Finding out the number of cals available from the server

trinisteve asked
Microsoft Server 2008 standard is installed on a server but the licensed software cannot be found to determine how many cals are available. Where on the server can I find out how many cals are available?
Watch Question

There are no more licensing management from Windows 2008 server. You should count your licenses manually.
I don't believe that Server 2008 performs any form of licence tracking. You don't 'install' CAL's, so I wouldn't think there is a way of determining how many there are. This doesn't include Remote Desktop Servers, which do track CAL's.

You will need to be able to produce details of the number of purchased CAL's should Microsoft Auditing come knocking...
