Your terminal services temporary client license will expire in x days. Please contact your system administrator to get a permanent license

I have a number of Mac users in the office and they use Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection to access a Windows 2003 Server. They have recently started receiving the message mentioned in the title when they log in to the Windows Server.

I have a seperate license server which is set to per user rather than per device.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Make sure that the terminal server is configured to request Per User CALs.
On the TS, start the Terminal Services Configuration MMC in Administrative Tools, go to Server Settings, and set the licensing to "Per User".

That is already the case. I have no problems with any Windows clients connecting to it, just seems to be these two Mac's. I myself use a Mac and have no problem connecting to it.
