    I would like to know what how may users are supported in
    SBS 2003? I have SBS 2K CAL would I need to get upgrade
    CAL for it?
    In the Technet Seminar in Vancouver, Presentor mentioned
    that Exchange Standard now let us have 2 databases
    totalling the space to 32 GB. Would SBS 2003 will allow
    32 GB of database for Exchange?
    Thanks

    1. 75 Users are supported.
    2. You would need to buy new Cal's to work with SBS 2003.
    3. SBS 2003 still has the 16 Gig Database Limit (I was sure that this was a limit of Exchange 2003 Standard as well, did you get any documentation that you could post for us
    about the 2 databases for Exchange 2003?)

    It says 2 database are available of 16 GB max limit. Can
    you tell me how can you create additional database in
    Exchange.
    Thanks

    I took a look at the presentation. Exchange Standard is the version that SBS 2003 uses. I saw the slide that you could have 2 databases in one storage group. This is
    correct, but one is for the mailbox store, and one is for the public folder store with each store limited to 16GB.

    Typically you would add a storage group by right clicking your server in Exchange System Manager (ESM), and selecting new storage group.

    SBS will let you create this group, but once the group is created and you try to create a new mailbox store (by right clicking on the storage group and selecting new
    mailbox store) you will receive an error that "This storage group already contains the maximum number of stores allowed."

    You will also receive this error if you try to create a new mailbox store on the existing First Storage Group.

    You can however create new public folder stores both in the new storage group, and the existing storage group as long as you create a new Public Folder Tree first to
    associate the new store.
