Hello,
Rebuilding a Windows 2003 SBS Server with a failed hard drive. Have re-installed the 5 User R2 OS but It previously had 3 Packs of 5 User retail CALs activated. We still have the keys - how can these be transferred to the new installation ?

I made a guesstimation of this answer in your previous question after your assign:

You should be able to simply "add" the licenses to your server by inputting the codes into the licensing menu, as per MS' Q&A:

Q.      How do I add licenses for Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2?
      
A.      After you have obtained your CAL add-on packs, use the Server Management console to enter the product key that ships with the CAL pack. Click Start, Server Manager, Licensing, and then Add Licenses. Follow the wizard to enter your product keys.
