Where do I find how many CALs are available and how many are in use in Windows 2008 server?  I used to go to the License tool located in Administrative Tools, but that is not present on the server I am working on.

The Windows Server CALs are not installed. The CALs are licenses that you purchase for the server. There is no licensing enforcement in the product. Therefore, the CALs operate on a trust model as donnk mentions above
