Hello,

We have a 2003 SBS server at one location and restored it at a seperate location for testing purposes.  

Can I activate the test server without affecting the production server?  I do not know what MS does with the activation info and if they track it.

Thanks,
Bonnie

OK, so even though I have both up, some MS database won't see concurrent activation when we check for updates and deactivate one?

I didn;t think they had this setup but just wanted to check.
