Terminal Server Running On Trial Mode

This alert condition indicates that the Terminal Server is running in Trial Mode and the grace period is about to expire. In Terminal Server environments, you must have account for both OS licenses and application licenses. Licensing is no different from non-Terminal Server environments, except that Windows Server 2003 has technical components that force you to comply with your licenses. If you decide to ignore this condition, you will most likely revisit licensing in 120 days when your Terminal Servers stop functioning because they weren’t properly licensed. Terminal Servers running on Windows 2000 were the first to use Microsoft’s new licensing enforcement technology, and Windows 2003 builds on that.
