Could not get license information correctly

I am trying to run transactional replication between two SQL 7 Servers.  Both of the servers are within the same domain and are registered within Enterprise Manager.  I can browse the databases of each server using EM.  One server is setup as Distributor and Publisher.  The other is the Subscriber.  When replication runs the publisher snapshot is created fine but when the push to the subscriber is attempted I get:

"Could not get license information correctly."

Both servers are set to use the Administrator account to run the SQL Agent.  What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks,

Matt

Check the Licensing Options on both the servers. This would be under Control Panel/Administrative Options.

I had a similar problem when using DTS. The DTS package requires more than one license. The license was created when the SQL Server was installed.

I looked at both.  One is set for 40 concurrent users, the other for 20.

What version of SQL on each? Enterprise? Developer? Personal? Standard?

I figured out that niether server had a service pack installed.  After installing SP4 on both I was able to get replication working.
