We're using Small Business Server 2000. I know how to find out the number of licenses that we have by going to the Server Management Console, but I don't know how to find out the number of licenses that we are currently using, out of the number of licenses that we bought. We just bought three new desktops and are waiting for them to get here any day now. But I want to have the licenses available before they're here.

Start>programs>administrative tools>licensing>
The tab you want to select is products view, this will display the per seat/server purchased and per seat/server allocated.

I have Small Business Server 2000, not Windows Server 2000. That option is disabled by default. Thanks for your help.

Sorry,

Adding or changing client licenses can only be done from the Small Business Server 2000 Administrator Console. The Windows 2000 Server license manager is disabled in Small Business Server 2000. If you attempt to start the license manager from the Control Panel, a message appears, which instructs you to use the Small Business Server Administrator Console.

Click Start, and then click Small Business Server Administrator Console.

1. Click Start, and then click Small Business Server Administrator Console.
2. Click Server Status (BackOffice Home) in the snap-in.
3. In the right side of the console under Helpful Links, click the About link. The dialog box that appears shows the number of licenses on the server.

How do I check how many licenses I'm currently using? I know I have 15 licenses, but I don't know how many of these I'm using.
