Installing Office 2010 Standard on a Windows Server 2003 R2 Terminal Server

Hi

I have to install office 2010 standard on a Windows Server 2003 R2 Terminal Server. The server currently is running Office 2000 and i have the following questions.

- After installing, what is the process for activating the 13 Open Volume Licenses we have (for Office 2010). I have had a look on the MS website but it is a little confusing. A step by Step in plain english would be handy ;-)

- When i uninstall Outlook 2000 and install outlook 2010 (and configure each users profile) will their calendar appointments still be there? they are exchange 2003 mailboxes.

- Also are their any other things i should be aware of when doing the upgrade?

any information would be appreciated

I can only comment that with outlook 2000/2010. Instead of uninstalling outlook 2000, just install Outlook 2010 and I think it will automatically upgrade your outlook 2000 to outlook 2010. I am not 100% sure since you are bridging several version, but I know it definately works that way from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2010.
When it upgrades it should maintain your calendar appointments and all related data.

you need the full "enterprise edition" of office 2010 - if you install that you will be fine.

I have the Ope Volume License of Office 2010 Standard and downloaded the software directly from the MS licensing site so i am guessing i should be ok (e.g. enterprise edition). The main concern is the tasks and calendar for each mailbox, i need to be 100% sure uninstalling office 2000 and installing office 2010 won't loose all the calendar or task information

If users use the calendar and tasks of the exchange mailbox they will not miss anything.

You can check the calendar or tasks of a user, through OWA, if they are there, then you're safe.

I uninstalled Office 2000 and installed Office 2010, Outlook did retain all the mail, calendar, contact and Task information. Also as it was an Open Volume License i did not have to activate for any user (it was already done (or it avtivated silently).
