I have talked with a few people on this and have gotten the same answer from
2 different MS people. If anyone from Microsoft reads this and has a better
fix, let me know.
Disable the License Logging Service.
I know that this kills all license logging, but I have been told that there
is still a bug that will not release a license after it has been issued.
User A logs onto his machine (Machine A) and opens Outlook to connect to
User gets NT license and Exchange License
User A logs out and goes to a friends machine and logs in. He also checks
his mail in Outlook
User gets another NT license and Exchange License for his use on another
Old license is still there.
Also, every time you log onto someone's machine you take a license. The
only option is to wade through it all on a regular basis, or disable the
darn thing as it is mostly a waste of time.
