Extra Windows Server - more licenses?
Posted on 2007-12-07
Here's the current setip:
- 1 x Windows 2003 SBS Server - 40 Licenses installed
- 1 x Windows 2003 Standard (setup as Terminal Server) - 13 Terminal Server licenses
(from what it tells me on the admin license screens on the servers)
(we have 30 Client PCs and 10 Wyse Terms - the PC's don't use the TS)
ANyways - the SBS server is maxed out - does "everything" and can't cope. So I want to buy a new Server to act as the File Server - which will remove the majority of the issues.
So, my question is, do I need to purchase more CALs / anything apart from a server with Server 2003? - it will be the same user base etc that will access it.
I have considered going down the NAS Appliance route so I know that's an alternative - but so I can give various cost options to my boss etc etc.
Many thanks in advance!
