Ereignis-ID: 501 Quelle: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

Witzig, wir hatten vor einiger Zeit auch gerade über die folgende Meldung im Dashboard von Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2011 Standard gesprochen:

Log Name: Microsoft-Windows-Small Business Server/Operational
Source: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard
Event ID: 501
Description:
Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard allows a maximum of 75 user accounts and computers. If you have more than this, use the Windows SBS Console to remove some computers or user accounts.

Once you start to get this error you’ll get it once a day until the issue is resolved. The problem is that SBS is detecting that your active directory contains more than 75 objects in a category. So it’s time to clean up your AD.

Die Microsoft-Volumenlizenzierung Produktbenutzungsrechte (PUR) sagen “Sie dürfen höchstens insgesamt 75 CALs jeglicher Arten zuweisen, um den Zugriff auf die lizenzierten Instanzen der Serversoftware zu gestatten.” (“You may use any combination of user or device CALs up to a maximum of 75 CALs.”).

Zu der o. g. Fehlermeldung sagen die SBS 2011 Licensing FAQ:

Q: Why am I getting an SBS Console alert for "The number of user accounts and computers in the domain might exceed the maximum allowed” and an Event ID 501 stating that "Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard allows a maximum of 75 user accounts and computers"?
A: There is a nightly health check where the number of computers and users that exist in Active Directory is counted. When an unusually high number of either is detected, the alert is raised. This alert does not automatically mean you are in violation of the licensing. It is designed to call attention and help the administrator review the current situation in case action needs to be taken. The threshold is 80, if either is higher than that the alert will trigger. If this is an expected count and the proper amount of licenses have been purchased, then the alert can be disabled from within the console. Navigate to the Network tab, Computers, View Notification Settings, Event Log Errors, and uncheck "The number of user accounts and
computers in the domain might exceed the maximum allowed.”

Amy von ThirdTier hat jetzt einen Artikel geschrieben, wie man sein AD bereinigen kann, auf den ich ob unserer eigenen Diskussion verweisen möchte.

Zitat: “[….] SBS is detecting that your active directory contains more than 75 objects in a category[….] Move all service accounts and templates into the Manage Service Account container. [….] This exempts them from licensing.”
