    Ok, here is the story. Just started a new job at a small company based in London. Current IT infrastructure is:

    – 2 oldish dell servers, one running SBS 2003, the other Server 2003 Standard
    – around 25 workstations
    – some Mac’s connecting remotely via pop for mail

    Anyway, the previous IT manager bought some new servers, but didnt think too hard about the licensing requirements, as such we have 2 poweredge servers sitting in their boxes with OEM editions of Server 2003 Enterprise, which as you would guess, is complete overkill, not to mention it would also require us having to also purchase Exchange 2003.

    So my question is this, can we return/exchange these OEM licenses for what we actually want, which is SBS 2003 premium and Server 2003 standard?

    Hope someone out there can help
