Windows 2003sbs OEM CALS

I have installed Windows 2003sbs with the included 5 cals in user mode. I have an additional 10 CALS I would like to add. The problem is they are OEM cals. There is no 25 digit ID to enter on any of included info, only a Microsoft Tracking ID. They are not pirated (I purchased them from my distributor). How do I add these CALS?

Are you sure that these OEM CALs are for 2003SBS? First, I'd ask your distributor. If they aren't any help, then the best bet is to ring Microsoft direct and ask them to provide guidance - They are actually quite helpful with this.

You are correct, the cals were for 2003 server not SBS. SBS requires the 25 digit key and 2003 does not. I had called Microsoft already and they were no help. I asked my distributor and they confirmed they sent me the wrong cals. Thanks, you deserve the points.
