Activation: Uninstalling MS SBS 2003 to reinstall later on same server

How do I deactivate my CALs and uninstall MS SBS 2003 to reinstall later on the same (slight possibility of a different) server? I am afraid product activation will say I can't reinstall the thing.

You can backup your CALs to reinstall later.  But if your software is OEM then you can't reinstall on a different machine.  If you were to get an activation request then you do need to call and get authorization.  You will always get authorization for a reinstall on the same machine or if not OEM on a different machine.

Just like XP Pro, with the CAL step. Mine's not OEM, so... cool.

Thanks Jeff
