Rename the Remote Desktop services License Server

We have few Windows 2008 R2 servers in test environment. We also have windows 2003 Terminal License servers and terminal servers in production environment.  We are planning to replace the Windows 2003 TS License server with New windows 2008 R2 License server and put the Windows 2003 host name to windows 2008 server.

Is there any impact/implications if we rename the RD License server after the activation and CALs installation. Or we have to rename and then activate the License server and Install the CALs.

Please help on this query.

No there is no impact to this, just to be on the safe side rename then activate where possible, MS SQL is the main product that has issues with renames in MS family.

No impact but ensure to remove the old license server name and enter the new license server name for each of your TS host servers.
