We have recently upgraded from our OEM version of SBS 2003 to a retail boxed copy of SBS 2003 R2 using the guide found at the below link:
The upgrade went as expected and we are now running the SP2 versions of exchange and sharepoint and have installed the R2 components.
Before beginning this process i expected to be able to add the 5 new cals that come with the boxed R2 O/S to the existing 5 CALS we have, giving us a total of 10 CALS. However i am now not sure if we assumed correctly, when we go to licensing and attempt to add a new license i input the Product Key that came with CD's in the R2 box and get a message that it is not valid.
Am i doing something wrong here when it comes to instaling these new CALS or is something else the problem, i.e i haven't got 5 new cals but merely upgraded my exisitng ones to R2 CALS and therefore need to buy more?
Thanks in advance for any help,
