Hi, I have a new client that is running Microsoft Server 2003 R2.  The want to know how many CAL's they have left before buying another bundle.  Is there a way to look this up on the server.  They are using active directory and currently have 45 user accounts.

Thanks,
Tim

If this is Small Business Server 2003, then you can check the licensing section of Server Management tool.  If not, the only RELIABLE way to know is to review purchase records.

Go to Administrator Tools / LIcensing.  If they ever set up the licensing service, and added the licenses, they would be there.

Let me repeat - the only RELIABLE way to know (if this isn't SBS) is to review purchasing records.

Indeed, in fear of beating the issue to death, there should be records of licenses purchased.

If MS Open Licensing was used to purchase the licenses, you can check online how many licenses you own (you would have been provided with the details on how to do so when you purchased them).

But you'd still need the customer number, license number, and and Live ID to get to the info...

If there are no records for any of the above, then I'm afraid you can't find out.
