Terminal Server Licensing

Q: Terminal Server Licensing


Apologies if this is not the correct forum but I figured it was closest.

When I log onto one of our new Windows 2003 terminal servers I get the error message:

"Your terminal services temporary client license will expire in 6 days. Please contact your system administrator to get a permanent license"

I looked for part of the message on the net and got the following ...

The function of Terminal Server CALs in Windows Server 2003

... which told me that the solution was:

1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Terminal Services Configuration.
2. Click Server Settings, and then double-click Licensing Mode.
3. Change the Licensing Mode to Per User, and then click OK.

The problem I have is that if I do that I cannot change the licensing mode as the box is greyed out (no drop down).

This problem will cause the collapse of a major system within a few days so I am asking for help as I do not know what the solution is.


Preferred Solution: Terminal Server Licensing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Terminal Server Licensing

The TS needs to be licensed and it doesn't think it is. Are you using this just for the admin connections (2max) or for users to logon? If its for users you need to register that box with your license server for the TS cals.

edit: this may help http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325869

I have a Windows 2003 domain with 2 sites and planning a third with site configuration to make the users go to their local windows DC for authentication etc.

I was wondering how I should do the Terminal Server Licensing server since this if there is only one in the Enterprise or Domain (same thing here) then how will people in the remote offices get their licenses. Over slow WAN links?

Is it possible to have a terminal server licensing server at each location, so if the vpn going down as sometimes happens then they are still able to use their local Terminal Servers (ie the local Terminal Servers can still contact the Licensing server needed to run the remote sessions because it is local)?
Has anybody had to face this issue? What have you done about it?

The answer to this might be a call to MS licensing........

I have a 2k server that has recently been wiped and reinstalled from scratch.

I deactivated the Terminal Server licensing ok and then reactivated it ok.

The problem I am having is with the clients. W98 clients are only getting a 90 day temporary license.

This would lead me to believe that the license isn't activated but when I try to activate it, Microsoft says that it has already been activated. Do I need to call them and have them "reset" the client licenses somehow?

On the server is there a way to delete the entry for that client?

On the client I tried deleting the registry entry under MSlicensing but still no luck.


A:Win2K Terminal Services client licensing not activating

I ended up calling MS. They reactivated the licenses. Once the license has been activated it doesn't automatically reset with Microsoft. They have to manually reset.

I don't know if this is help for our server or Excel I am looking for. Here is the issue...

Whenever one lady is logged into a session on our server, she opens a word document that has an Excel worksheet embedded in it. The second she tries to click on the Excel worksheet, Dr. Watson makes a call and hits me with the following message...

When she tries to just open the Excel program, she gets this error:

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

I've been having a lot of trouble with this and I hope someone here can shed some light on this for me...It's driving me crazy! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

We're using Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Server/Application Server mode. the Clients are Win98 boxes. Every so often, (once or so every 2 to 3 months) all of a sudden, All the Printers will disappear and a reboot seems to be the only way to get them back. I've tried restarting the Spooler with no effect. I've gone to Microsoft's site and been unable to find anything on the topic.

Last time this happened my System Log was full (could this cause that?). The last entry was:

I need a low down on how they now license 2003. I am looking to put together a 2003 server with Exchange and terminal services. Do I need a CAL for all 3 now? IE that would require 75 licenses for 25 users. Am I correct?

A:Server 2003 Licensing ?

WOW! I was under the impression that on the same server, 25 users would only require 25 licenses. That could get expensive in a hurry. Too bad you're "Cisco and Windows Server experienced, linux NOT", because you could use Linux.

I have a question about licensing for Windows Server 2003.
This is what I have:

Total Servers: 15

Main Office:
12 Servers
- Print Server
- Admin Server
- 3 Webservers
- Mail Server
- 2 Firewalls
- App Server
- Remote Server

Remote Office
3 Servers
- Firewall
- File Server

How do you know how many licenses do i need to have.
I have about 225 users & computers

Any advice would help!?

A:Windows Server 2003 Licensing

IMHO this is a question best answered by a Microsoft professional. What it really comes down to is which of those 225 clients accesses which server and the licensing method your organization uses (are you using per seat, user, or CPU licensing?).

