Hi Pavan,

System users are not counted in SAP licensing and also service/communication users, expired users. You can run transaction USMM and perform test runs to confirm it. You can run this transaction several times until it meets your requirements after changes. Once you are satisfied, the results can be sent to SAP.

Depending on the SAP version you are. As of version 4.6C these system and reference users do not count

Please read notes

Note 553606 - System measurement: Automatic exclusion of users

Note 200980 - System measurement: Service users and reference users

I hope this helps
