not just a key under there, but this whole hive.

Removing the mslicensing key on the client was the answer. What threw me was the server did not drop an used device and add the lastest device as a permanate client. I guess this is the best fix until the license expires again. Thanks.
