Licensing Error Messages Windows 2003 Server Part 2
Posted on 2004-04-14
Being that we cannot add the Windows SBS 2003 Standard Edition Server to our Windows 2000 Domain, we are under the assuption that we have to make the SBS 2003 Server the new Domain Controller.
Here's the question we have:
We run our Exchange Service off of our Domain Controller because we are small office, and have a low budget. If we DCPROMO the SBS 2003 Server, what happens to the original domain, email accounts, network connections for users, Active Directory Accounts, and the rest of the network?
Does everything just magically flow over to the AD of SBS 2003 Server?
We have only 5 CALs for SBS 2003 Server, and we will only have 2 or 3 people ever accessing the server, but do we now need to buy a CAL for each user on the network?
