Confused about Exchange 2003 licensing
I have a Win 2003 server running Exchange 2003 and I have 15 users. This was setup by my predecessor, and now I am responsible for it. I can’t find out what he bought in the way of licensing, and he is not reachable to call. My boss wants me to add 35 users ASAP.
1 – Where do I go to purchase the licenses?
2 - How much will they cost each, roughly?
3 – How long will they take to arrive?
4 - What would happen if I added them right away, before the licenses arrived in the mail? Is there a grace period of 120 days when those accts will be allowed?
5 – We are in the MS developers program, and get some amount of licenses as part of this. Any idea how many or how this fits into the picture.
I think this server was originally an exchange 2000 server with the same 15 users, but I am not sure.
I found many links to web pages about MS licensing, but I am still confused. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
