I don't think you can issue a "temporary" CAL. As far as I know once a Terminal Services CAL has been issued it is on the machine that took the license for good. You may want to double-check with someone else, but I think that's the way it works.

There was a hotfix for this issue. i.e. TS CALs were not being released when the terminal logged off.
See the knowledgebase article q287687 which details a fix. I notice that it only applies to licences that are issued after this fix is applied, so you may need to contact your Microsoft office to get them to resolve the licences that are already issued but not needed.

There are no "temp" cals for TS 2000. There is a Patch that Q287687 that is suppose to 'return' a license that hasn't been accessed in a period of time ( I think 30days) without this patch the license is permanently assigned to the workstation. If licenses have been issued before this patch has been applied they will not 'expire'. Your only choice then is to remove and reinstall TS then apply patch and readd license pack.

As far as I'm aware the TSCALs should be recovered by the licencing server after 90 days provided that the client has not used TS in the last 90 days and provided that the TSCAL was issued after SP2 was installed.
