    I have a server on Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition. The following Event Id
    is generating regularly.

    Event ID:-1008,



    Description:- The terminal server licensing grace period has expired and the
    service has not registered with a license server with installed licenses. A
    terminal server license server is required for continuous operation. A
    terminal server can operate without a license server for 120 days after
    initial start up.

    After this event all users are not able to access data on the server. To
    access the data we have to reboot the server. This Event generate once in 12

    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    configured (For example, instead of Licensing mode =per user is set to

    I hope that the information above helps you
