I have SBS2003R2 Premium setup as a terminal services licensing server.  It is registered and activated and has 5 per user cals installed.

I have a Strandard 2003R2 server in a virtual machine on the SBS.  It is joined to the domain and configured as a terminal server.

If I go to RWW The terminal server shows up when I click connect to the application server.

When I click connect I get the error:
disconnected the session because of an error in the licensing protocol...

I followed all the advice here:
http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/d5336104-c7c3-4a6c-84a6-ef6eaecd80771033.mspx?mfr=true

and here:
http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/159e6ff8-4edb-43fd-8767-3d9858897e2c1033.mspx?mfr=true

all the settings look to be correct.

any other ideas?

FYI, a terminal server will install in "Per Device" mode by default.  So if you have USER TS CALs, and didn't change it when you installed it, that's where your problem is.

If you dind't follow them, I'd suggest reinstalling it anyhow... it won't take too long and will help you to avoid any future issues that could result from not doing everything as it states.  One important item is Step 4 in the TS Guide which states that you must create an administrator account to manage the TS Server with the SBS Add User wizard.

I'm in the process of reinstalling.  During the install of VS2005 The installation completes sucessfully.  But no VirtualServer website is created.  Also I get an error The service principal names for Virtual Server could not be registered. Constrained delegation cannot be used until the SPNs have been registered manually.  Error 0x80072098 - Insufficient access rights to perform the operation.

I got these same problems previously and worked around them by createing the website manually and adding the service principle names using adsiedit.

But I wonder if this is an omen of something else going sideways.

Im going to recreate the site and fix the spns again and reinstall 2003 in Per User mode.

I couldnt find the VS install log to see what error it got when attempting to create the website.

all is happy now.  

I think I could have fixed it by going to tscc.msc and changing the license to user.  but the practice is good.
