Hi, I have a friend who runs a 2003 Terminal Server that he is replacing.

The server was installed years ago, and he has no idea where the Keys are that came with the 10 user CAL.

Is there a way to extract the CALs or transfer them from one server to another?

He contacted MS, but they say they need the keys in order to help him. The funny thing is, if he had the keys, he wouldnt need them help!


Thanks,
Dekkar

The official way is to re-install.

It shall as described on http://www.brianmadden.com/forums/t/11700.aspx be possibly to migrate the content of the following folder when the TS licensing service is stopped
%systemroot%\system32\lserver
