Hello,

I have activated and installed license on my Windows 2003 Server TS box, and
during the license installation process I specified that Per Client Licenses
would be installed.

However, now that users have again connected, I see that Per Device licenses
are being distributed, on a Temporary basis, instead of using my Per Client
licenses, of which none have been distributed.

Is there a setting somewhere that defines what should be used?

Any help appreciated!

First of all: there are no Per Client licenses. From the rest of
your post, I understand that you mean Per User licenses.

You have installed your licenses as Per User, and now you have to
tell the Terminal Server to use the "Per User" licensing mode. The
default is "Per Device".
You can check this from Administrative Tools - Terminal Services
Configuration - Server Settings - Licensing Mode
If it's set to Per Device mode, it will look for a Device TS CAL
and will not issue your Per User TS CALs.

Check this article, it explains that even after you have
switched licensing mode on the TS, your Per User TS CAL count will
not be decremented:

Thanks Vera,

Yes Per Client is what I meant, sorry for the confusion. Have been away for
a couple of weeks so have just implemented this and am about to read that
article you have mentioned.

Thanks for your help.
