Removing Terminal Server licensing from SBS 2003
Posted on 2012-09-14
I have migrated SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, the 2003 has not yet been removed. I also have15 terminal server cal's installed on the SBS 2003 box which were for another Windows Server 2003 that was part of the domain but that we no longer use,the SBS server was managing the licenses. I would like to remove these TS licenses from the old server so that I can reinstall on the new (the licenses are for either 2003 or 2008). I'm not seeing a way to do that. The migration doc talks about transferring a license but I'm not sure I can since the installed license say Windows Server 2003 and I will be putting these on a 2008 server. I would like the new SBS 2011 server to manage the licenses, TS will be running on a different 2008 server. I can uninstall terminal server licensing in add/remove programs, windows components but I'm not sure if that's what I want to do.
