Windows licensing question

Greetings,

I have bought 15 CAL and TS license and one server 2008 license for my domain. I had to open an eopen account on the microsoft site.

I've successfully added my license here and I'm now able to download my windows 2008 iso and see my serial number.

My question is the following...
On the licenses resume page, I saw that I have 15 Eligible quantity and 0 not resolved quantity and 0 Active SA quantity

Is this normal ? should I just ignore this or not ?

In the serial number page I also have MAK activation used / Available   0/12 is this normal ?

Do I have something else to do for my cal license and my TS license ? should I active them somewhere ?

Thank you

Normal... You activate on the installed server, not on your eopen account.

And why do I have a counter ?

"On the licenses resume page, I saw that I have 15 Eligible quantity and 0 not resolved quantity and 0 Active SA quantity"

"In the serial number page I also have MAK activation used / Available   0/12 is this normal"

I also have the following alert on the main page (contract list)

! - This contract ID expires in 90 days

What does this mean ?

This is perhaps not the exact term because my eopen is in french.

Thank you

Are you sure you are not using your KMS code by accident?

If so, there will be errors coming up in the event logs soon.

there is a difference between MAK and KMS keys

Check your event  logs for errors.

The 15 is how many you purcahsed, 0 means there is nothing outstanding with them, 0 SA means you do not have Software Assurance on the licenses.

Is this normal ? should I just ignore this or not ?
Yes, it is normal

In the serial number page I also have MAK activation used / Available   0/12 is this normal ?
Yes, that is multiple activation keys.  If you use up 12, it looks suspicious (why are you installing so many times).

Do I have something else to do for my cal license and my TS license ? should I active them somewhere ?

So if an inspector come here to see if we're legal or not the only thing I have to give him is the license paper that I have when I bought the CAL ?
