Help reinstalling Terminal Server Licensing (for CAL's)
Posted on 2007-07-26
I help administer a server running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition and am having an issue with our device CAL's. We have three laptops that need to access the server via Terminal Services. We have 3 'Per Device' CALs (Volume licenses). Two of the laptops have been assigned a CAL, but the third one was incorrectly assigned to a desktop pc.
From what I've read so far, CALs cannot be transferred from one device to another (is that correct?) If it is, then I will attempt to re-install Terminal Service Licensing and re-active the license. The only thing is, we cannot find the original documentation that came with the server. Does Server 2003 Standard come with a default amount of CALs? Is there any way we can retrieve the licensing info from the server or by contacting Microsoft?
