Interesting you bring this up.  I have 0 issues with this in the past.  =
I
knew it was a possible issue when I was deploying Nfuse site wide in a
locked down desktop environment but I was told the users have write =
access
to the key on the XP image that was deployed.  Now we started loading =
the
latest hot fixes on the server and desktops, now am having the issue.
Setting the reg key to Auth users\Write fixes the problem.  Just need to =
do
it for 5000 client desktops is the other issue.  Have fun, and hope it =
works
for you.  I have included a little more information taken from the CTX =
KB.
Issue 1

When connecting with a Citrix ICA Client after downloading an RDP Web
Client, the RDP Client may not exhibit any problems and continue to =
connect.

Background

With Microsoft licenses (both regular CAL and Terminal Services CAL), if =
not
connecting from a Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Professional =
based
client, before an ICA connection is established, the client license must =
be
confirmed to exist. Insufficient permissions to this registry key =
results in
connection failures. If the connection continues to fail, check the
Microsoft Terminal Services License manager to see if the workstation is
enumerated. If not, this is not considered a Citrix issue. For more
information, Contact Microsoft Support. Verify that your Windows 2000
Terminal Licenses are activated. For more detailed information, see the
Microsoft White Paper: "MS Windows 2000 Terminal Services Licensing."

Cause

The event log does not specify the client device that provided the =
invalid
license. Insufficient permissions are being applied to the Microsoft =
license
key in the registry for the Authenticated Users group. When testing, =
attempt
to create an RDP connection after removing the MSLicense key in the =
registry
as a user (no Domain Admin or Power User Group); the RDP connection will
also fail.

Resolution

These changes take effect from the client device.=20

NOTE: If you are making a desktop connection, then opening Program
Neighborhood inside the desktop session (Pass-through) and the =
subsequent
ICA connection is failing, the affected Workstation, in this case, is
actually the server.

1.
 Open the Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
=20
2.
 Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing.
=20
3.
 Highlight this key, select Security on the toolbar, and select =
Permissions.

=20
4.
 Click the Advanced key.
=20
5.
 Verify that the Authenticated Users group is in Permissions Entries.=20
Note: If this group is not found, click Add, select the Users Group, and
click OK.
In Permission Entry for MSLicensing, give full control to the Users =
group
and click OK. In the Access Control Settings for MSLicensing, click =
Apply,
then OK. In Permission Entry for MSLicensing, click Apply and then OK.
=20
6.
 Attempt to connect using the Win32 Client.

I'm having a strange licensing issue.  I run our TS license server on
one of the W2K domain controlers and have one W2K server running in
application mode.  As a normal user I cannot access the server via a TS
client, but if I "run As" a domain admin account from the same work
station I connect to it.  The TS server gets a log entry of 'The server
cannot issue a client license.  I'm lost here, any ideas?

Thanks,

George
