    Hi - does anyone know how to check the SQL Server licence mode (for all versions) e.g. per seat or processor?
    Can this be easily located in the Registry?

    The result is 'DISABLED' - What does this mean?

    LicenseTypeMode of this instance of SQL Server.
    PER_SEAT = Per-seat mode
    PER_PROCESSOR = Per-processor mode
    DISABLED = Licensing is disabled.
    Base data type: nvarchar(128)

    I am also looking for the same, but that forum mentioned by you does not work for me. Does it work for any one?

    Hi Satya,
    I have a mixed environment of SQL server, in which I have few SQL Server 2000 server and few SQL Server 2005 Servers. For auditing purpose we need to track the licensing information. In SQL server 2000, I am able to get information quite easily through Control panel, but there is no way to get same kind of information for SQL Server 2005. As someone mentioned the link for configure registry setting for SQL server 2005
    http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlblog/archive/2006/11/10/tracking-license-information-in-sql-2005.aspx . I have already tried it but it did not work for me.
    Any help on it is really appreciated.
    Thanks a lot in advance.
