Migrate widnows server 2003 1U CaL

ipcipher used Ask the Experts™
I have two servers both are windows 2003 service pack 2. Server 1 has both the windows terminal server licenses and the windows server 2003 1u cal. I have called the Microsoft clearing house and moved the terminal server licenses to server 1 but I am not sure how I can move the windows server 2003 cals over to server 2. I will eventually demote using dcpromo and take it offline will this move the cals?

Nope, you will need to call Microsoft, tell them you are moving the CAL's and give them the licensen key, then they will give you a reactivation key for that server..

I've had this issue many times when home users started conneting to our TS and we were using Device CAL's... After a while we needed to "refresh" all licenses and off course you'd get the how can i explain this to Microsoft issue over and over again :) Eventually they do help you :) :)
