[THIN] Re: FW: DCPromo-ing a Win2K TS Licensing Server

In a 2000 AD environment, TS Licensing does have to be on a DC.
DefaultLicenseServer only works for NT 4 domains.  However, you do NOT
want your citrix server to be a domain controller - it's bad design.
So, your best bet is to move the Licensing service to your DC (or a new
one, if you want to build it).  It doesn't take up much resources, so
your main DC is ok.  It sounds like you have a smaller environment so it
shouldn't be a problem.  I'm working on finding the directions to move
licensing - but wanted to make sure you didn't dcpromo - so I'm sending
this partial post.

Michael,

I'm pretty sure you can point your TS servers to a TS license serve
using
this reg key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TermService\Parameters\
Defa
ultLicenseServer

DefaultLicenseServer is a string, and add the server name as the data.

Subject: [THIN] FW: DCPromo-ing a Win2K TS Licensing Server


I just upgraded my NT Domain to AD. I have a Win2K TS; this server had
been
a member server in my NT domain. After the AD upgrade, the TS Licensing
stopped working, saying it could not locate a license server.
Apparently,
the TS Licensing server must run on a DC, when you have an AD domain. So
apparently I need to either DCPromo my TS server, or transfer the TS
licensing service to a DC. Since I only have 1 DC (at the moment;
haven't
built another one yet), I figure it's easier to just DCPromo the TS
server.
I realize that will cause a reboot, and interrupt my guys; no problem.=20

My question - will I need to do anything else to get the licensing to
work
again? I won't have to re-activate all my licenses all over again, will
I?

Any help appreciated.
