Terminal Server licenses not activated

I have SBS 2003 running AD, terminal services is installed & activated. 5 user cals were purchased & installed & I contacted MS to activate the licenses.

If I have a look at the TS Licensing I see, Existing windows 2000 server – Terminal Service CAL Token (per device) builtin, unlimited Windows server 2003- Terminal server Per user CAL Token, open, 5.

The problem is that without licenses you are allowed 2 RDP connections to the server but now that the licenses have been installed, it still only allows the 2 concurrent connections, not  the 5.

How does one fix this issue & actually unlock the full potential of the licenses bought?

SBS is NOT designed to accept remote connection for non admin.

IF you need TS you must install on a seperate server and you can use your TS CALs on the new one.
