When live moving from old to new and decommissioning the old server afterwards, can you use the same license key for both servers or do you need to use a new license for the new server?

Hi JanSchotsmans,

A licence dies with its hardware. Which means that you'll have to get a new licence.

Cheers

Take in mind I'm not talking about Windows 2003, but Exchange 2003.
We have open licenses for our exchange servers.

And I doubt what you say is correct. The license didn't come with the server, it was used on it.

Yeah sorry, I didn't read properly. Exchange CAL's can be transfered to the new server, BUT Windows Server Licence, DSP or OEM, lives and dies on one machine.

I know that you can use the same license numbers when you migrate from Exc 2000 to Exc 2003.
From 2003 to 2003 should work. BUT i never tried it.
