Small Business 2003 & Outlook 2003 Cals on Terminal Server 2008

Hello

Can we use the outlook 2003 cals that come with each SBS2003 cal on a Terminal Server 2008 to allow us to install outlook 2003 on the 2008 terminal server?

Hope this makes sense!!

Regards

The TechNet whitepaper on installing TS in an SBS 2003 network says you can install Outlook 2003 on the TS (Step 11 on the page) and that you need to comply with the licensing, but it doesn't say what the licensing terms are:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc747395.aspx 

Per the EULA on CD1 of SBS 2003 R2, "...You may run or otherwise use any number of instances of
additional software listed below in physical or virtual operating system environments on any number of
devices...." "...* Office Outlook 2003"
CD1\I386\EULA.TXT dated 5/26/2006

And the SBS 2003 Licensing FAQ states that member servers don't require CALs:
"A. Your Windows Small Business Server 2003 CALs cover you for any additional Windows-based servers in the domain. You do not need to buy additional CALs for them."
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/techinfo/overview/licensingfaq.mspx 

I attached a copy of the SBS 2003 R2 EULA below.
MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS
 
MICROSOFT WINDOWS SMALL BUSINESS 
SERVER 2003 R2 STANDARD EDITION,
 
MICROSOFT WINDOWS SMALL BUSINESS 
SERVER 2003 R2 PREMIUM EDITION
 
These license terms are an agreement between 
Microsoft Corporation (or based on where you live, 
one of its affiliates) and you. Please read them. They 
apply to the software named above, which includes 
the media on which you received it, if any. The terms 
also apply to any Microsoft
 
* updates,
 
* supplements,
 
* Internet-based services, and
 
* support services
 
for this software, unless other terms accompany 
those items. If so, those terms apply.
 
By using the software, you accept these terms. If you 
do not accept them, do not use the software. Instead, 
return it to the retailer for a refund or credit. If you 
cannot obtain a refund there, contact Microsoft or the 
Microsoft affiliate serving your country for information 
about Microsoft's refund policies. See 
www.microsoft.com/worldwide. In the United States 
and Canada, call (800) MICROSOFT or see 
www.microsoft.com/info/nareturns.htm.
 
As described below, using some features also 
operates as your consent to the transmission of 
certain standard computer information for Internet-
based services.
 
If you comply with these license terms, you have the 
rights below for each software license you acquire.
 
1. OVERVIEW.
 
a. Software. The software includes
 
* server software; and
 
* additional software that may only be used with the 
server software directly, or indirectly through other 
additional software.
 
b. License Models. The software is licensed based 
on
 
* the number of instances of server software that you 
run; and
 
* the number of devices and users that access 
instances of the server software.
 
c. Definitions.
 
* Instance. You create an "instance" of software by 
executing the software's setup or install procedure. 
You also create an instance of software by 
duplicating an existing instance. References to 
software in this agreement include "instances" of the 
software.
 
* Run an Instance. You "run an instance" of software 
by loading it into memory and executing one or more 
of its instructions. Once running, an instance is 
considered to be running (whether or not its 
instructions continue to execute) until it is removed 
from memory.
 
* Operating System Environment. An "operating 
system environment" is one instance of an operating 
system and instances of applications, if any, 
configured to run on that operating system instance. 
There are two types of operating system 
environments, physical and virtual. A physical 
operating system environment is configured to run 
directly on a physical hardware system. A virtual 
operating system environment is configured to run on 
a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system. A 
physical hardware system can have either or both of 
the following:
 
o one physical operating system environment
 
o one or more virtual operating system environments.
 
* Server. A server is a physical hardware system 
capable of running server software. A hardware 
partition or blade is considered to be a separate 
physical hardware system.
 
* Assigning a License. To assign a license means 
simply to designate that license to one device or user.
 
