Description: Tracks Client Access License usage for server products, such as Internet Information Server (IIS), Terminal Services, File and Print services, as well as other products such as SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server.
The License Logging service for Windows Server 2003 operating systems collects site-licensing information on the site license server for a single site. This enables a geographical or organizational unit in an organization to purchase and manage their software licenses separately. However, because each site allocates licenses to users independently of other sites, a user connecting to a product in more than one site might be allocated more than one Client Access License for the same product.
If stopped or disabled, licensing logging for these programs will not be logged.
