Licence user limit exceeded

Licence user limit exceeded

Post by QnJhZ » Sat, 18 Nov 2006 04:51:02

I have a client with an SBS2003 Server (Exchange 2003) and they are receiving
the following notifications occasionally...

To: Joe Smith
Subject: Licensing issue.


The attached message was not delivered to the following recipients due to
licensing issues:

XXXX@XXXXX.COM : Licence user limit exceeded.

They have a 20 user license and have 19 users. Exchange appears to create
some licenses for Administrator, System Attendant, SystemMailbox and SMTP.
Do these count as users?

Also, if my spelling is correct - the 2nd occurance of license is misspelled
in the error.

Any help is appreciated!

Stop and disable the License Logging Service and use some other means to
ensure that you have the correct number of licenses.
