Hi folks, Jonathan here. Dave and I wanted to share some important information with you.

By now you’ve all been made aware of the Microsoft Security Advisory that was published this past Sunday.  If you are a Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Services administrator then we have some information of which you should be aware.  These are just some extra administrative steps you’ll need to follow the next time you have to obtain license key packs, transfer license key packs, or any other task that requires your Windows Server license information to be processed by the Microsoft Product Activation Clearinghouse.  Since there’s a high probability that you’ll have to do that at some point in the future we’re doing our part to help spread the word.  Our colleagues over at the Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services) Team blog have posted all the pertinent information. Take a look.

Follow-up to Microsoft Security Advisory 2718704: Why and How to Reactivate License Servers in Terminal Services and Remote Desktop Services

If you have any questions, feel free to post them over in the Remote Desktop Services forum.