Navigating Microsoft's licensing maze is problematic at best. Call the local MS office and make someone earn their weekly paycheck.

We have a Windows 2k Server, with about 18 domain users who log on every day and access files, printers etc.

The server came with 10 per server CALs. We have purchased 10 extra 'per user' CALs. I'm still getting a message saying "a product licensed in per server mode is nearing the maximum.... etc etc".

Do I need to change the licensing mode to 'per user / seat' instead of 'per server' for the new CALs to work? I want to make sure that this is the right thing to do, since it can only be done once!

Microsoft and all their licensing shenanigans.... what will we do with them eh?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there
available if you want to test it you can get a download via TECHNET SUBSCRIPTION.

Of course you can't use the technet download in a commercial organisation - but for developers etc who want experience in using etc etc then a technet subscription ~250 - 300 USD is a NO BRAINER IMO.

Also good for HOME users who want to learn about installing and using Servers.

If you look for promo codes you can probably get a discount too on your technet subscription.

Incidentally Students *might* be able to get a free or cheap version of W2008 Server too - same conditions not for commercial use of course.

Note the download from Technet doesn't have an expiry unlike the Free Trial download and you can use several copies.

Hi friends,

I have Vista Home Basic 32bit on my laptop. Currently I am using the Admin account. When I try to install ArcGIS 9.3 in my laptop, it shows some errors. I am struggling to install it. When I try to configure services it shows that "Failed to change FLEXlm License Server.You need to be an Administrator to perform this function". When I perform the server status enquiry it shows that
lmgrd is not running: Cannot connect to license server
The server (lmgrd) has not been started yet, or
the wrong [email protected] or license file is being used, or the
port or hostname in the license file has been changed.

FLEXlm error: -15,10. System Error: 10061 "WinSock: Connection refused"

Can anyone suggest a solution?

When I checked the System Configuration of my laptop i found only FLEXnet Licensing Services. And it is stopped also. Is it a reason for the problem? I am totally ignorant of this FLEXlm and FLEXnet

Hi all,
My task is to allow my accountant access to my MYOB files. He tells me his clients usually do it through Windows Terminal Services (which I guess is the Terminal Server software). A few questions to start: How do I find out if its been installed; how do I enable it? and how do I get into the configuration of it? I'm new to this one but Ive got Logmein and XPUnlimited to work in the (distant) past ....
The other totally newbie question I have is .... Once its setup, what does the person that wants to connect to my machine do to connect?

A:XP and Terminal Server

XP does not have Terminal Services; TS is available on Windows Server versions only. Instead, XP has a part of it called Remote Desktop. Certain versions of XP can act as a Remote Desktop server.

What are MYOB files, and what type of access does he need? (Meaning, what is he doing with them?)

BTW, which version of XP do you have?

Think I probably know the answer to this, but worth a shot.

I've got a bit of software that I've loaded onto our server and would like to be able to be accessed by people logging in.

When I run the application, it comes up saying that it can't be run on Windows Terminal Server.

Is there any options that I can adjust to enable this or will it simply not run?

A:Terminal Server

Probably not.... it usually helps to mention the software name though.

If it expressly says it won't run on terminal server then I highly doubt it will.

Hi all hope someone has an idea because I am clueless.
helping out a Real estate office, they have Windows 2000 server which shares files and has a few apps, and runs terminal server for about 25 on and off users. The server is bogging a bit at the terminal database program, so i figured adding a second 2000 server to ease the terminal services load made sense. Also thought why not make it a bdc as well, good backup, but use the bdc for terminal services, double duty. My 30 or so accounts with settings already created so makes sense.

I installed the second machine, added it and promoted it to 'seconday server'. Within 10 minutes my users are populated from the pdc in user manager, beautiful. Except I can't log in to the bdc at all with anything but 'administrator". Whether through terminal services, or right at the console, any account other that administrator fails. "The system could not log you on, be sure username and password are correct" etc.

Am I missing something? Can I do what I'm trying to do?

Any help or clues would be appreciated!

