    Hi all,

    I'm planning to migrate my Win NT 4 server to Win 2003
    server. Currently I've 20 CAL for NT 4 so my question is
    this 20 CAL still valid in Win 2003 server or I need to
    purchase the new CAL??

    Thanks.

  2. No, you get to purchase 20 new CALs.

    Ultraman76,

    We recently came across this issue ourselves while migrating a client,
    Ms told us if the users would still be connecting to the old NT Server
    than they are valid for that server. If the clients would be connecting
    to a new Windows 2003 Server, than they would have to purchase
    Windows 2003 CAL licenses, most Win 2003 Server STD purchases come
    with 5 CALs already.

    Cheers,

  5. You need 2003 CALs for the 2003 box. The NT ones are only good for the NT
    box.
