Terminal Server 2003: Tempoary license expiring and non used User Cals

we have a new SBS 2003 R2 (SBS)server and a 2nd W2003 (TSS) server.  The W2003 is the Terminal Server.
On either server when I look at T/S Licensing and point to TSS it says 5 user cals unused.  9 tempoary device cals some expiring or expired.  Those device cals are the problem.  Those people can no longer access.

I understand we have user cals and want user cals but don't understand why the remotes grabbed the device cals or how to get rid of them?  I've re-actived and still same issue.

Duh !

Did you check your event logs to see if there is a message about your TS licensing expiring?

New installation.  Open License Order Confirmation shows last date of maintenance coverage 31 Jan 2010.  Just issued in 14 Jan 2008.

Regardless I don't think TS Licesning does expire.  Good forever ?

If the licenses were installed correctly then it should be permament, if there is some problem then the TS server gives you 120 days to get your licensing in line.

What error message are your users getting when they log in?

The remote session was disconnected because the local computer's client access license could not be upgraded or renewed.

I think I may have found it.  The terminal server license was set in Device mode not user mode.  Made the change.  Hope it stays and all is well.

Will repost if reoccurs.

Thanks
