how to transfer terminal server licences
Posted on 2009-04-30
Hi experts and other helpful people,
I have a simple problem thats preventing me from using my Terminal Server CALs. I have a 2 year old server running 2003 SBS Server, I had purchased a 30 user CAL Open Licence for Terminal Server and installed these 2 years go on this server, they have been working great. However, I have just upgraded to a new server also running 2003 SBS Server, and have attempted to install these 30 CALs onto it for Terminal Server use. I have instaled TS licencing, and then activated the server with a Microsoft licence officer. This was successful. I then went through the telphone process to install my 30 CALs for TS, and this also appeared to be a successful procedure. However, when i attempt to connect to my server using Remote Desktop Connection, I can only get 2 connected then i get the "allowed number of allowed connections has been exceeded" message come up. Why arent my TS Cals taking effect after being installed? Is there something else I have to do?
Your urgent responses and suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot guys!
