Guest

I have a thin client which connects to a Terminal Server 2K with Citrix
installed.
Application popup "terminal Server License will expire in x days, contact
your admin"
Already reinstalled and actived terminal CALS, installed hotfix 825027.
My Terminal server license are installed om a diff server then the Citrix
server it self.

Also found out that the license logging service on by PDC is not running,
but dont now it has anything to do with this. (I am unable to start the
service)

This sounds vaguely familiar to a situation I ran into once. Check the host
name of the client - is it in the temp license section of TS License Manager?
WHat happened to me was a client had a temp license and would not pull from
the availiable TS CALS. So, on the client, delete the reg key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing
(always export the key first for safety first)
Then when you go into another session - you should see that hostname grab a
license.
The MSFT doc for this is at:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323597

hope I understood right and this solves it.

Richatct U had it almost right, except I've a Thin client so no regedit to
delete the key.
After i reinstalled de TS licenses I have no temp licenses any more in my
License manager.

The equivalent of deleting the license from the registry on a thin
client is to reset the client to the factory defaults.
Have you checked with your hardware vendor if there is a firmware
update for your model?

Did a reset factory defaults, no help. No updates
I thought the licenses are assigned to your mac address?

More ideas?

Can't I reset the assinged temp licenses in anyway? (remove a db or something)

Yes, you can reset all TS licensing information (which means you
have to phone the Clearinghouse to get your licenses re-issued).
As a last resort, you could try it, but I am not convinced that it
will solve the problem. As I understand it, your LS is functioning
correctly (issueing TS CALs to your other clients), and the problem
is in the client rather than the server.
