Windows Small Business 2008 Question about license limits

Posted on 2009-04-21

My understanding (as per MS website and previous SBS) is that SBS 2008 is limited to 75 clients; I also understand that in 2008, one doesn't actually place CALS into licensing, that it is enabled by default.

Is there a hard limit in SBS that prevents no other connections once 75 is reached?

What would one need to do to migrate from SBS2008 to full blown 2008 if not?

In SBS 2008 you can't see the CALS to be honest with you I don't know how the limit would be enforced but I know the performance would take a huge hit. You have other services that use licensing like Exchange so there is a limit within Exchange.

Just a follow up this 75 limit is still enforced if you think you are going to exceed then go with EBS server.
