I met with a potential customer that currently has an SBS 2000 installation (25 CALS) on an HP server that is about six years old.
The purchased SBS 2000 with ‘software assurance’ and Microsoft provided them with an ‘upgrade’ version of SBS 2003.
The customer wants to upgrade the server and I am looking at a Dell PowerEdge 2900. They want to know if they can use the upgrade software on a new server because we will not be upgrading the existing server?
If they purchased software assurance, should their SBS 2000 CALS also be upgradable? We have not been able to find any SA documentation and the company that installed the server six years ago is no longer around.
