I've got a sbs server 2003 that we've deployed in a clients office.  The server was ordered with only 15 licenses and by mistake 20 were entered.

(5 standard and 3 five packs.)

 I need to remove one five pack of licenses (cals, per server) from the 2003 sbs server leaving them with 15 licenses. If anyone has any information, it would be very appreciated.

Sorry but there is no supported way to remove the extra 5 pack or to revoke the registration.  Even if you rebuild the server the 5pack is registred at MS for that machine and company.

I had a client do something very close to the same thing and call Microsoft after looking around and that is the answer I recived.
