Must Have Terminal Server User Access Permissions--Error

MGA2 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We have 3 node Citrix farm and a few months I added the third server. It worked just fine and all the sudden I started receiving the message indicated in the subject. I have reviewed several articles on Citrix/Microsoft & questions here on Experts Exchange but no results

We are running PS4/WI3 on Server 2003. Our other 2 servers have never had this issue.

System Event Logs:

Warning:The terminal server could not locate a license server. Confirm that all license servers on the network are registered in WINS/DNS, accepting network requests, and the Terminal Server Licensing Service is running

Error: The terminal server licensing grace period has expired and the service has not registered with a license server with installed licenses.  A terminal server license server is required for continuous operation.  A terminal server can operate without a license server for 120 days after initial start up.

I am repeatedly receiving the above warning/errors. I have looked at many settings including ICA/RDP permissions & settings, local security policy, remote desktop users group, TS installed etc. I compared all the servers with the other two and have not discovered anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
