Client licensing and adding a Win 2k server to existing NT 4 Domain
Posted on 2002-07-08
I will be adding a new Win 2000 server to our existing NT 4 domain consisting of 3 - NT 4 servers using per server licensing. I am thinking that I will change over to per seat but before I do I want to make sure I understand how this will work when I add the 2000 server to the domain. I plan on adding it to the domain as a backup domain controller and then promoting it to PDC. Should I change over to per seat before I attempt this or after? I guess I'm just unsure how to get the CAL's to transfer over. My main reason behind all this is to try to save some cash by not having to purchase a new CAL for everyone who will need to access this server (about 30 people). Please advise.
