I have 30 OEM Licenses for devices that I have bought, how do I use them?

How do I use my device CALs for Windows SBS 2008 Premium?

Device/User CAL's for SBS 2008 are on an honor basis, there is nowhere within the OS to add them as there have been with previous server versions. I assume these are not Terminal Server CAL's, where you mentioned SBS.

This is not for Terminal as I understand it is not available for Small Business Server 2008. They are for ordinary devices and users.

You've installed them right?
Administrative Tools --> Licensing --> Add Licenses

Here is Microsoft's page on SBS Licensing
http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsServer2003/sbs/evaluation/faq/licensing.mspx

I belive that after you install the CAL's SBS will automatically assign them when devices access the server or when they are added to the domain.

Cheers,
Perry
