WS2003 gives you 90 days free, with terminal services.

Did you activate the licenses?

before the 90 day free period ended - we installed the CALs on the server

Are the licenses visible from within the license console?

If i expand All servers and then the License server and click "WIndows 2003 - Terminal Server Per User CAL Token"
All the fields (ie "issued to", "issued on", "expires on" and "quantity") are all set to "not applicable"

These are the (temporary) "Per Device" licenses that are given to your clients:
> Product: Temporary Licences for WIndows 2003 - Terminal Server Per Device CAL Token
> Issued: 23
These temporary licenses are given out because the TS CALs you've installed are "Per User", and the TS is still in its default setting of "Per Device":
> Product: WIndows 2003 - Terminal Server Per User CAL Token
> Total: 5
You need to open the Terminal Services Configuration MMC on your terminal server and switch the licensing type to "Per User"; the licenses settings on the terminal server have to match the licenses you've installed on the TS license server. Check here for details:

thanks oBdA,
I had already figured that out last night, and so far so good, no users were reporting any problems.
but seeing as though changing the user mode is the solution to this problem, and i did not advise yesterday i think it is fair that i award you with the 400 pts, and "firebear" with 100 - as he also gave me an idea on where to look.

does that sound fair to you?
