We have a Windows 2008 R2 license server. I have previously added Win 2008 TS/RDP User CALs to this server, purchased from our MS Enterprise Agreement. However, we've just purchased another 30, but can't seem to add them. The numbers provided in the license email, contain 8 numbers, but the TS license screen will only accept 7. So details we have (changed to protect actual license):
Agreement Number:                  50123456
Master Agreement Number:      E0654321
Business Agreement Number:      U5678901
License Agreement Type:            Corporate
Program:                              Enterprise 6

If I remove the leading characters (5, E or U) from any of the numbers, or select all the different license programs (select, open, enterprise etc) and try, I get the error:

The licensing agreement data provided to Microsoft is not valid. Check all the information you provided, make any necessary corrections, and then resubmit your request. If the problem persists, try using a different connection method.

We've spent 4hrs on the phone with Microsoft on this, and they were no help. Despite the licenses being issued by them (through Dell as a reseller), and us having server support, they couldn't help with the issue! I'm hoping someone here might be able to explain what the problem is!
