Windows 2003 Terminal Service Licensing Issue

Hi,

I have a question about Windows Terminal Server licensing.

When I log into the licensing server I see the following:
Existing Windows 2000 server - terminal Service Cal (per device) Built-in Unlimited
Temporary Licenses for Windows Server 2003 - Terminal Service Device Cal Token Temporary

I also get a system event warning of:

The Terminal Server Licensing server <lic Server> has no permanent licenses for product 'Windows Server 2003 - Terminal Server Per Device CAL Token'. Use Terminal Server Licensing administrative tool to register more licenses. The Terminal Server <Terminla server> was refused licenses of type 'Windows Server 2003 - Terminal Server Per Device CAL Token' due to this condition.

I am new at this company and I am trying to figure out if they actually have terminal service licenses for Windows 2003.  From my past experience I have always used per user Cal and I have never experienced this issue

Thank you for all your help in advance

It sounds like they only setup the TS server with the temp 120 day license unlimited and never bought or registered actual licenses.

Hmm,

Our current uses get an error message that their license is going to expire every 90 days and what they do is a registry fix where they delete the license entry.  

If the license server only had temporary licenses then it should stop.  Is that correct
