Hi,

I am running a server 2003 x64 box as a TS and have the standard 5 device license option installed. I recently swapped out one of the client boxes on my network with a new one and now I can't use it for TS sessions because there are no licenses avaiable until the next one expires in several months time. Is there a way to cancel one or more of the issued device licenses in this situation?

In 2003 there isn't a way to revoke the license but in 2008 you can now. See if this link works but if it doesn't will have to call to get a temporary license. The way to find the nearest clearing house to you is the last link.
