[THIN] Re: TS license problem


As Bruce suggests this information is kept on the Citrix servers:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\MSLicensing

But if licenses are kept on the Citrix server, how do the other servers know
that a license was already issued?
Example:

1) Diskless client connects to server1, a license is issued and placed on
server1.
2) Diskless client connects to server2, where is the license?  back on
server1.  Does another license get issued?

Hector,

   Somehow it must keep track because I'm logging in with a Linux
client and since I've already logged in before, the license count
does not go up.

Thanks for replying.
All my devices (Neoware and NCD Exploras) don't have a registry.  =
Therefore,
I suppose licenses are being stored on the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\MSLicensing.
All my servers have lots of licenses there.  Can you explain how this =
key is
used?
I know you've explained that this key stores licenses for diskless =
clients;
however what's process for obtaining a license.   I know how a license =
gets
issued, the 90 day rule, etc, but all this applies to systems with a
registry.  In my case, that does not apply.
Example:

1) Neoware gets a license from the license server and it's stored on
MetaFrame server 1.
2) Next time, Neoware goes to MF Server 2.  Does it get another license?
Since it does not have a registry, how can the license server determine
whether a license is needed?

I don't think I'm the only one using Linux based Neowares.  How are =
people
dealing with this licensing mess?

The WTS CALS are normally stored in the registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing on the device logging =
into
WTS.
If the device is not capable of storing the WTS-CAL because it has not
registry, then MetaFrame will store it within the registry on the
WTS/MetaFrame server under=20
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\MSLicensing

I would assume MS is asking you to clear out the licenses within
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\MSLicensing .

One thing to be aware of when you start to see multiple CALS assigned to =
the
same device on the WTS-LS, is that if the user logging into WTS does not
have sufficient privileges on the device (a device with a registry such =
as a
NTe thin client or PC) to write to the registry, the WTS CAL is not =
retained
although the WTS-LS issues one.  Thus the next person who logs into WTS =
on
that Device is assigned another CAL.  If they cannot write to the =
registry
the CAL is not retained again, and so on.

Some of my Neoware clients and NCD exploras are taking more than one TS
license or expired licenses are not being reissued. I called Microsoft
support and they recommended that I install SRP1 on all my Windows =
Terminal
servers as well as on the License Server ad then re-activate the license
server. I can definitely do this. What's weird is that they also said =
that I
should clear license information on my Citrix servers.  To my =
understanding
the Terminal servers do NOT keep TS license information.  I asked them =
how
to do this and they said to call Citrix. If I'm wrong, can anyone tell =
me
how to clear TS license information on the Terminal Servers?
