SYMPTOMS
When you connect to your Microsoft Windows 2000 Server-based server through a null session, you may be able to use the Llsrpc named pipe to add or to delete licenses, and to create new license groups.
CAUSE
This problem occurs because the Llsrpc named pipe is located under the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\NullSession
. As a result, any null session can access the Llsrpc named pipe.

NullSessionPipes
key under the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
Service Pack 4 replaces the existing data in the
NullSessionPipes
key with the following registry data:
COMNAP COMNODE SQL\QUERY SPOOLSS EPMAPPER LOCATOR TrkWks TrkSvr
STATUS
