    The answer to this might be a call to MS licensing........

    I have a 2k server that has recently been wiped and reinstalled from scratch.

    I deactivated the Terminal Server licensing ok and then reactivated it ok.

    The problem I am having is with the clients. W98 clients are only getting a 90 day temporary license.

    This would lead me to believe that the license isn't activated but when I try to activate it, Microsoft says that it has already been activated. Do I need to call them and have them "reset" the client licenses somehow?

    On the server is there a way to delete the entry for that client?

    On the client I tried deleting the registry entry under MSlicensing but still no luck.

    TIA -

    I ended up calling MS. They reactivated the licenses. Once the license has been activated it doesn't automatically reset with Microsoft. They have to manually reset.
