Replication of license information failed because the License Logging Service....

I keep getting this message in our event log:

"Replication of license information failed because the License Logging Service on server (our old decomissioned server) could not be contacted."


This is a SBS 2003 server so I can't get into the licensing application in control panel.  The SBS license manager has no option to change or disable replication.  I do not need to replicate my licenses to any other servers.  According to the Microsoft KB article, I should not disable the LLS.  How can I eliminate this error message on this server?


Thanks

I'm not familiar with SBS, but we disable LLS globally via GPO with no issues.

dssite.msc, go to the site with the problem (sbs usually has 1 site, might have more as well, depends on the way its set)
On the right hand window right click
on Licensing Site Settings, go to properties.  On the Licensing Settings tab, under
Licensing Computer, click the change button and select the name of the new
licensing server.

if the old server was an ADC, and has been decomissioned or would no longer be introduced in the domain with the same name then do a metadata cleanup.
check for an additional Dc's in ADUC or ADsites.

I was able to remove the old server from the AD site and ran a metadata cleanup to clean up the AD.
