Terminal Services License Server Database Availability

Updated: January 5, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

When the Terminal Services Licensing (TS Licensing) role service is installed, a database is created in which to hold information about the Terminal Services client access licenses (TS CALs) that are installed onto the license server.

The location of the TS Licensing database can specified during the TS Licensing role service installation. The database location must be a local folder on the computer on which the TS Licensing role service is being installed. By default, the TS Licensing database is located in the %systemroot%\system32\lserver folder. You can confirm the location of the TS Licensing database by using Review Configuration in the TS Licensing Manager tool.
