Once the transition pack has been run on an SBS server and all has completed successfully can I add windows, exchange & SQL licenses in the same way as I do on a regular Windows server?

I've heard talk about Transition licenses but does this mean they have to be added in the same way that you normally do with SBS?

Thanks

if you have 25 users on sbs, and buy 25 transition licences then it turns sbs into each product, so you have a copy of windows 2003 std, exchange, sql, isa, etc.

Then you treat each product as though it is the full unlimited version.
