How do I deal with this License Issue?

    We have a sbs2000 which acts as a TS license server. I want to add a new
    windows 2003 member server as the new TS and not use the sbs2000. Can I add
    the 2003 server TS license server to the domain as a license server? DO I
    have to turn something off on the SBS2000 before I make the 2003 server a
    license server?

    thanks,

    sd

    Why not leave your TS licensing on the SBS2000 box, and use the new W2003
    member server to host TS?
     
  3. Did you mean that you want to shift your license server from Windows Server
    2000 to Windows Server 2003?
    If so, then yes you can do that and in this case you need to do that.
    Reason being you are planning to move your TS from Windows Server 2000 to
    Windows Server 2003.
    For accessing Windows Server 2003 TS, you need Windows Server 2003 TS CALs
    and that can only be installed on Windows Server 2003 license server and not
    on 2000.
    Here is the step by step guide for you to migrate your licenses server from
    one machine other.


    Hope that helps!

    Thanks
