Wyse Terminals taking up multiple TS Device CAL's

Posted on 2007-08-02
Last Modified: 2013-11-21

I have a Windows 2003 Terminal R2 SP2 and Wyse v90 Terminals. I have 60 Terminals and 70 Terminal Services Device CAL licenses. I have run out of licenses! and when I look in the Terminal Server Licesning the Wyse Terminals have taken up multiple CAL's some have taken up to 10 with the same device name(issued on different days). in the temporary licenses there some in there with up to 20 (I have over 300 temporary licenses created). This is getting crazy. Can any one help with this?

Thanks in advance,

    How to rebuild the Terminal Server Licensing Database:

    Also, it seems as though you accidently posted this to the SBS Small Business Server zone... I am going to remove that as it doesn't seem to be involved with this issue.

    No worries thanks for that.

    That will fix the licensing database but the wyse terminals will still take up multiple licenses. I'm not sure why they are doing it.

    A quick search found this webcast transcript which describes how Wyse terminals have a ROM chip that apparently stores the CALs... I didn't really read much of it... but I'm sure you will find it to be helpful:
