#127 Solaris Terminal Services License Storage

Alan West

I am running rdesktop on Solaris, connecting to a Win2k
TS. Everything worked fine until my temporary licenses
expired. I have since purchased plenty of licenses, but
every Solaris station that connected prior to the
purchase of MS licenses can no longer connect.
Stations connecting for the first time are successful and
get issued a license (at least as far as I can tell).

According to M$, the TS license (both temporary and
permanent) gets stored in the registry for Windows OS.
However, I can't seem to find where that license is
stored on my Solaris stations.

Does anybody know where I can find this license, so I
can delete it and hopefully make my station acquire a
new permanent license?

    I think on your license server you need to find the solaris
    stations and kill them there. Then when you have that done
    it will allow them to get a new CAL.

    Just a thought.

    Also, I think you can just specify some random hostname with
    the "-n" option and it will fool the TS into giving you a
    new license.
