    I have 40 CAL's for Windows 2003 and am wondering if they will work for SBS
    2003 or do I have to buy more CAL's specifically for SBS?

    Hi Mark

    CALS for SBS are specific as it is not just accessing server, the SBS cal
    covers exchange among other things too.

    Sorry, have to buy additional. Depending on these CALS, could go upgrade but
    depends how you purchased licenses and software.

    Well I am trying to do several things. First the domain controller (win 2K)
    is running on an old PIII 650Mhz server and is needing updated hardware.
    In addition we have Exchange 2000 and have had it for years and plan on
    upgrading to Exchange 2003 soon. I also have SQL 2000 with an unlimited CAL
    license to support our ERP enterprise application.

    Now I have a copy of SBS 2003 Premiun edition (W/10 CAL's) and CRM 3.0 Small
    Business Edition from the Action Pack. The management wants CRM installed.
    So I am thinking about migrating our old PDC to SBS premium edition to
    replace the PDC hardware and software. In doing so I will have to buy more
    CALS for SBS.
    I still don't think I want to do this but I haven't decided yet. I am
    reading a document now called Migrating from SBS 2000 or Windows 2000 server
    to Windows SBS server 2003. Everything is running too good now to think
    about this mass move!

    I am unsure how this will effect my webserver (windows 2003 Web Edition) and
    I don't think I want to have Exchange or SQL on my PDC. Too many things for
    a PDC that can get munged up.

    Thanks again.
