How to remove orphaned licensed clients?

Hi all,

Running license server with trial license.
I had to delete a machine catalog (XenDesktop MCS) for the server crashed.
Now the VM’s reside in the licensed clients list. For they were running on the crashed server.
Had to reinstall the server, so the VM’s cannot sign out any more.

In this case I have 120 trial seats, so no problem.
But what if I have, in production, have exact the number of licenses as I have VM’s?
And I have to rebuild this number of VM’s. There will be no licenses left.

Is there a way to kill licenses machines? Reset the count?


I have the same issue. The licensing software is really poor. Not fit for enterprise yet.
