i have a 2000 server which is our terminal server. we used to have a 2000 license server which no longer exists. I now have a 2003 server that is the new license server. I have installed terminal server licensing and have added our 20 CALS' for 2000 server (20 device access licenses). I am not able to connect to the terminal server because i am sure since the 20 cals we have are 'device' licenses that they have already been used and reserved by certain clients (that is my assumption). i get the 'error in licensing protocol' message when trying to use RDP to connect. I am trying to see what i need to do in order to start connecting new users to our 2000 terminal server using the new license server and what (if any) changes to the CALS need to be made. hope this makes sense.

This won't fix your issue but may help your troubleshooting.

You can lookup if they are used on your licensing server.  Go to Terminal Services Licensing.  Open the server the license was installed on.  On this screen you should be able to see your license total, available, and issued.
