Terminal server licenses

By gabe.poss ·
I am in charge of reloading a Windows server 2003 which originally had 5 terminal server licenses. The computer was infected with a virus so it's inaccessible. I do not have any kind of documentation about the TS licenses. Does anyone know what I need to re-activate them? Thanks!

how inaccessible?

can you take the server off the network so it doesn't infect anything else and view the licenses? Maybe try to use MagicalJellyBean, its supposed to work for SBS2003 but I'm not sure about the licenses

"The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware open source utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install Windows from your registry. It allows you to print or save your keys for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, Server 2003,"

But he doesn't need the OS keys, he needs the terminal server keys. Best bet is to contact Microsoft to hopefully find what you need.

Very inaccessible

The hard drive would not boot, it actually was already formatted. I do have the Windows license, I'm just worried about the TS licenses.

Hopefully it was purchased with a volume license agreement. If not you are out of luck and will need to purchase more TS licenses. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. that is why it is SO important to have multiple copies of the keys and license agreements so that you can prevent this from happening.
