Hi all.
We have Microsoft sbs 2003 server with standard 5 CAL licenses.

We bought 10 extra licenses to have a totally of 15.

But now the 10 extra licenses are disappeared.
We cant find the license paper we used to activate it for 4 years ago.
its NOT Volume licenses.

Is there any way to get the licenses back on the server?

there's a backup copy of your licenses in Windows folders. Have a go at importing c:\windows\system32\licstr.cpa  or autolicstr.cpa via the Restore License in SBS server management. The autolicstr.cpa is created when you add or remove a license so, may be missing a license. The licstr.cpa should be the licenses.

If neither contain the missing CALS, look for an old backup ....
