SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You start TS Licensing Manager (Licmgr.exe) on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008. Or, you start Remote Desktop License Manager (Licmgr.exe) on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You try to install a volume license for one of the following licenses:
    • Select License
    • Enterprise Agreement
    • Campus Agreement
    • School Agreement
    • Service Provider License Agreement
    • Other Agreement
In this scenario, you cannot enter an agreement number that is more than seven digits.

Note The issue also occurs if you install terminal licenses by the commands that are provided by Windows Management Instrument (WMI) or by Windows PowerShell.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because Remote Desktop Licensing Manager, Terminal Services Licensing Manager, WMI, and Windows PowerShell incorrectly restrict the agreement numbers for volume licenses to only seven digits.

RESOLUTION

This hotfix also removes the check on authorization numbers and license numbers for open licenses.
