We have an old server with an SBS2003 (premium) licence, currently not in use. We have a newer server that is running SBS2003 (standard) and is the production server, set up as normal with Exchange etc.
Now I now that it's possible to have the old machine coexist with the new SBS by wiping it, reinstalling the base OS from the SBS installation media, promoting it to a DC, and demoting it again (the last bit stops the SBCORE service from rebooting the machine every couple of hours (100 minutes I think).
My question is this: does this procedure conform to the licensing agreement? We have sufficient CALs, the licence is applied to the correct server, and we won't be disabling the SBCORE service.
In the event of a software audit, could this be flagged up as a problem?
