Exchange front-end licensing

Hi,
Yesterday, when accessing OWA as a non-admin I would get an error that there are no more IIS licenses. The server is configured as per server with 45 connections. I doubt that there were 45 people logged in. I thought there are unlimited connections through IIS. Is there a chance that the server wasn't releasing the connections? How could i see who's logged in through OWA?

Thank you,
T

Turn off the license logging service. It is a heap of junk that just gets in the way. As you are using a frontend this isn't SBS, so there is no concern with that.

Oh, the number of concurrent connections does't apply to OWA?

If you turn it off, then you will not get any of these types of error messages.
Stop the service, then change it to disabled.

As long as the server isn't SBS, then you are fine.

On non-SBS domains I actually set the disabled service through Group Policy, so that it doesn't get in the way. It does nothing for your licensing - in the event of an audit you would have to produce proof of the licenses.
