Hello, my name is Chris, and I'm a new Bleeping Computer member. I have an issue with my Windows 2003 SBS server that I hope someone can help with.
When I arrived here, the server did not appear to have finsihed setup (a "Continue Setup" icon was on the desktop, and "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server" is missing). Since many users and computers were already in the domain and working fine, I decided to ignore it.
Now, however, I am now seeing Events 221 ("License usage for product Windows Server is nearing the maximum number of per server licenses purchased") and occasionally 222 ("License usage for product Windows Server is at the maximum number of per server licenses purchased") in the System Event Viewer. However, I still have not seen issues with users unable to login. The event log told me to go into Licensing, which in turn tells me to go to the Add License Wizard. I cannot find the Add License Wizard, or Server Managment for that matter. Therefore, I assume I have to run the Continue Setup to finish installation so that component can be used.
My question: will completing an unfinsihed Windows Server 2003 SBS installation force me to have all computers disjoin and rejoin the domain? Will I have to recreate user accounts? I don't want to open up a can of worms to solve an issue that so far has not caused any problems that I am aware of.
For additional information, we also have a Windows 2000 Server as a domain controller (hopefully to be retired soon) and a Windows 2008 SBS Server that does not act as a domain controller. The rest of the computers are Windows 7 and a few XP.
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!
