In Websense WebSecurity, restarting the EIMServer resets the license. Maybe if you restart the appliance license count resets.

Restarting the websense server may work but you may be breaching your licence agreement by doing this.

There are cases when you may run into problems as this link explains when using DHCP

A possible solution is to get Websense technical support to change the timout period for the number of licences but by default the reset counter is done every 24 hours at Midnight.

Also websenseping utility will give you the number of licences that are currently in use. It is advisable to do this towards the end of the day and perhaps more than once on different days to get an idea how many licences on average gets used per day.
