It's urgent, we're in a middle of an installation, and the server keeps `yelling` that there are not lic's at all.

Here's a screenshot.

Many thx

Hi,

It doesn't look like you have any per device or per user CALs installed. The unlimited Windows 2000 built-in ones are default. The first time a user connects it is being issued a temporary license to authenticate, (which is why you have Issued=1 on the temp line) on second connection it will then look to assign a permanent license from the pool. As your pool is empty it is triggering an unlicensed server error.

Have you installed the CALs yet? If not, the error is only temporary and will go away once you've installed CALs.

You can test this by deleting the key HKLM\Microsoft\software\MSlicensing\store\License00x\ on a PC. This should make the error go away once only, as it is erasing the temporary license and acquiring a new one.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