2. USE RIGHTS.
 
a. Assigning the License to the Server.
 
i. Before you run any instance of the server software 
under a software license, you must assign that 
license to one of your servers. That server is the 
licensed server for that particular license. You may 
assign other software licenses to the same server, 
but you may not assign the same license to more 
than one server.
 
ii. You may reassign a software license, but not 
within 90 days of the last assignment. You may 
reassign a software license sooner if you retire the 
licensed server due to permanent hardware failure. If 
you reassign a license, the server to which you 
reassign the license becomes the new licensed 
server for that license.
 
b. Running Instances of the Server Software. You 
have the rights below for each software license you 
assign (corresponding to the edition of the software 
you have licensed).
 
i. Standard and Premium Editions. You may run, at 
any one time, one instance of the server software in 
one physical or virtual operating system environment 
on the licensed server.
 
ii. Premium Edition. As an exception to the above, 
you may run, at any one time, any number of 
instances of SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition in 
that physical or virtual operating system environment.
 
c. Running Instances of the Additional Software. You 
may run or otherwise use any number of instances of 
additional software listed below in physical or virtual 
operating system environments on any number of 
devices. You may use additional software only with 
the server software directly, or indirectly through 
other additional software. As an exception, you may 
only use the SQL Management Tools, SQL Server 
2005 Books Online and SQL Software Development 
Kit internally with the SQL Server portion of the 
software.
 
* Server Administration Tools
 
* Remote Desktop Connection
 
* Office Outlook 2003
 
* SQL Business Intelligence Development Studio
 
* SQL Server 2005 Books Online
 
* SQL Connectivity Components
 
* SQL Legacy Components
 
* SQL Management Tools
 
* SQL Reporting Services Report Manager
 
* SQL Reporting Services Shared Tools
 
* SQL Server 2005 Shared Tools
 
* SQL Software Development Kit
 
* SQLXML Client Features
 
* SQL Server Mobile Server Tools
 
d. Creating and Storing Instances on Your Servers or 
Storage Media. You have the additional rights below 
for each software license you acquire.
 
i. You may create one instance of the server 
software solely to exercise your right to run one 
instance in a physical operating system environment 
as described above.
 
ii. You may create any number of instances of the 
server software solely to exercise your right to run 
instances in virtual operating system environments 
as described above.
 
iii. You may create any number of instances of the 
additional software solely to exercise your rights to 
run or use instances in physical and virtual operating 
system environments as described above.
 
iv. You may store instances created under (ii) and (iii) 
above on any of your servers or storage media.
 
v. You may create and store instances to exercise 
your rights described above under any of your 
software licenses. You may not use the instances for 
any other purpose (e.g., you may not distribute 
instances to third parties).
 
3. ADDITIONAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS 
AND/OR USE RIGHTS.
 
a. Client Access Licenses (CALs).
 
i. You must acquire and assign the appropriate CAL 
to each device or user that accesses your instances 
of the server software directly or indirectly. A 
hardware partition or blade is considered to be a 
separate device.
 
* You do not need CALs for any user or device that 
accesses your instances of the server software only 
through the Internet without being authenticated or 
otherwise individually identified by the server 
software or through any other means.
 
* You do not need CALs for any of your servers 
licensed to run your instances of Windows Server 
software.
 
* You do not need CALs for up to two devices or 
users to access your instances of the server software 
only to administer those instances.
 
* Your CALs permit access to your instances of 
earlier versions, but not later versions, of the server 
software. As an exception, you may use Windows 
Small Business Server 2003 CALs to satisfy your 
CAL requirements described in more detail in this 
section 3.a.
 
ii. Types of CALs. There are two types of CALs: one 
for devices and one for users. Each device CAL 
permits one device, used by any user, to access 
instances of the server software on your licensed 
servers. Each user CAL permits one user, using any 
device, to access instances of the server software on 
your licensed servers. You may use a combination of 
device and user CALs.
 
iii. Reassignment of CALs. You may
 
*  permanently reassign your device CAL from one 
device to another, or your user CAL from one user to 
another; or
 
* temporarily reassign your device CAL to a loaner 
device while the first device is out of service, or your 
user CAL to a temporary worker while the user is 
absent.
 
iv. You may use Windows Small Business Server 
2003 CALs instead of Windows Server 2003 CALs to 
access instances of Windows Server 2003 or 
Windows Server 2003 R2 when those instances are 
within the Windows Small Business Server 2003 
domain.
 
v. You may use Windows Small Business Server 
2003 CALs instead of SQL Server Workgroup Edition 
CALs to access instances of SQL Server 2005 
Workgroup Edition when those instances of SQL 
Server 2005 Workgroup Edition are within the 
Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 domain.
 
vi. You may use Windows Small Business Server 
2003 CALs instead of Exchange Server 2003 CALs 
to access instances of Exchange Server 2003 when 
those instances of Exchange Server 2003 are within 
the Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 
domain.
 
b. Multiplexing. Hardware or software you use to:
 
* pool connections,
 
* reroute information,
 
* reduce the number of devices or users that directly 
access or use the software, or
 
* reduce the number of devices or users the software 
directly manages,
 
(sometimes referred to as "multiplexing" or "pooling"), 
does not reduce the number of licenses of any type 
that you need.
 
c. No Separation of Server Software. You may not 
separate the server software for use in more than 
one operating system environment under a single 
license, unless expressly permitted. This applies 
even if the operating system environments are on the 
same physical hardware system.
 
d. Additional Functionality. Microsoft may provide 
additional functionality for the software. Other license 
terms and fees may apply.
 
e. Included Microsoft Programs. The software 
contains the following Microsoft programs:
 
* Windows Server 2003 SP1 for Small Business 
Server,
 
* Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition,
 
* ActiveSync 3.8.
 
If the software is Microsoft Windows Small Business 
Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition, the software also 
includes:
 
* Office FrontPage 2003,
 
* SQL Server 2005 Workgroup Edition, and
 
* Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 
Standard Edition.
 
These license terms apply to your use of those 
programs.
 
f. Distributable Code. The software contains code 
that you are permitted to distribute in programs you 
develop if you comply with the terms below.
 
i. Right to Use and Distribute. The code and text files 
listed below are "Distributable Code."
 
* Sample Code. You may modify, copy, and 
distribute the source and object code form of code 
marked as "sample."
 
*  Third Party Distribution. You may permit 
distributors of your programs to copy and distribute 
the Distributable Code as part of those programs.
 
ii. Distribution Requirements. For any Distributable 
Code you distribute, you must
 
*  add significant primary functionality to it in your 
programs;
 
*  require distributors and external end users to 
agree to terms that protect it at least as much as this 
agreement;
 
*  display your valid copyright notice on your 
programs; and
 
*  indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Microsoft 
from any claims, including attorneys' fees, related to 
the distribution or use of your programs.
 
iii. Distribution Restrictions. You may not
 
*  alter any copyright, trademark or patent notice in 
the Distributable Code;
 
*  use Microsoft's trademarks in your programs' 
names or in a way that suggests your programs 
come from or are endorsed by Microsoft;
 
*  distribute Distributable Code to run on a platform 
other than the Windows platform;
 
*  include Distributable Code in malicious, deceptive 
or unlawful programs; or
 
*  modify or distribute the source code of any 
Distributable Code so that any part of it becomes 
subject to an Excluded License. An Excluded 
License is one that requires, as a condition of use, 
modification or distribution, that
 
* the code be disclosed or distributed in source code 
form; or
 
* others have the right to modify it.
 
4. MANDATORY ACTIVATION. To prevent its 
unlicensed use, you will not be able to use the 
software if you do not activate it as described during 
installation or setup. You can activate the software 
by Internet or telephone; Internet and telephone 
service charges may apply. Some changes to your 
computer components or the software may require 
you to reactivate the software. The software will 
remind you to activate until you do.
 
5. INTERNET-BASED SERVICES. Microsoft 
provides Internet-based services with the software. It 
may change or cancel them at any time.
 
a. Consent for Internet-Based Services. The software 
features described below connect to Microsoft or 
service provider computer systems over the Internet. 
In some cases, you will not receive a separate notice 
when they connect. You may switch off these 
features or not use them. For more information about 
these features, see 
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=38670. By 
using these features, you consent to the 
transmission of this information. Microsoft does not 
use the information to identify or contact you.
 
Computer Information. The following features use 
Internet protocols, which send to the appropriate 
systems computer information, such as your Internet 
protocol address, the type of operating system, 
browser and name and version of the software you 
are using, and the language code of the device 
where you run the software. Microsoft uses this 
information to make the Internet-based services 
available to you.
 
* Windows Update Feature. You may connect new 
hardware to the device where you run the software. 
Your device may not have the drivers needed to 
communicate with that hardware. If so, the update 
feature of the software can obtain the correct driver 
from Microsoft and install and run it on your device. 
You can switch off this update feature.
 
* Web Content Features. Features in the software 
can retrieve related content from Microsoft and 
provide it to you. To provide the content, these 
features send to Microsoft the type of operating 
system, name and version of the software you are 
using, type of browser and language code of the 
device where you run the software. Examples of 
these features are clip art, templates, online training, 
online assistance and Appshelp. You may choose 
not to use these web content features.
 
* Digital Certificates. The software uses digital 
certificates. These digital certificates confirm the 
identity of Internet users sending X.509 standard 
encrypted information. The software retrieves 
certificates and updates certificate revocation lists. 
These security features operate only when you use 
the Internet.
 
* Auto Root Update. The Auto Root Update feature 
updates the list of trusted certificate authorities. You 
can switch off the Auto Root Update feature.
 
* Windows Media Digital Rights Management. 
Content owners use Windows Media digital rights 
management technology (WMDRM) to protect their 
intellectual property, including copyrights. The 
software and third party software use WMDRM to 
play and copy WMDRM-protected content. If the 
software fails to protect the content, content owners 
may ask Microsoft to revoke the software's ability to 
use WMDRM to play or copy protected content. 
Revocation does not affect other content. When you 
download licenses for protected content, you agree 
that Microsoft may include a revocation list with the 
licenses. Content owners may require you to 
upgrade WMDRM to access their content. Microsoft 
software that includes WMDRM will ask for your 
consent prior to the upgrade. If you decline an 
upgrade, you will not be able to access content that 
requires the upgrade. You may switch off WMDRM 
features that access the Internet. When these 
features are off, you can still play content for which 
you have a valid license.
 
* Windows Media Player. When you use Windows 
Media Player, it checks with Microsoft for
 
*  compatible online music services in your region;
 
*  new versions of the player; and
 
*  codecs if your device does not have the correct 
ones for playing content.
 
You can switch off this last feature. For more 
information, go to 
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=51331.
 
* Windows Rights Management Services. The 
software contains a feature that allows you to create 
content that cannot be printed, copied or sent to 
others without your permission. You must connect to 
Microsoft to use this feature for the first time. Once a 
year, you must re-connect to Microsoft to update it. 
For more information, go to 
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=52646. You 
may choose not to use this feature.
 
b. Misuse of Internet-based Services. You may not 
use these services in any way that could harm them 
or impair anyone else's use of them. You may not 
use the services to try to gain unauthorized access to 
any service, data, account or network by any means.
 
6. DATA STORAGE TECHNOLOGY. The server 
software includes data storage technology called 
Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine for Windows. 
Components of the server software use this 
technology to store data. You may not otherwise use 
or access this technology under this agreement.
 
7. MICROSOFT .NET FRAMEWORK BENCHMARK 
TESTING. The server software includes the .NET 
Framework component (".NET Component"). You 
may conduct internal benchmark testing of the .NET 
Component. You may disclose the results of any 
benchmark test of the .NET Component, provided 
that you comply with the following terms: (1) you 
must disclose all the information necessary for 
replication of the tests, including complete and 
accurate details of your benchmark testing 
methodology, the test scripts/cases, tuning 
parameters applied, hardware and software 
platforms tested, the name and version number of 
any third party testing tool used to conduct the 
testing, and complete source code for the benchmark 
suite/harness that is developed by or for you and 
used to test both the .NET Component and the 
competing implementation(s); (2) you must disclose 
the date (s) that you conducted the benchmark tests, 
along with specific version information for all 
Microsoft software products tested, including 
the .NET Component; (3) your benchmark testing 
was performed using all performance tuning and best 
practice guidance set forth in the product 
documentation and/or on Microsoft's support web 
sites, and uses the latest updates, patches and fixes 
available for the .NET Component and the relevant 
Microsoft operating system; (4) it shall be sufficient if 
you make the disclosures provided for above at a 
publicly available location such as a website, so long 
as every public disclosure of the results of your 
benchmark test expressly identifies the public site 
containing all required disclosures; and (5) nothing in 
this provision shall be deemed to waive any other 
right that you may have to conduct benchmark 
testing. The foregoing obligations shall not apply to 
your disclosure of the results of any customized 
benchmark test of the .NET Component, whereby 
such disclosure is made under confidentiality in 
conjunction with a bid request by a prospective 
customer, such customer's application(s) are 
specifically tested and the results are only disclosed 
to such specific customer. Notwithstanding any other 
agreement you may have with Microsoft, if you 
disclose such benchmark test results, Microsoft shall 
have the right to disclose the results of benchmark 
tests it conducts of your products that compete with 
the .NET Component, provided it complies with the 
same conditions above.
 
8. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, 
not sold. This agreement only gives you some rights 
to use the software. Microsoft reserves all other 
rights. Unless applicable law gives you more rights 
despite this limitation, you may use the software only 
as expressly permitted in this agreement. In doing so,

give you any right to implement Microsoft patents or 
other Microsoft intellectual property in software or 
devices that access that server or device.
 
9. SINGLE USE. The software may include more 
than one version of the media, such as 32-bit and 
64-bit. You may use only one version for each 
license you acquire unless the software's license 
terms permit more.
 
10. BACKUP COPY. You may make one backup 
copy of the software media. You may use it only to

14. UPGRADE. If this software is marked as an 
upgrade version, you may use it only if you have a 
license to use the software eligible for upgrade. If 
you upgrade, this software takes the place of the 
earlier version, and this agreement takes the place of 
the agreement for that earlier version. You may use 
the earlier version only as permitted in the 
Downgrade clause below. You may not use the 
earlier version and this software at the same time.
 
15. DOWNGRADE. Instead of using the software, 
you may use an earlier version. This agreement 
applies to your use of the earlier version. If the earlier 
version includes different components, any terms for 
those components in the agreement that comes with 
the earlier version apply to your use of them. 
Microsoft is not obligated to supply earlier versions to 
you. At any time, you may replace an earlier version 
with this version of the software.
 
16. PROOF OF LICENSE. If you acquired the 
software on a disc or other media, a genuine 
Microsoft Proof of License label with a genuine copy 
of the software identifies licensed software. To be 
valid, this label must appear on Microsoft packaging. 
If you receive the label separately, it is invalid. You 
should keep the packaging that has the label on it to 
prove that you are licensed to use the software. To 
identify genuine Microsoft software, see 
www.howtotell.com.
 
17. TRANSFER TO A THIRD PARTY. The first user 
of the software may transfer it, this agreement, and 
CALs, directly to a third party. Before the transfer, 
that party must agree that this agreement applies to 
the transfer and use of the software. The transfer 
must include the software and the Proof of License 
label. The first user may not retain any instances of 
the software unless that user also retains another 
license for the software.

LIMITED WARRANTY
 
A. LIMITED WARRANTY. If you follow the 
instructions, the software will perform substantially as 
described in the Microsoft materials that you receive 
in or with the software.
 
B. TERM OF WARRANTY; WARRANTY RECIPIENT; 
LENGTH OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES. The 
limited warranty covers the software for one year 
after acquired by the first user. If you receive 
supplements, updates, or replacement software 
during that year, they will be covered for the 
remainder of the warranty or 30 days, whichever is 
longer. If the first user transfers the software, the 
remainder of the warranty will apply to the recipient.
 
To the extent permitted by law, any implied 
warranties, guarantees or conditions last only during 
the term of the limited warranty. Some states do not 
allow limitations on how long an implied warranty 
lasts, so these limitations may not apply to you. They 
also might not apply to you because some countries 
may not allow limitations on how long an implied 
warranty, guarantee or condition lasts.
 
C. EXCLUSIONS FROM WARRANTY. This warranty 
does not cover problems caused by your acts (or 
failures to act), the acts of others, or events beyond
