Licensing Logging Service showing deleted users

Hello,

I have 2 servers set up with Server 2000.  I have 40 Cals and license logging service is turned on.  Between the 2 servers we do not have more than 40 users accessing them combined.  I received an error in the application log that stated I needed to purchase more licenses.  I went to license logging service and found that users that had been deleted from AD were still there.  I followed the steps (see paste below) and this did not work.  

How can I delete permanently the users from the license logging service that have already been deleted from AD?


Jon


I tried this already
--------------------------------------------------------



To reset the License Manager information:


Stop the License Logging service.
Delete or rename the following files on the primary domain controller or the enterprise server:

Cpl.cfg
Llsuser.lls
Llsmap.lls
Restart the License Logging service.
Re-add the appropriate license information

You need to delete the files on all servers that are running LLS, or they will be replicated back; my guess is that it's running on both servers, and you only deleted the information on one of them.

On the other hand, according to this article, you can disable the LLS as well:
