SBS 2000 SP4, UPgraded to full Exchange 2003 Standard - Need to add CALs!
Posted on 2007-08-09
I recently upgraded a SBS 2000 SP4 server (single server network) with a full version of Exchange 2003 SP2 Standard. The company has 25 users, all now on Exchange, but the Exchange 2003 Standard install only came with 10 user licensing.
The company picked up an additional 25 Exchange 2003 (2007) user CALs.
I know SBS 2003 well and realize that SBS 2000 and 2003 handle the addition of user CALs differently - SBS 2000 having an executable on a floppy to add them and SBS 2003 (like Exchange 2003, Term Server, etc...) issuing a certificate with an Authorization Number and License Agreement Number.
Well all I have is the paper (Authorization Number and License Agreement Number) for this Exchange 2003 over SBS 2000 CAL upgrade.
Is there any way to install/use these licenses? Or do they need to go back and purchase SBS 2000 CALs - and are those going to allow more users on Exchange 2003 SP2?
And no, I could not talk them into a SBS 2003 upgrade... just in case you were going to ask.
