I have a Windows 2003 server running terminal services. It has 25 User CALs License installed. The server is running in User Mode already. We have started to use all the license up so we've purchased another 10 user CALS. I've installed the licenses and everything looks fine i.e the license server is seeing the new 10 CALS.

The issues is, we still only can only get 25 users logged on. it looks like the server is not issuing the new CALS.

The Terminal Service is the License server, the server is Windows 2003 Standard, and it is a member Server.

Have you rebooted the license server or even the DC?

Check your TS settings to make sure someone didn't prematurely set the max number of logged on sessions to 25.
