When you attempt to use the License Logging service on Windows Server 2003, you may experience any of the following behaviors:

  • The License Logging service cannot find the domain controller.

  • You cannot manage licenses.

When the License Logging service starts, it attempts to find the domain controller. You may receive the following error:

ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

Even if Llssrv.exe is running on a domain controller, you may experience this behavior due to a RPC (Remote Procedure Call) exception.

To workaround this behavior, restart the License Logging service.

NOTE: The License Logging service is NOT scheduled to be included in future versions of Windows.

NOTE: The License Logging service is disabled by default on Windows Server 2003.
