Replication of license information failed because the license logging service could not be contacted

Hi

We have a Windows 2000 server running SQL 2000. There are several tasks that are set to run at specific times, however they are now failing.

Looking in the event log, there is the following message around the time of the failure -

Event ID: 213
Replication of license information failed because the License Logging Service on <domain controller> could not be contacted

As standard, this service is disabled on all our DC's.

Does anyone know what this service does, why the server was trying to contact it and how we can suppress these messages? Is the failure to contact the service likely to cause an issue?

Yes, that can lead to issues. The license logging service has to be disabled on *all* servers, not only on the DC(s).

Thanks..

So there is no need to have this service running on the affected Windows 2000 server?

Nope; as described in the article, the LLS is only required on an SBS, where licensing is enforced.
