Problem renewing licence

I get the following error when I try to begin a RDP session. On my server I have 5 CAL's for terminal services. I see that there are four temporay licenses listed some of which are ready to expire and others that have expired. I have bought and intalled a 5 CAL pack however no licenses are listed there. Just temps.

How is this resolved. I cannot delete or renew the licenses on the server.

"The remote session was disconnected because the local computers client access license could not be upgraded or renewed."

Can you not just switch to Per User licensing mode - make sure that you have enough CALs then you shouldn;t be prompted like this.
"Two different TS CALs are available to you: 'Device' and 'User.' Each TS Device CAL permits one Device (used by any User) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your Servers. Each TS User CAL permits one User (using any Device) to conduct Windows Sessions on any of your Servers. You may use a mix of TS Device CALs and TS User CALs simultaneously with the Server Software in your environment. You can have a Terminal Server request Per User licenses or Per Device (default) but not both simultaneously."

How to change the licensing mode:

Thanks for the quick response
Glad that we could help out.
I would say that you must make sure that you have enough CALs - you cannot legally use TS without these - in either mode.
To me - this is just a better way of using terminal server - less hassle.
