Win2000 TS Changed domain membership, LSServer fails: Please help.

Post by SmFu » Wed, 11 Oct 2006 04:06:04


Hello,

I'm in the middle of a domain migration. And have run into a problem:
A win2000 TS running in an NT4 domain has changed it's membership to
a Win2003 AD Domain. Now, when i reboot the server the Terminal Services
Licensing services fails to start with an Event ID 29. : Terminal Services
licensing can only be run on domain controllers or server is a workgroup. ..

Now i have installed the terminal services licensing service on the win2003
domain controller. Is this it or do I have to do more ? Is my licensing
covered now or will
the licenses expire in 90 days?


Thanks in advance,


Jan

You should verify that the Terminal Server can locate the TS
Licensing Server on the 2003 DC. It's possible that it has been
hardcoded to use the previous LS. If that's the case, you'll have
to remove the registry entry alltogether, or change it to point to
the new DC.

If all of your clients run W2K Pro or XP Pro, and you didn't have
any license packs installed on the previous LS, then is it it.
But if you do have low-level or none-Windows clients and thus need
purchased licenses, then you have to phone the Clearinghouse to get
your license packs re-issued for installation on the new LS.
