Windows Server 2000 Licensing

Hi

I have Windows 2000 Server using per server licensing (I think). I am trying to add a further 10 CALs and have proceeded as follows:-

Start-Programs -admin tools-licensing. Click License-New License. Click down drop down box, Select Windows Server, Then add a quantity of 10 and click OK but the Licensing Window freezes at this point. The Task Manager indicates that the licensing application is not responding. I'm lost as to what the problem is. Anyone and ideas? Thanks

Hi Jay_Jay70

I'm tried to use Safe mode but I don't think I't allows me to run the License Manager
in Safe Mode.

There is no entry created in the event log when the attempt to add licences becomes
non-responsive but I do get the following application event message periodically
"License usage for product SMB server 5.0 is nearing the maximum of per
server licenses purchased. Consult license manager from the administrative tools
folder for more information"

I'll try sfc /scannow and see if it helps

Thanks Jay_Jay70

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

No they all work fine insofar I would use them. I have tried sfc /scannow but it goes through fine without reporting any errors. Thanks Again

Make sure you are adding the licences to the correct domain controller.
