Terminal Services Licensing

I have a 2K8 Server with 5 Terminal Server Per Device CAL's installed. I deactivated them and reactivated using Per User Licensing. The User CAL's are not accepting licensing but the device cals still are. How can I change the licensing. The server is not in a domain.

As far as I am aware, you CANNOT change the licensing once you have decided what they will be.  (indeed, as I understood RDS licensing, it wasn't a selection - it's what you bought).

CALs in generally cannot be reassigned for 90 days once assigned and RDS CALs are prevented from being change for 90 days from the last use.

I understood you could could deactivate and then change the type of license when you reactivate which I did. Both license types show up but only the device license accepts connections.
