What are the dependencies of the Small Business Server 2003 Licensing Wizard (sblic.msc)?
Posted on 2007-04-04
I am trying to install the Small Business Server Licensing Wizard on a "clean" Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server Service Pack 2 computer. Now you may be tempted to say it's already installed...but however here is my situation.
We have two Windows SBS 2003 Servers. The first is a standard out of the box installation and is the Domain controller for our network. I am trying to set up a second SBS 2003 server that will only provide IIS, SQL2005 and file sharing services to the network. In my infinite wisdom and unending desire to save on cost and create headaches for myself I chose Windows SBS 2003. Now I have done the SBS 2003 installation and stopped it at the point that it wants to convert the installation to a domain controller. I then patched up the operating system to the latest Microsoft service packs and then installed IIS 6 and SQL 2005. It was then joined to our domain and everything was just fine until I attempted to install our 20 additional CALs.
At first I tried to access the License administration tool which told me to use the Small Business Server Add License Wizard. Ok no problem so I find it in our other server sblic.msc and I copy it to the new server. Now I get MMC cannot create the snap in.
Does anybody know what the dependencies of the sblic.msc are and/or has experience in trying to install licensing CALs to a SBS server without the SBS licensing wizard?
