How to release or move TS CAL license (per user) to be used by another user?


We solve the problem with the Terminal Services on Windows Server 2003.
The licence server has 10 TS CALs per user installed.  Some of the users
are going to move and some new users will use the server instead of them.

Is there any way to release some of the "per user TS CALs" to be bound to
new users?

Another solution would be to move some per user licenses with the user
to another license server.

pepr--A MS KB article has this to say
"For help in transferring your terminal server client access licenses from a down-level terminal services licensing server to a Windows Server 2008-based terminal services licensing server, contact the Microsoft Product Activation Group at 1-888-571-2048.

The Microsoft Product Activation Group also provides help for the following Terminal Services-related tasks:
Activate a license server
Install licenses on a license server
Reinstall licenses on a license server
Downgrading licenses "
Perhaps they would help with Win Server 2003

Per User licensing is NOT tracked neither enforced. So there is nothing to worry here. As long as you have enough licenses legally speaking, you are ok.
