I've just finished installing a Windows 2008 server standard addition and added the Terminal services role. I point the server to look at my Win 2003 terminal server licensing server and it sees it and accepts it as a valid server. But i still keep getting pop up messaged telling i have 100 or so days left and if the server does not see a licensing server terminal services will stop working.

I couldn't find any docs telling me that i could not use a 2003 licensing server for a 2008 terminal server!!!

Other info ( I have it set for "per user mode")

A W2k8 Terminal Server requires a W2k8 TS Licensing server, a W2k8 won't do.

You must have 2008 Licensing server that have 2008 Terminal Server CALs installed on it for the Clients to access the 2008 TS. Right now you are running in grace time that MS gives you when the time is up you will not be able to access the 2008 TS server.

A windows 2008 termnial server will not work with a Windows 2003 terminal server licensing server. It has to be a 2008 licensing server.
Found the answer in the application event log. Thanks for the responses.
