Cannot find Windows 2003 Terminal Server License Server
Posted on 2009-05-13
We have three "domain controllers / file servers" - which have Windows 2003 standard 64 bit. We have a separate Windows 2003 standard 32 bit, which we use as a Terminal Server, which is a member on the domain.
The license server is residing on the primary domain controller (PDC).
When we log on to the Terminal Server via rdp, the following message appears:
"Cannot find Windows 2003 Terminal Server License Server"...
"This computer is past its grace period and needs to connect to a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server License Server; otherwise, Terminal Server will stop working. Click here to launch Terminal Services Configuration tool to assign a valid License Server.
When I click "here" Terminal Services Coniguration\Connections window comes up.
Under Server Settings, in License server discovery mode, I have changed it to "As specified", and have specified the PDC as the license server. When I click "Check names" the following message comes up:
"The specified License Servers are valid Windows 2003 Terminal server License Servers"
When I go to Terminal Server Licensing. The PDC is listed as "Windows Server 2003 - TS Per User CAL" with 17 open licenses.
Why does the message keep appearing every time anyone logs onto Terminal Server?
Is there something I have missed?
