The Terminal Server Licensing I have is all messed up (see image attached). I own 5 retail device CALs and 20 volume device CALs. I want to remove anything here I don't need so things are clean. I don't see anywhere that will let me delete anything and none of them specify which they are.

1. For some reason there are Windows 2000 CALs that I don't know if I need or not or if I can even use. There are 2 Windows 2000 servers in the environment, neither are used for public Terminal Services, only administration. Can I delete the Windows 2000 tokens, if so how? A few CALs were issued in 2008 that would have been administration machines and a few that I don't know who they are.

2. I accidentally chose user CALs when I added the 2003 volume CALs so I need to delete them since I don't own them, how do I do this correctly?

3. Is there any way to label the 2003 Device CALs so I know which is the 20 licenses and which is the 5 licenses?
