Hi,
I now know the above is not license compliant but I've inadvertently added a second SBS03 to an existing domain with an SBS03 domain - my question is, how long is the grace period before the SBS starts shutting itself down?  I need to move a lot of data off the new SBS server and onto a std 03 server and wonder if it'll operate without issue until next weekend.  Thanks

Assuming you are fully patched you have 3 weeks to complete a migration before it starts shutting down.

Agreed the update will extend from 7 to 21 days.  However keep in mind you can have DHCP and DNS conflicts while both are running.  One of the DHCP servers will shut down immediately.  Manualy stop/disable the un-needed DHCP service and make sure the other is running.  Also make sure DNS is pointing to the correct server whether static or dynamicly assigned.
