SBS 2003 Licensing Questions
Posted on 2011-09-16
We had a server running SBS 2003 Premium OEM, the mainboard died which means the license also dies? am i correct in saying this?
What i then did is i took the hard drive of the above server and placed it into a new server machine. As far as i know this is illegal as OEM has no transfer rights?
On the new server we allready have an SBS 2003 Standard OEM key stuck on the back, can i just go ahead and change the first OEM key(died key) to the new OEM key(key on new server) and have everything legal?
Please note when we originally loaded our first SBS 2003 Premium OEM we used SBS 2003 Standard Discs to do the install
I tried talking to Microsoft without much help
