Just installed SQL Server 2008 on a SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard. Now I need to install 20 sql user cals. But cannot figure out how to install them? Do I need to setup terminal services on the server also? Guess I cant install SQL 2008 cals on a server 2003 terminal server?

I believe you do this by going to the control panel.

While there, you will find LICENCES applet.
Oopen it, and you should know what to do from there

You just buy the CALs. Since MSSQL does not check for the CALs, there is no need for entering the licensing info anywhere.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you are using windows 2008(?) then all you will need to do is insert your SQL Server CD again and this time, no need to reinstal; just do an upgrade and you will be asked to add licenses.

If however, you are running windows server 2005, then it should say, Licensing in control panel.

See this also for upgrading to licensed version.

sammy,
That procedure is required only if you want to change the edition, not add licenses.
