Used Windows server licensing
Posted on 2009-07-13
we have small business network with 25 or so users, running off of 3 Windows 2000 servers. They are not ready to buy an all encompassing server solution to replace what they have, but disk space and other items are getting limited and 1 idea is to look for a used or refurbished windows server, probably 2003, and join it to the domain and set it up and then move certain programs and files to it as needed, but not replace any of the others yet. What kind of software or licenses would they need to add this server, just the one for the server or would they need more cals for the users to access it? Would it depend on what license package the previous owner had on it if they were to buy one from someone else?
