Server 2008 licensing question
Posted on 2009-03-30
All of our servers (around 10) are currently Server 2003 R2. We currently have software assurance for around 80 CALs that we could trade up for Server 2008 TS Cals. We have contacted Microsoft but are being told that we have to upgrade all the servers to 2008 - this would impact significantly on cost - we only have 2 terminal servers - the rest of the servers are file servers, database servers, domain controllers, etc.
On top of this we would have to then upgrade Backup Exec to the latest version.
So anyone got a clue about licensing and what we should do with the 2 terminal servers that are running Server 2003 R2?
