License Logging (System Services for the Windows Server 2003 Family and Windows XP Operating Systems)

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Service Name: LicenseService

Executable Name: llssrv.exe

Log On As: NetworkService

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.

Available on: Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition; Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition; Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition and Windows Server 2003, Web Edition.
