We get this error in event viewer "replication of license information failed because the licensing logging service on server \\server could not be contacted" The \\server listed is a DC but not a licensing server and the licensing service is not even turned on that server. What should I do to fix this? Why would the server giving the error give this message?
Thanks

You may want to verify if the service is running.

Thanks Americom, I dont manage the other server that is getting the error. The DC it is pointing to does not having the licensing on it. I am running Windows 2003 server. Is this error mean the server is looking for the CA server? If so we need to point it to the correct server...correct?

I believe the error is a very common one and quite often we just disabled the services to eliminate the error. If you do a search on this site, you may find many other reported the same message and suggestions are pretty much the same.
