Windows 2003 Server Licensing



  • 1. Is this possible in any way?
    Hi all I'm sitting at head office where we have a file server (win 2003) and then we have 15 remote locations. The remote offices have a ADSL (broadband) internet line which they use for browsing and to get their e-mails from head office where a exchange server is aslo. My question is : Is there any way that i can do something so that the people in the remote offices save in a specific directory on their pc's and all that work is saved on the fileserver that is sitting in head office. Must i setup a VPN or how can this be done?

    Something is very strange on my 2003SP1 machine. The remote registry service is always being set to disabled after restart despite I manually set the service to start automatically prior to machine reset. The server is behind a firewall and has active anti-virus solutions (AVG) and came up clean. Any thoughts?

  • 5. Locking down a folder structure
    If they can add and delete, they can move. Your best bet is to train your those users to properly "double click" on a file. Maybe play around with the mouse click speed. Technology can not always substitute for proper training. hth DDS "O Chacon" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > In an NTFS Windows 2003 server shared folder structure I am unable to stop > some users from accidentally dragging one folder into another.

1.  Can you have concurrent logins for a user and if so how many or is it 

2.  Does and XP Pro license give you a license for Windows Server (I have 
been told this and was wanting to verify)?  If this is true, can you upgrade 
XP Home to XP Pro, thus giving you a server license?

3.  What is the best and cheapest way to purchase approximately 20-30 user 

Thank you!

1. A single CAL can have multiple logins to a server however they will
consume multiple connection's on the server.  This only means multiple
login's, mapping multiple shares is not the same thing.

2. XP is just a single system CAL, you'll still need a server cal to
have that machine connect to the server itself.

3. If you buy computers from a large provider (gateway, compaq, dell)
then call your account rep and get a bulk cal license.  If you bought
server and got 5 CAL's you can buy a pack of 5 CAL's from pretty much
anywhere.  The part number (if I have the right one) is R18-00139.  Or
you can do a search on froogle to find good pricing.

1.Windows 2003 Server Licensing - Application Server

A user intends to deploy a Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition-based 
computer *strictly* as an application server (for a non-Microsoft 
application). File sharing, print sharing, terminal services, DHCP, etc. 
will *not* be used. Up to 50 concurrent users will be accessing the 
non-Microsoft application at any given time.

How many Client Access Licenses (CAL) are required?

Thanks in advance,


2.Windows 2003 Server Licensing Mode

I have bought 3 new servers running Windows 2003 Server R2.

Server A : DC running AD and ISa 2004
Server B : ADC (Additional Domain Controller) running Exch 2003 Sp2
Server C: ADC FileServer

What licensing mode do i choose.  I switched the machines on, and I have 
select per seat or per user/device.  Please advise.

Furthermore, are there any white papers for setup of the above?  



3.Windows 2003 Server License Question

Abouth 6 months ago, we acquired two DELL poweredge servers. We had not 
bought the operating systems at the time due to budget limitations and had 
been running the trial version of Windows 2003 Server entrprise edition until 
the trial period expired two days ago.  We now need to actually buy Windows 
2003 since the hardware is claimed to be compatible only with that OS. 

I am a little confused about the licensing options for Windows 2003 Server 
operating system. I'd appreciate it if someone could guide us as to what 
licensing option would be the best for these two machines. 

These machines are basically used for numerical simulation/engineering 
applications and are accessed remotely using the remote desktop connection 
from Windows XP PCs. The number people accessing the machines simultaneously 
does not exceed two. Should we get two copies of the Windows 2003 Server Std 
Edition and and install it on two machines (each machine would get 5 user 
licenses, I guess)or can we get one copy and install it one two machines (is 
it allowed?) ?

I'd appreciate any help,
Thank you,

4.Windows 2003 Server License

We are upgrading our 2000 TS to 2003. Our License are on  a 2003 Domain 
Controller.  Microsoft said I did'nt need to purchase any License Because we 
had upgrage advantage at the time 2003 server came out.  What will I need to 
to my license when I upgrade my Terminal servers? 2003 server licenses

I don't understand how Licensing (Administration Tool) works, it shows
me all user connected to domain, doesn't matter if I check it from
domain server or for example file server all the time shows me 50
users... I have 3 servers Windows 2003 and CALs, but all user are
connected to domain server some to second server and some to third
server and I don't know how to manage it when it shows me all users
connected to domain server.
Does it mean that when I have for example 50 users in domain, just 20
users use other servers I still have to have 150 CAL's even actually my
users use 50+20+20 and when I will buy another server just for 10 users
I will have to buy another 50 CAL's
