Windows 2008 Terminal Server CAL issue

Hi guys,

We have a Windows 2008 terminal server here that has 27 per device CALS on it. The server is claiming all CALs are used and yet when I look at what machines they have been allocated to there are only 22 machines in there..

So 5 CALs seem to have gone walkabout or are at least not visible. I'm pretty sure we should still have free CALs on this box. Any ideas what I can check?

Thats could be interesting on device CALS.

the fun part of device CALS is if any piece of hardware connect to the TS, it will consume the CALS (i.e. phone, personal laptop, and etc),  

I was really thinking whether it is a bug or it just eaten by unknown devices?

Thanks!

I rebuilt the TS licensing database which has fixed the fault.
