What’s new in Terminal Services Licensing for Longhorn? Part 1

Apr 5

The Terminal Services team at Microsoft have posted the first in a series of blog entries on what's happening with TS Licensing in the Longhorn timeframe.  Many people know that TS user licensing is not tracked in 2003 Server, and every is fully expecting that to change in Longhorn.  However, the startling piece of this article (for me anyway) was this line:

"Note that in Longhorn, per-user licenses are only tracked and not enforced."

I'm not sure if this is in reference only to the beta product, or if it's the plan for the actual product launch.  I'd be very surprised if per user licensing wasn't enforced, though I'd have to say I'd be very happy if that was the case.  Licensing enforcement sucks!
