Lost track of our Terminal Licensing Server

Posted on 2012-08-16

Hello - we can't seem to find the licensing server for our Windows 2003 Terminal Servers we're currently running.  We know we installed the licensing server in 2008, in order for 100 users to be able to use our ERP software on the network.  This is still working today, but when we go to the TS licensing screen on the servers we would have put it on, it says "no server found".  So - we're at a loss as to how this happened.  Any ideas out there?

    On the 2008 Server, make sure the feature/role is installed.

    Make sure that the 2003 servers can resolve the name/ip of the 2008 server using DNS.

    ok - thanks for your response.  I think your suggestion assumes I know WHICH server my license server is, which I can no longer find.  the servers we thought it would have been are showing "no server found" when we go to the TS Licensing window. so - the question how do we FIND the server? it must be somewhere, correct? can terminal licensing still run without a license server physically on the network??
