How can I configure a preferred Terminal Services license server?

A. Windows 2000 Server Terminal Services usually uses a license server in the local domain; however, you might want to have a central license server for audit purposes or use a server in another domain. Perform the following steps to designate the license server you want a Terminal Services server to use:

  1. Start regedit.exe.
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ServicesTermService\Parameters.
  3. From the Edit menu, select New, String value.
  4. Enter a name of DefaultLicenseServer, and press Enter.
  5. Double-click the new value and set it to the name of the license server you want to use.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close regedit.exe.
  8. For the change to take effect, use the following commands to stop and restart the license logging service:

    C:\&gt; net stop "license logging service"<br>
    C:\&gt; net start "license logging service"<br><br>

If the preferred license server isn't available, a Terminal Services server uses the next available license server in the domain.
