I have 20 cals (4 5packs) and HAD the OS, but it has gone missing.  I will order a new one in the AM, but need to get this server built in the next 2 days.

Is there a way I can get an evaluation version, with a 30 or 60 day trial...that I can activate when I get the new serial?  I am also assuming this has full functionality and the trial will allow me to add CALs?

Can this be done or am I asking to much without full version?

     You should be able to do everything that the full version offers, Microsoft offers a 90 Day Trial, and you can get it;

    Are you positive I can add the CALs and an exchange server and use it in a working environment?

    When they had the 08 version up and I setup my box it was able to do everything that I needed, so going off of that experience should be the same. According to the specifications they say full featured, so usually that's a good enought indication as well.
