I purchased 10 more Cals and I have no idea on how to add them. We have a 2003 Server (my first one). I recall adding the 25 digit code on a small buisness server with a simple user interface. Here I go to licensing and I can add seats but no place for dcodes or anything like that.

What are my steps. I just got them from CDW

Keep the CALs on file. There is no code to enter for simple server CALs. If they are Terminal Server User (or Device) License CALs, that's a whole different thing.

if you have licencing installed (add remove windows components) then you can add your CALS in, this is best practice

Licensing is installed and when I add the cals I get no prompts for any codes. Is that all I do?
