  • Moving Win2K License server

    Hello,

    We own two Windows 2000 Terminal Servers on which users can logon. One of the server has the 'TS License Server' installed on it and the other one has the most of the applications on it. Now we want to 'retire' the one with the 'TS License Server' installed on it, can we transfer the 'TS License Server' with all of the Cal's (User and TS) to the other remaining Server without losing the validation and/or licenses?

    And if so how to handle this...

    Thanks in advantage,

    Victor

    * Please make sure that you have the licenses in hard copy & backup the servers first.

      Re: Moving Win2K License server

      Hello,

      Thanks for the reply, but is it neccesary to contact our local Microsoft office or is it possible to DIY? Calling Microsoft in Holland is as slow as calling to Mars...

      This link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306578/EN-US/ you send speaks of activating and/or deactivating the license server. Is it possible to deactivate the one server and install the license server role onto the other and activate it again without losing the licenses? Will the server certificate which Microsoft hands out installed again?

        Yes, you must call the Microsoft Clearing House to move licenses from one server to another. There is no DIY.
