I've googled till my little google button fell off of my keyboard, here's what I'm looking for. We need a solution that will shoot off an email when the number of terminal server licenses that we have falls below 90%. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

I had a feeling you could set Nagios to do this kind of thing. There's some code over on under "check terminal services licensing".

Whatever system monitoring suite you've got, it should do this - if not it's not good enough ;) – Oskar Duveborn Oct 19 '09 at 14:30

I don't believe that this information is easily available in a way that would allow this to happen under windows 2003.

I know you that TS license information is available via WMI on Windows 2008, but that probably won't help.
