I need some advice regarding MS licensing, hopefully someone can clear this for me.
I am going to upgrade 5 years old HP ML350 to a ML150 G6, 450 GB mirrored 15rpm, 10GB memory.
We currently have:
1 x Exchange server 2003 OPL
1 x Windows 2003 Server OPL
35 x Windows 2003 CAL OPL
35 x Exchange OPL
also had purchased 10 exchange CAL which is not in OPL (we did not know it was open license)
I am going to upgrade the server to a newer one so I was wondering which path would you guys advices,
a - Upgrade everything to 2008 OPL, exchange 2010 OPL, costs more then £5000
b - buy OEM, we have 50 users, SBS 2008, and 9 cal packs, around £2300
c - Upgrade Windows 2003 std to enterprise (is this possible) so I can use 10GB memory
d - Use the existing software with the new server - Win2k3, Exchange 2003, server only with 4 GB.
Any advice be much appreciated!
