We have 20 CAL's for our SBS 2003 server. There is a windows 2000 server that is a member server of the SBS domain. It used to be a DC with its own domain. It was demoted to a member server of the SBS 2003 domain. It had 10 licenses of its own when it was a DC. Even though we have 20 licenses on SBS 2003 only 10 computers can access the windows 2000 server. It is my understanding that while a windows 2000 server is a member server on a SBS 2003 domain all of the licensing takes place on the SBS 2003 DC. If change from per server to per seat will we still have the 20 licenses on the SBS 2003 server? Do XP computers automatically come with a CAL for a SBS 2003 Server? I do not want to change to per seat and lock everyone out
