Terminal Server Licensing on Domain Controller

I have installed a Terminal Server Licensing on my Primary Domain Controller, I have another member server which is running as Terminal Server, users will remote access to this member server. We have bought 20 Terminal Client license and I have activated on my Primary Domain Contoller which is running terminal server licensing.

Above is a correct way to Terminal Server Licensing on Primary DC?

Actually I want install the Terminal Server Licensing and activate the client license on my member server, but Terminal Server Licensing is not able install on memeber server, it only can be install on Domain Controller or Workgroud.

My DC is Windows 2003 server and memeber server is Windows 2000 server.

What exactly are you asking?  TS Licensing should be installed on a domain controller in a domain.  The way you've done it is correct.

Sorry maybe I question not clear enough.

Terminal Services run on member server, remote user accessing member server or Terminal Server using Remote Desktop Connection. TS Licensing installed on DC, Terminal Server or member server will automatically get the terminal CAL license from DC?

Last time I installed Terminal Services and TS Licensing on same server. Now a bit different, TS Licensing on DC and Terminal Services on memeber server. So I am not sure any issue if TS Licensing run on DC and Terminal Server run on memeber server.

Hope you get what I mean. Thanks.

Your setup is fine.  The member server will issue CALs from the DC.

How do I check license is successfully issue by memeber server? Where can I check from DC or member server? Can you advise?
0
 
DarylxCommented:
Open the TS Licensing console on the domain controller.  There you can view the CALs that have been issued and which computers they are issued to.

Just now I have remote access to Terminal Server using my PC, but I can not see my computer name in TS Licensing console on the DC. Issued is "0" in TS Licensing Console. Why.

DarylxCommented:
Did you install Terminal Services in Application Mode?  Look in the event viewer for Terminal Services errors.

star78Author Commented:

Hi Darylx, I just checked the TS Licensing again, now I saw my PC name appear in TS Licensing but it is in the "Temporary Licenses for Windows Server 2000" I have activated 20 Licenses, why computer name appear in the Temporary Licenses?

DarylxCommented:
That can happen if the TS Licensing server is configured for "Per Device Cals" but you have installed "Per user cals".  Do you have User CALs or Device CALs?
0
 
star78Author Commented:
For User CAL I configured Per Device or Per User, the license I bought is per user, configuration should be correct.

Back to TS Licensing, there is only one type CAL is it? Per Device.

Server CAL is Per User, TS CALs is device, does this wrong?

How do I correct it? Hope you can advise.

DarylxCommented:
On the member server, open Administrative Tools > Terminal Server Configuration.  Click on the server folder.  In the right hand window look at the 'Licensing'.  It will say Per User or Per Device.  This needs to be the same as your TS Licenses.

star78Author Commented:
Do you mean the Terminal Services Configuration?

I can not find Per User or Per Device.

in Server Setting folder, what I see as below:-

Terminal server mode    =>  Application Server
Delete temporary folders on exit => Yes
Use temporary folders per session ==> Yes
Internet Connector Licensing  => Disable
Active Desktop   =>   Enable
Permission Compatibility ==> Terminal Server 4.0 Users
