I setup SBS2003 a year ago with 5 Users Cals that came with the system and added 20 more User Cal.
Now, all of a sudden I only see 5 user Cals.
Where did the other 20 go?
Is this an issue with SBS2003?
Thanks for your help

The 20 was added at the time the server was setup, over a year ago, and everything has worked fine until now. We started getting error about not enough licenses.
I have now re added the 20 licenses, but why did they disappear?

Well they shouldn't. If you have added multiple computers, taken them down, added others, it might think you have more than 20 when you really don't.

We had something like that happen before, added our license back on and no problems since.
