Licensing Server Issues
Posted on 2011-02-28
I recently demoted our file server from being an Active Directory controller. I now have 2 other servers that are redundant AD servers. I have moved all the FSMO roles to one of them and it's mostly working fine. However there now appears to be a problem with the server licensing. Although I've set up the PDC Emulator correclty, the file server still seems to think licensing is coming from somewhere else. Users keep getting booted off because there aren't enough licenses. Apparently the licensing system on Windows Server 2003 doesn't work very well. Does anyone have any info on how I can just reset the entire licensing scheme and ensure that all licensing is managed exclusively by the PDC Emulator?
