Client access license reservation

By fyrman24 ·
i am setting up a system to have a win2000 server with terminal services and 20 clients via windows 2000 machines. i have a 15 user license for the server and the terminal services licenses are covered by win2k pro. i have one user( the 21st client)who is going to purchase access to this machine but i need a way to reserve one of the CAL for him leaving 14 for the other users to use.( they don't use even that many at this time). due to cost restraints i can't upgrade the server license at thistime( it would have to go up another 6-10 users which may happen in next years budget, or not depending on number of denials

Client access license reservation

From what I understand, the first time you login to the Terminal Server from a W2K Pro client, a certificate is installed on the client machine that licenses it to the Terminal Server. That is, of course, if you have a license server installed. If you want to transfer a license from one workstation to another, you must call Microsoft. You can read more at:

Hope this helps!

i may not have explained enough, the terminal server license will be the one included in win 2000, not a license server. the client may or may not purchase a license instead of 2000, but the server still has only 5 cal regardless of terminal server. i need to know if i'm going to have to dedicate a 24 hour logon for this customer or can it be reserved or prioritized
