Terminal server 2003 not recognising installed licenses

Users are getting licensing errors saying there is only 5 days left until the temporary licenses expire. However the Terminal server is pointing at the license server and is showing the active full licenses that have been installed.
Setup is a 2003 terminal server and a 2003 SBS server with licensing installed and installed licenses. Both servers were installed about 115 days ago.

You've installed "Per User" TS CALs, but your terminal server is set to request "Per Device" CALs. Start the Terminal Services Configuration MMC, select "Server Settings", double-click "Licensing Mode", and set the Licensing Mode to "Per User".

In addition, you might have to set the "LicensingGracePeriodEnded" registry entry as described here:
