Adding Licenses in SCE 2010


  • Hi

    I have have brought additional licenses for our SCE 2010 and there is no where to actually add them.  This means that when trying to add additional servers it says license limit reached.

    If I go into Adminstration I can see how many licenses are installed but if it only gives me the link to buy additional licenses.  Where is this done.

    Last time when I went for the trial version to a purchased version I had to use the install CD and bascially install it again.

    Surely it can't be that hard to install new CALs.

  • Hi,

    As the query is about licensing, you can call 1-800-426-9400 (select option 4), Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. (PST) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. You can also visit Microsoft Volume Licensing Site to find the contact information.

    Regarding System Center Essentials 2010 Licensing, I would like to share the following document with you for your reference:

    Hope this helps.
