In tip 6332 ยป How do I select a preferred Windows 2000 Terminal Services license server in a domain or site?, we configured a Windows 2000-based terminal server to access a specific license server.

To configure a Windows Server 2003-based terminal server to access a specific license server:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window on the Windows Server 2003-based terminal server.

2. Type the following command and press Enter, where <LicenseServerName> is the NetBIOS name of the server, or the IP Address of the server, or the FQDN (Fully-Qualified Domain Name) of the server:

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters\LicenseServers\<LicenseServerName>" /F

3. Shutdown and restart the Windows Server 2003-based terminal server.

NOTE: I would also type:

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters" /V DefaultLicenseServer /T REG_SZ /F /D "<NetBIOSLicenseServerName>"

Where <NetBIOSLicenseServerName> is the NetBIOS name of the license server.
