How to Transfer Terminal Services Licensing from one Server to another?

Dear Sir,

I have 2 domain controllers, one primary and the second one replica. Win 2003 Server.
I have also 3 Terminal Servers (Windows 2003 Enterprise), clients are connecting to those Terminal Servers for sessions.
The license of the terminal services is installed on the primary DC.
Those Terminal Servers are licensed activated by the Domain Controller.

I want to transfer this license to the second DC, since I already transfered all the FSMO roles to the second DC because I want to migrate to Windows server 2008 DC.

How can I transfer Terminal Server licensing from one server to another?
When I click on Terminal Server Licensing on the TS Servers it connect directly to the Domain Controller where the license is already installed.
I cannot take this DC offline before I transfer the license to another location. Otherwise, I will have problem with sessions.

Please I need a help on how to transfer Terminal Services license to another server.

Thankn You!

Refer this:

Also the Microsoft Provides free support for the Terminal Services Licensing. It is better to get in touch with them

Hope this helps,

Hi Shree,

In fact I don't want to move terminal services from one to another.
Is it possible to install Terminal Server Licensing on the second server then activate...
Uninstall the Terminal Server Licensing from the first DC.
So the TS Servers can reallocate to the new server and take the license...

You need to install the terminal server licensing role on the second server and uninstall it from the first server. then you need to activate the second server.
the TS server should automatically find the new TS licensing server and get their licenses from it...

Is it right?