Thanks all

Hi guys,

We have recently upgraded all of our clients machines from XP to Win7 pro. and left all our servers on Win2003 st. edition. While on XP, users were able to connect and print on our terminal server which is running Win2003 but we have been having problems after the clients were upgraded to win7. User's printers are not being redirected now. Im not too sure if this is windows7 with win2003 issue or just HP drivers issue because all the printers are HP. I did try and find most of the HP win7 drivers to isolate the problem and I even downloaded HP univ. drivers but still the printer were not being redirected. What could be the issue here, I'm really confused.

A:Printing over a terminal server.

you'll need to install all the individual print drivers:

Printers and Faxes --> File --> Server Properties --> Drivers

If you want to avoid installing a hundred print drivers, you can install something like PrimoPDF (can get it from download.com for free) on the client machine and on the terminal server. If they print to PrimoPDF when in terminal services, it will bring it up in a PDF file on their end, and they can then print to whatever printers are attached to their machine.

You will also need to follow the article at the following address to make sure your printers can map to the terminal server:

This has been happening for a while now, several times per week. I notice activity on my Terminal Services Manager, and when I look at it I see that someone/something is trying every second to log onto it. It trys, gets bumped, and then immediately trys again.. until I disable my WAN to terminal server. Then he goes away when he can't hit it anymore.

Let him on my server, but in a digital sandbox environment? I used to be able to see an ip, for a split second, but now it appears its masked. I am using default port of 3389 to listen for my clients, so I am about to change that.. But still feels to passive. I am mad about seeing someone trying to break into my house (analogy).

I am trying to get Office XP Pro to work using terminal services. The problem is when my users log in and try to access an office application they get an error:

"Only Administrators have permissions to add, remove, or configure server software during a terminal services remote session. If you want to install software on the server, contact your administrator."

I also get two errors in my event log. I have attached screen shots of the errors. The only thing I know for sure is that it is some sort of permissions issue. If I add the users in question to the local admin group on the server the errors stop.

I have been online and researched this until my eyeballs have fallen out but have had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a NT 4.0 terminal server with the citrix server installed as well. The problem I am having is that when youre logged in and idle after a certain time you gett disconnected. Your processes still run on the server. When you log back in you're supposed to be right where you left off, however Word 2000 is coming back screwy where pages out of a document get scrambled. I want to bame this on word and temp files but not sure. Anyone else have any ideas? It only shows up in word so far adn only after a disconnect and reconnect.

Hi all,

My network administrator is gone for 2 weeks and so, wouldn't you know it, a term server has gone belly up. How do I set one up to communicate with it to set its config from my winxp computer? I need to assign it an IP address and subnet address, etc... to be able to telnet in and log the ports right?

the term server is a MRV 8008 and it came with a crossover cable and female 9 pin to rj45 adapter. I plugged the crossover cable from my com1 port to the number 1 port on the term server yet I am not able to make a connection to it.

any help would be great.

I have a client with a Win2008 R2 Terminal Server.  Last week Thursday, one of the users got pop ups for ransomware.  My helpdesk didn't think too much of it; the tech ran MBAM and thought he had it cleaned out.  The next day, it was back and affecting additional user profiles. It got escalated to me.  I ran MBAR and HitmanPro, and thought I had rooted it all out.  Unfortunately, we discovered that this was the CryptoLocker trojan; that the user had originally opened an infected email message on 9/18, and that by the time he started getting the ransomware pop ups on 9/26, several network shares were already encrypted. 
We've got good backups so i can restore the data back prior to the encryption point, and am in the process of doing so.  I've also run a scan using MBAR and Combofix on every PC and laptop on their network that I can get my hands on - that caveat because our primary contact thinks he's above all this and won't allow us to have our agent software on his machine, and there's one other machine that he doesn't even know who is using it or where it is.  I think I've got all the PCs stable and can vouch for the fact that they are not the source of the encryption; it really did originate with this user on the terminal server.  
My problem is this: after all this work, and 5 days into it, I discovered a new EXE in the appdata folder of the user originally infected.  So obviously, I haven't rooted the thing... Read more

I have a NT Terminal Server 4.0 set-up with Microsoft client, as well as, Novell client. I can logon to the Administrators account just fine. When I log-on using someone else, I get an error stating that the logon script didn't take effect.
-An application error has occurredand a log file is being generated "nwlscrpt.exe"
-Then it looks for DrWatson log file directory and doesn't find it

What do yo think this might be??
