One of our clients is receiving this message in their Event Logs even though they have enough client access licenses and the Licensing component shows all of them listed.  Is it possible to reset the Licensing database or perform some other task to force the Licensing Service to reset the count to get rid of the message being logged in the Event Viewer?  Event Log message below:

Event Type:      Error

The product Windows Server is out of licenses.  Use Licensing from the Administrative Tools folder for more information on which users are out of compliance and how many licenses should be purchased.

Is there more than one server on the network?

And how many CALs show up in Licensing in the Server Management Console?  Are there less than you have actually purchased?  If so, then it's your virus scanning program that needs to not scan the licensing files.  

Restore or reenter the CAL codes and then exclude these from scanning:

C:\Windows\System32\licstr.cpa
C:\Windows\System32\lls
