Licensing for Server 2000 to Server 2003

Posted on 2006-04-27

My organization has purchased enough Server 2000 CALs to be fully licensed through the Open License program. We are now looking into moving to Server 2003. Do we need to purchase a whole new set of CALs or is there any upgrade path or upgrade pricing we should be entitled to? (And no, SA was not purchased with the Server 2000 CALs).
