Export CALs

Hi,

Is there an export feature in Windows 2003 standard server like there is in SBS? I am about to reinstall a Windows 2003 Standard Edition server but I can seem to find a option to save the CALs from it. How do I do this?

Also another quick question, if you have a Windows 2003 5 CPU Server licence, can you use this to run 5 mono core servers?


Thanks!

You don't have to install CALs to Server 2003 Standard Edition. You simply have to have the certificate to say you have purchased them, but you do not have to actually input any information into the server. This is why there's no option to export any CALs - because you don't need to.

>>> "Windows 2003 5 CPU Server licence"
Only a licensing person at your licensing company of Microsoft could give you a completely valid answer to that, but as far as I am aware, that license would allow you to install it to one server which has 5 CPUs. That sounds a bit high though - might be worth calling your Licensing Company to check.
