Microsoft Licensing Manager Per Device or Per User Allocation not showing correctly?

We habe Windows 2003 server and we have purchased 248 CAL's.

It is saying that 208 are allocated but we know for a fact there is more then that and I have seen a user logged in and accessing network shares and not showing as an allocated CAL. Why would this be? and How can I get the server to get the correct information?

That's because the License Logging Service is notoriously unreliable; in fact, so much so that Microsoft didn't start in W2k3, didn't include it anymore in W2k8, and says that you can safely disable it in most networks:

You just need enough CALs to cover the EULA. The CALs themselves are not enforced.
