I would be grateful if experts could help clarify for me the following situation.

I have a Win 2008 R2 FDN member server joined to a Win 2003 SBS domain.
The plan is to upgrade the Win 2008 Svr to the full Standard version.
Presently, there are some 50+ 2003 Cals. And access to the 2008 server is limited to only 15.

With the upgrade, will I need to have separate 2008 Cals or upgrade all existing 2003 Cals in order to have full access to the 2008 server?

Thanks

"SBS 2003 R2 does include Windows Server; however, it includes Windows Server 2003, not 2008. So, the CAL rights included in SBS 2003 R2 CALs are Windows Server 2003 CAL rights, not Windows Server 2008 CAL rights. As such, no, SBS 2003 R2 CALs do not include Windows Sever 2008 Server access rights, just Windows Server 2003 and prior versions access rights. This is the same way CALs have worked for years and years and years and is not something different for Windows Server 2008."
