    You can activate the server without CALs, just as license server, so it will work in Terminal Server mode but the clients will only works for 90 days. When you reach that limit delete HKLM\software\microsoft\mslicensing in the client and you'll get another 90 days ;D Also you can make this every time Windows starts (with a script) and the "license" will never expire.

    If you works with non-Windows clients, for example Thinstation, just use a prefix for the TS-Clients names, for example 001-xxxxx, when you reach the 90 day limit change it for 002-xxxxx....

    It's just a trick, but works.

    I guess the country doesnot really influences the activation using a Select License. Other countries also worked.

    See youre PM

    This my first post, hoping to help who need.
    I found in google a registry hack that may help in this case, it have to be run in client pc and block the asking of server license in terminal services.
    I test in 2008 and 2008 r2 and work well.
    If someone interested and not break roles I can post it here.

    PS:Sorry for my bad English... :p

    It works fine and writen in another post you can script the reg key deletion.


    •Reboot then login to the Windows Server 2008 computer using an Administrator account. Click the "Start" or "Globe" button on the PC desktop and then click the "Search" box. Type the "%WINDIR%\system32\lserver" path into the "Search" box. Press the "Enter" key.

    •2
    Locate the "TSLIC.edb" file in the "Lserver" window and right-click on the file the select "Rename" in the drop-down menu. Type "tslic.old" into the tile name field and press the "Enter" key. Reboot the Windows 2008 Server computer.

    •3
    Start one of the Windows Terminal Services client computers that established a Terminal Services connection to the Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services computer during the 120-day trial period. Login to the Windows Terminal Services client computer using the credentials of an account with Administrator permissions. Click the "Start" or "Globe"button on the computer desktop then click "Run" or Search." Type "regedit" in the "Run" or "Search" box and press the "Enter" key.

    •4
    Click the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder in the "Registry Editor" window that appears then click the "SOFTWARE" folder. Click the "Microsoft" folder then click the "MSLicensing" folder. Locate the "CAL TS" keys in the right pane of the "Registry Editor" window. Right-click on every "CAL TS" item one at a time and click "Delete" in the menu that appears. Close the "Registry Editor" then reboot the Windows Terminal Services client computer.

    •5
    Repeat the registry edit procedure for each Windows Terminal Services client computer that established a Terminal Services session with the Windows 2008 Server Terminal Services computer during the 120-day trial period.

    now i need TS-CALS for working, i've tryed a number around like 362547 with other option, next one i click on 2008 and ts per user, entered the number 50 and the server say 's
    your new license is installed now....

    there was an error during my post,
    i just tryed this number again and the server does not activate my license....
    i remind the number i entered before .....

    Enter any license agreement with 7 digits, enter 3647589 -> click on license you want up to 9999 (not more posible during turn)
    Server 2000,2003,2008 + R2 does not matter
    and thats work.
    please give anyone feedback if this work or not?!?
    before you enter install license activate server the server automatic over microsoft.
    Enter Name A, Lastname B, Company AB, and your Land, the second page could be empty.
