    I'm runing through a scenario in my virtual lab, below are some details:

    My objective was to split the tasks of an over worked very old W2K server to 3 new servers and then add in a terminal server

    Old Server W2k
    -DC
    -DNS
    -DHCP
    -WINS
    -F&P Sharing
    -RRAS
    -MS SQL

    New Server 1 2003
    Primary Role - DC

    New Server 2 2003
    Primary Role - F&P Sharing

    New Server 3 2003
    Primary Role - MS SQL

    New Server 4 2003
    Primary Role - Terminal Server

    after performing all of this i had a :sleeping the next day after a little :hhhmmm I realised that i had forgot to switch the licence modes from per server to per seat(user/device), so i fired up all the vm's and changed it over, all went well apart from the terminal server everytime i try to change it I get this error

    {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful

    when i check the event logs there nothing relating to this error, is this becuase its a TS?

    Thanks in advance

    Could be mate, have you configured TS licensing?

    Weird, thought the domain admins group was part of the local admins group on the terminal server.
