lost in licensing...
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a windows 2000 server with 15 CAL in per server licensing mode. (and I'm needing more five)
For some strange reason:
I have just received 2 fresh new windows 2003 servers with 5 CAL each.
I want to use one of the new servers (not SCSI) as file and mail server and keep the 2000 (SCSI) with databases, but I'm lost in licensing...
I can understand per server licensing but that would mean more 5 CAL for 2000 server and more 15 for 2003 server.
The question is:
Can I use the per seat licensing mode for 20 users without spending a penny? and how? (because I don't know much about this)
Open to any sugestion,
