Server 2003 TS CALs on Server 2008

I have several MS Server 2003 terminal servers, and the associated TS CALs for clients to connect with. The TS licensing server recently died, and I would like to rebuild that server as a 2008 (R2) machine instead of 2003. Can I "host" the licenses for TS 2003 on a Server 2008 machine?

Just to be clear, I will not have clients connecting to Terminal Services on Server 2008. My CALs and Terminal Services servers are 2003. I know you cannot "use" 2003 CALs on 2008 to connect clients. I just want to know if a 2008 machine can be the "license server" for those 2003 Terminal Services servers.

You can have a Windows 2008 Server running Terminal Server licensing which handles Windows 2003 Server Terminal Server CALs. Will not have any issues this is fine
