Sorry, was out yesterday dealing w/ kids and school issues.  Take a look
at knowledgebase article 237607 pertaining to using REGINI.EXE to script
the permisson changes.  We use ScriptLogic here, so I'll be pushing w/
that, I'll know here in a few minutes how it works.=20

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.
=20

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
