    Which CALs exactly?
    Only TS and SBS CALs have to be entered at he server, others are "on the honor system".

    Only two MS products require to enter CALs to work: Terminal Server (Application mode) and Small Business Server.
    Everything else does not (believe or not) require to enter any information about CAL to keep the product working. Licesning service in W2K3 is disabled by default and should be only used to make tracking of CALs easier.
    If you want to enter CALs on Std server, start Licesning service in Administrative Tools, Services, go to Licensing service and enter information, but you are not required to do so.
