I have a SBS2003 network that is consistently having licensing issues. We have 20 licenses and the system keeps resetting to 5 licenses. I have followed the instructions provided in another question for restoring the license (licstr.cps) and I have written a script that performs those tasks when needed. I have double checked the Anti-Virus (Sophos) and made an exclusion on the system32 folder.
Are there any other thoughts/insights on what may be causing the licensing to be reset?
(Here’s the error message)
Error Msg:License usage for product Windows Server is nearing the maximum number of per server licenses purchased. Consult Licensing from the Administrative Tools folder for more information.
