[THIN] Re: Licensing server problem

That is my thinking as well.  Plus it doesn?t need to be a beefy box
either

but why is it the proper way ??

It seems to me that either will work so it doesn't really matter ??

In my opinion it is better not to have it on the DC as this is already
busy doing its own thing.

That is the proper way for an NT 4.0 Domain.  For a windows 2000 domain,
it needs to be on a DC.

We run our Lic server in a NT4 domain and the lic server is not a PDC
just a Win2K member server.

Everything works fine...

Let me get this straight...you are saying that if he has other 2000
Terminal Servers on the domain that he can make a member 2003 server the
Licensing server to control licensing for 2000 TS's? And this will work?

3rd option: install the 2003 licensing server on the 2003 TS itself. 4th
option: install the 2003 licensing server on any 2003 machine and point
the TSs to there.

Hmm, so if I'm understanding this correctly my 2 options are
1. upgrade the PDC to 2003 and install the licensing server on it. 2.
Downgrade the terminal server to 2000 and install the licensing server
on the PDC. both options SUCK! I've always said that licensing just
screws over the honest people.

Can you still buy windows 2000 server?
