I have just purchased a new Dell Server runing Server 2008 R2 Foundation. This was recommended to me as it will just act as  Terminal Server (Remote Dekstop Server as called now). I have added the server to the domain and installed the RDP Licenses. All is fine except I get an error message everytime I logon saying "The Server does not comply with the end user license agreement because it belongs to a domain that comtains more than 15 user accounts. If the server belongs to a domain, the EULA for the server permits a maximum of 15 user acounts. For more information click Help".
The main server is a Small Business Server 2003.
Can I get around this or stop the error coming up. Does it have an impacy on the runing of the server. What does it mean?
Thanks

As the error message says, Foundation server allows for a maximum of 15 users in the domain. How many users have you got in Active Directory?

As far as I know, you will need to purchase a full standard licence, then you can go to 75 users (SBS) limit.

is this a license or a complete reload of the server operating system?

If you purchase a standard licence, you need to re-install.
