Hi,

Probably an easy one - how do I find out how many licenses are installed on a Windows 2000 server - I gather it maybe through the Manage Server snap-in but am not sure where to find that either.

Thanks in advance.

Oh right SBS has it in a different place - if I remember correctly you have to go into your server manager tool and look at licensing there.

You should find this at

Start->Administrative Tools->Manage your Server

Or under programs

Cannot remember the exact path

Post back if you have problems finding it - I can find out.

I can't find it under Administrative Tools - any idea where I might find it elsewhere.

Thanks.

Apologies - but its been a while since I worked on SBS 2000

Can you try under

Start->Programs->Microsoft Small Business Server->Small Business Server Admin Console

From the Administrators Console, click Help. If you still can't find the number of CALs installed, take a look at http://www.sbs2000.info/tips_tricks.htm for an example of where to find this information.

However, the link does not work.

I did find these though

Hope that helps

You think MS would make it easy for you ...
