Hi Experts,

A Client of ours has a Terminal Server 2003 which the hardware needs to be upgraded. The problem being is that we need to export the Terminal Server Cals which have been installed, how do we do this? Usually is would be straight forward, if the client knew where they placed there License Certificates.
Can  you help?

You can't. the TS CALs are tied to the exact server on whch they were activated.
It's usually best practice to install the TS license server on a DC, because this is far less likely from having to be rebuilt.
So install your new TS LS, activate it, then call the Microsoft Clearinghouse (use "activate licenses over telephone" for the number) to have them re-issue you your licenses. Have the "paper" licenses at hand when calling.
