you would have the same problem in an AD with a windows 2003 license
server. You need a 2008 license server. At least, this happened to us,
the 2008 TS would not use the 2003 license server and the event log
message was quite clear about why. It's been a while so I no longer
have the details handy, but upgrading to 2008 really means 'upgrade'.
