Remove TS CALs from Server 2008

WE recently changed our licensing model with Microsoft, and I need to reinstall a bunch of T CALs for Server 2008 (not R2).  In 2008 R2, you can go to RD Licensing Manager > right-click Server > choose Manage Licenses and then remove the CALs.

But in 2008 non-R2, that Manage LIcenses option isn't there.  So how do I get rid of all the current CALs so I can install my new ones?

No, because look at the first screenshot.  It mentions the Manage Licenses option.

So you're trying to remove from R2, corret?  I was confused.

You will need to rebuild the license database:

I'm trying to remove from 2008.  The 2008 R2 ones are no problem b/c I can use the Manage Licenses option.

This link doens't help b/c it only applies to 2008 R2.

Found the solution.  You have to do this:

1. Stop TS Licensing Service.
2. Go to c:\windows\system32\lserver\
3. Rename TSLic.edb to TSLic.old.
4. Restart TS Licensing Service.
5. Install new licenses.
