Hi, so far we had SBS, but we are expanding and need to upgrade to Server 2003. I have a few questions about licensing, hope somebody can help me.
1. We are going to have 2 sites, with 5 DCs. (2 Backup DCs) Do I need to buy the server license for all 5 servers?
2. If I buy 50 device CALs, can I install those on multiple DCs or I need to divide them?
3. Do I need to buy additional CAL for Terminal Services or can i use the Server 2003 CALs?
4. Do I need additional CAL for Sharepoint or can I use the server 2003 CALs for that?
5. Is SBS upgradable to Server 2003 or I need to redo the whole thing?
Thanks so much!
