This is odd.  I may have messed something up but everything is working
just fine.
I saw some errors in the event log about not being able to issue a
client license.  This was on a Windows 2003 Server with Metaframe Xpa
FR/SP3.  No big deal because all of my clients are connecting.

I decided to take a look at my license server which is a Windows 2000
Server with SP6 and it only shows about 4 licenses have been issued out
of the 125 we have.  The rest are all showing up as available.  Only 22
temp licenses have been issued.

This is the same license server we had running prior to moving form
Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 on our terminal servers.  Almost all of the
licenses were issued when we were running Windows 2000.

I missed something during the upgrade but I am not sure what.  Like I
said, everything is running fine and none of my users have had trouble
connecting.  Most of them connect from thin client terminals with a few
fat clients connecting at our corporate headquarters.

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you
know, in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest
constraint to scaling up?! Get this free white paper to understand the
real constraints & how to overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather
than buying more servers.
