Terminal Server licencing

Dear All,

I have a Windows 2003 server installed and configured with terminal server role. This server providing also the administration as terminal server client licensing. I  bought lincence for Terminal server 2003 and terminal server 2008 and they are both device CAL-s.
I have never used / installed (i beleive) TS 2008 cals before.
My question is:  Is that possible to use TS 2008 device CALs on a Microsoft Server 2003 machine?

Thanks

Yes, but you have to call Microsoft to get the appropriate CAL keys for 2003.  (Honestly, not sure they will still do it since 2003 is about to end life.  (Probably will, but you REALLY need to upgrade!)

Yes - you call MS - you cannot install keys for 2008 on a 2003 server.  You Microsoft to provide you alternate keys.
