I need to change the Windows Domain name and I'm happy with how to do this but I'm concerned that this will affect the terminal server licensing.

I know if you change the name of a Terminal server it can mess with the licensing so would not be surprised if it did the same with a domain name change. Can anyone clarify and if it is a problem is there a way round it?

You need to revoke the licence, reinstall the service and reinstall reinstall licence once again.

Or set the licensing server to its ip address rather than its name if you have it set to a static ip.

You should be able to; but, I would install Tweaking.com's registry backup utility and create a backup before I tried it: http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/registry_backup.html
That way, if it did cause problems, they can be undone by restoring the registry backup.
