LicenseService reports out of license error
Posted on 1999-01-05
Our NT server has been reporting the following error in the event log:
"The product Windows NT Server is out of licenses. Use License Manager from the Administrative Tools folder for more information on which users are out of compliance and how many licenses should be purchased."
Our problem is that even though we have previously deleted the licenses of all expired users (that is, staff who have left this organisation's employ)in License Manager, these users keep being re-created and consequently the system believes we have more users than licenses. These old users no longer have NT accounts (that is, they do not appear in User Manager for Domains).
