Hello

i have a server running sbs 2003 which currently has a license for 5 users.  We want to add 6 new users so wish to increase the license to 11 users total.  is it possible to get a new license for these additional users as our normal software contact is saying that it would only be possible to upgrade to server 2011.

This is only solution you can do and leave your system in old version. Otherwise you must buy upgrade to the latest
version.
