Can you help me with my software licensing question?

When buying Windows Server 2008 R2 edition, I am offered 5 standard CALs (can be used either device or user based).

So for instance, if I was to buy two Windows 2000 R2 OS, I get a total of 10 CALs.

Can I install all 10 on a licensing manager on one of the two servers? Or do I have to install the 5 CALs on each one?

AH - 2008 R2 has ni license manager at all except for TS (Terminal Services) which require separate licenses.

Basically you TRACK licenses in your compliance / IT department. THe old way (paper, integrate into your workflows).

Great, thank you! After all those years with the crappy license manager they got rid of it and now back to paper just in case it's reported to BSA! – Cold T Nov 29 '11 at 16:11
