LicenseService errors after server restore onto new raid array.
Posted on 2006-05-04
I have recently performed a SBS2000 restore onto a new RAID array. The partitions are identical as per the prevous system. I have performed a bare metal restore using Veritas Backup Exec 9.1.
This has been sucessful, however I seem to be getting problem with Licenses now, The event log is full of ID:221, 222 and 201 errors being reported all from the "LicenseService" source.
The impact that this is having is that users are unable to login to exchange server via Outlook. I have looked into the error and it appears that Veritas 8.6 had an issue when releasing licenses during a backup of the mailboxes. Also Windows 2000 has had a licensing problem resolved with the release on SP3.
My server is fully patched and up to date, Veritas 9.1 SBS is also upto date.
Could this be an issue when I restored to a new volume, and the licensing has been screwed up or could this still be to do with Exchange server not releasing licenses?
If I look into the exchange manager I have 33 instances of Username SMTP using NT AUTHORITY\System login account. This is only a 20 user SBS environment.
Any thouhgts on this?
