PLEASE HELP!! How to clear NT licenses

By carljohnman ·
We have one PDC and one BDC and although we revoke the terminated employees to free up licenses they continue to reappear and cause problems for new users. Can anyone please walk me thru the steps to permenately delete old user accounts so they never appear again or hold up licenses much needed.

Thank you for help in advance,
Carl

I realize this is not the way MS recommends, but most people just stop License Logging Service :-)
So do I.

HTH,

Stopping the License logging is an option, but... you can also remove the current information it's holding. Take the next steps to do this :

Start the services control panel applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel - Services) , Select the "License Logging Service" and click stop

Start Explorer (Run - Explorer)

Move to the %systemroot%/system32 directory (e.g. d:\winnt\system32)
Delete Cpl.cfg which holds the purchase history

Move to the Lls sub-directory of system32, and deletethe file llsuser.lls and llsmap.lls if they exist

Back in Services Control Panel applet, select "License Logging Service" and click Start

You can now re-enter the license information.
