I'll try to be as brief as possible.  Had some issues with licenses various people installed for TS.  Currently running with 60 device and 40 user licenses installed.  All TS servers were set to use per device, so a ton of temp licenses have been handed out.  Now that they are expiring, it is coming to light that we have this issue.  I took one TS server and set it to use per user licensing under the config manager and then reboot both it and the license server last night.  Today I come in and it says it is set for per user, but none of the 30ish people logged onto it were handed per user cals, just per device.

We are having some users that I need to get pretty creative to get on.  If I could get this one server to switch over and start using the 40 per user cals that are just sitting there on the server, it would really buy me the time to get this sorted out properly.

Any ideas why the server can be changed to and reporting use of per user licenses and none of them are being handed out?
