what's the easiest way to move the Terminal Services (TS) License
currently have a single NT4 domain with a w2k member server running TS
which also has the TSLS installed and activated. I haven't yet
installed any TSCALs but have had a few w2k clients connect.
as the plan is to migrate to w2k domain and TSLS needs to be on a
Domain Controller, I want to move it off the existing TS server to a
new w2k member server which can be made into a DC.
my approach was simply going to be to install/activate TSLS on the new
box and deactivate on the old box - there shouldn't be a need to
actually uninstall the TSLS although if I can I'd prefer to.
I can't see that this has any implications for the existing licences
as they are 'built-in' to the clients that have connected so far. When
they first connect to the new TSLS the entries should be re-created.
What I'm not clear about is whether the TS writes a token back to the
w2k clients, and if so how this would be interpreted by the new TSLS.
Also, do I need to inform MS Clearinghouse that old TSLS has been
deactivated and get rid of the certificate?
