Hi There, I hav recently taken over a site running sbs2003. One night they lost there licensing information from Server Management. Is there any way i can get that licensing information back or find out what it was. Normally i take a backup of the licensing information but in this case they are new clients. Does anyone know of a way i can find out what the licensing information was.

Find out who the licenses were sent/sold to - ifi they are MOLP licenses, you can get the keys by signing in to the MOLP Web site with the appropriate MS Passport account.  (This happened to me once before, that's how I did it).

Otherwise, call Microsoft - they should be able to help you.

This generally happens because your Anti-Virus software is scanning the Licensing folder.  Some AV programs will unregister the dll responsible.  All you have to do is reregister the dll and then exclude it from being scanned.
