  • SBS CALs when upgrading (Was: M)

    Can Cals of SBS 2008 premium be installed on SBS 2011.

    Does SBS migration carry along the number of Cals

    AFAIK you need new CALs each time, but the only definitive answer you will get is direct from Microsoft

      CALs are no longer installed AFAIK, although still required. Given the startling lack of reliability of the built-in licensing system in 2K3 this is no bad thing.

      I'm pretty sure the CALs have to be upgraded along with the OS, but as Ossian said MS will give you the definitive word.
