Licensing

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

mburke3434:

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?
