| | BES 3.6 SmB CALs on BES 4.1 Express?
Please Login to Remove!
I am in the process of upgrading our MS SBS 2K server to SBS2K3, and on our SBS 2K server we have BES 3.6 for Small Business installed with 7 Users. I dont have the budget to purchase an additional Server license just for BES, and it appears that the 4.1 Express install can go onto the SBS2K3 box without issue.
Is it accurate to say that 4.1Ex will go onto the SBS2k3 box?
Will I be able to use the CALs from my existing 3.6 installation on the 4.1 Express installation? I purchased 2 of them recently, and they were technically 4.1 CALs, so I am assuming those will be fine, but what about the base 5 that came with 3.6 SmBus?
I am not trying to avoid proper channels, I just need to know how ot provision for this upgrade ahead of time, so that I am not stuck with users unable to get their email while I wait for new CALs to arrive...
