I have a member server that is a Windows Server 2008 R2 and is a member of a SBS 2011 domain. I would like to upgrade the 2008 server to a 2012 server. Is there any problem with doing this. I cannot find any articles on this. I assume that it is ok but I wanted to confirm that it is. Anyone do this?

The Server 2012 has 10 cals with it (part of my MS Partner software). I am looking at purchasing the 2008 server cals. Are device cals and user cals interchangeable?
No. Especially in 2012. User CALs are more expensive.
And you wouldn't purchase 2008 CALs - you cannot use them to access 2012 servers. You NEED to get 2012 CALs.
I decided not to upgrade since I was not sure that all my apps will work. I was able to get my 2012 cals to be converted to 2008 cals by calling MS licensing.
