I always find my mind in a haze when trying to figure out "what do i need now" to stay compliant, so thought I'd just ask this time.  Here is what I have and going to and thinking I need, please correct.

-2 2003 dc being upgraded to 2 2008 non R2
-15 win 7 new and 15 xp existing ws logging into our one domain.
-1 DC functions as a  file server where users access to get access to files on s shared drive.
-1 existing 2003  server to be migrated two 2007 exchange(no not 2010 at this time). Users use local outlook 2007 via their office pro installs as well as have access to owa via ssl setup.
-1  2003 svr running CRM product on top of 2005 SQL that needs to be migrated to  SQL2008.  There is a lite client that users use to connect to the CRM product

SO Here is what I think I need(in addition to product licenses and sw):

30 cals for the 2008 server connections
30 SQL2008 Cals
Office 2007 pro licences for 30 stations - already have totaling 30
Win7 and xp sw and lic - already have totaling 30
30 exchange CALS

Please let me know what I missed/didn't consider.

Thanks

Looks good to me, your best bet with MS licensing is to draw a visio picture of how it all relates and get your Microsoft rep to sign off on it.

Then you are covered if they ever come back on you.  Most larger vendors have someone that is certified in Microsoft license compliance.
