Migration of TS Licensing Server


Teo Chee Yang

I am going to migrate the TS Licensing Server from NT4
domain to Win2K3 domain. Is there any thing that I should
be aware of? Will there be any impact to the licensing
database once I've migrated it to the new domain?

Have sure your Windows 2003 TS licensing server is
activated and has TSCALs installed. Also, be sure that
the terminal server can correctly connect to the license

The basic steps are:

1. install the TS Licensing service on one of your Domain
2. De-activate the old LS
3. Activate your new LS

5. Install the re-issued licenses
6. Verify that the TS finds the LS
7. If the TS does not find the new LS because you hardcoded the
address of the old LS into the registry, remove the registry entry
