Windows 2003 Server Missing CAL’s.

A disk fills, a random reboot, or something else causes SBS 2003 to reset its CALs to 5.

To fix this:

  1. Stop the “License Logging” service.
  2. Copy C:WindowsSystem32licstr.cpa to C:WindowsSystem32licstr.cpa.old
  3. Restore C:WindowsSystem32licstr.cpa from backup
  4. Start the “License Logging” service.

A reboot may be required.
