I had to do a repair reinstall on a 2008 Terminal Server (did it as an upgrade within Windows) and now not all my Terminal Server Licenses are active.  Currently, we have an Open License for 5 which is installed and working fine but I can not install the other 2 individual license I have????

When I enter the license code it says  (License code not recognized).

Please help.

Hi,

Start - Administrative Tools - Remote Desktop Services - Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration
In there look for Remote Desktop License Servers - right click on and select Properties
Is your license server pointing to the correct server in there?

There is an useful article which details about TS trouble shooting which might help you http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2008/02/01/licensing-diagnosis-problems-and-resolutions.aspx

You may have to place a call to the Microsoft Clearinghouse. They maintain licensing info for Terminal Services/Remote Desktop Services.

Radhakrishnan Rajayyan I followed the Article and ended up having to Install the CAL via Web Browser. I had it setup Automatic before which didn't work.....

We are now in business!
