    I have inherited a SBS 2003 and need to find out if the 20 CALS are per user
    or per device. Where do I find this information on the server? Please help
    this is a critical situation.

    Thank you,

    It won't be found on the server. The person who installed them should have
    made a written record for the original 5 included with SBS. The other 15
    should show the type on the licensing document or check the SKU that was
    ordered. Why is it critical since there is some leeway in how the licensing
    usage is tracked?

    I need the CAL'S to be be device only due to the number of users. I only have
    20 CAL's and more users than that, but only have 17 devices.

    Do those users access the server remotely for VPN, RWW, OWA and/or Outlook
    using RPC/HTTP? If so they will still require a license. Usually user
    licenses are preferable to device licenses.

    Like Steve said, it's on the Documentation when you purchaced the license.

    No remote access is allowed in this environment when I started this job. I am
    in the process of setting up Exchange Email with OWA, but currently they use
    3rd party Email with web access.
