How to determine current Exchange CALs.

We are trying to determine the number of existing Exchange 2000 (Enterprise) CALs available in our enterprise to order CALs for Exchange 2003, when we upgrade.  What and how can I determine the number of existing CALs and what's been purchased in our enterprise (since we do not have this record).  

From the Products View under MS EXchange 2000 Server product running Admin Tools/Licensing from one of the Exchange server, it shows the following  -
Per Seat Purchased - 0
Per Seat Allocated - 7286
Per Seat Purchased - 0
Per Server Reached - 4308

I'm not sure if this is accurate, how do I validate this and can you provide detailed steps on how I go about collecting this data?  

Thanks.

You aren't using SBS, so don't bother with the license logging service. It is a piece of junk that just throws up errors like this. I disable it at a group policy level.

In the event of an audit, the auditors will not care what that tool says as it doesn't hard enforce the limits and Microsoft do not provide any kind of file or key to unlock more CALs.

If you don't have records, then you have to think like an auditor.
No records, means that you don't have the licenses.

There are no upgrade options for Exchange, so you will have to purchase fresh again anyway.
