Can anyone tell me how I find out how many licenses I currently have on a Windows 2000 SBS server.
License manager tells me to look in the admin console and in the admin console, I only seem to be able to find the option to add licenses, not see how many licenses I currently have.

Thanks,
Phil.

Tried that, doesnt seem to tell me there - All I have is "ABout" which brings uo an about window with no CAL info on it, and the standard "Help" option, which I have already tried searching for my answer.

Although the 'tips' link no longer works, see:
http://www.microsoft.com/sbserver/community/sbs_faq.asp

Search for "How do I determine the number of CALs installed on my SBS 2000 server"
>>>
From the Administrators Console, click Help. If you still can't find the number of CALs installed, take a look at http://www.sbs2000.info/tips_tricks.htm for an example of where to find this information.

SBS 2000 doesn't use the standard Windows 2000 licensing resource. SBS 2000 licenses must be added using an SBS CAL license floppy disk. For more information about SBS licensing, see:
