Finding out the exact tech specification and CALs on a server

Posted on 2009-02-16

We have a spare server and our IT supplier is trying to selling us another for a new venture we're going for. I suspect our spare server is powerful enough to cope with the added features but I need show them the exact specifications of it and what licenses are accociated with it. What's the best way of doing this?

    and if this is SBS, go to start > server management > licensing, there you can see your sbs licenses.
