My present configuration
Network with 3 DCs, 1 Windows 2008 R2, and 2 Windows 2003 SP2

I have 3 TSE Windows 2003 SP2 member servers (5 TSE users, 10 TSE users, 15 TSE users)
One of thse TSE servers is the TSE licencing server (per user)

I plan to add a new TSE Windows 2008 R2 member server wuth 10 new TSE CAL 2008 user

Question 1
Is it better to add my 10 new CAL 2008 licences to the 2003 existing licencing server , or to define the new 2008 TSE as another TSE licencing server for the new CAL? Which solution is better?

QUestion 2
I will buy also 9 Office 2010 Standard Open and 1 Office 2010 Professionnal Open (for a single user needing Access). How do I install this on the TSE? I cannot install 2 different Offices on the same server ?

thank you

For Question 1, I would recommend installing a new Licensing server for your 2008.  This is purely a personal preference, though.  Technically, you can license your 2008 servers on your 2003 box or your 2003 servers on a 2008 box.  I just prefer to keep them separate.

For Question 2, you should be able to install both product keys as additional keys (for example: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/983443).  Your trick would then be to make sure the Pro key is only published to your one user so it doesn't get sucked up by someone else.
