  • Question about downgrade rights

    I currently have a Volume License agreement for Windows Server Standard 2008 Sngl OPEN No Level.

    To use this license for Windows Server 2003 r2. Do I have to downgrade the license?

    I did not get asked for a license key when I installed Windows Server 2003 r2.

    Do you only need to downgrade when you need a license key?

    If you check your licence info on eopen, you should be presented with all the downloads applicable to that licence including downgrades, So you should see Server 2008 and Server 2003 to download.

    I did this recently with server 2008 and exchange 2007, but downloaded and used server 2003 and exchange 2003.
    You need not do anything else.

    It's all good!
