Remote Desktop login causes "Terminal Services Warning"

By bob ·
Hi,I am running Windows 2000 sbs service pack 4 and get the error below. I am not using terminal services but remote desktop stopped working on this server on other machines last month and now it looks like my machine will stop working soon. I am the only admin user that logs into this. Does anyone know what causes this and how to fix it?

Terminal Services Warning
Your terminal services temporary client license will expire in 15 days. Please contact your system administrator to get a permanent license.

See if you server is running in admin or user mode. Not 100% sure about SBS, but 'regular' 2000 servers would only throw that error in user mode.
