Does anyone know if Terminal Services CAL's migrate from Server 2000 to 2003? We are going to get a new Terminal Server and I need to find out if I need to repurchase the CAL's or not.

Thanks

Looks like you can use your 2000 CAL's on the 2003 server, you have to re-register them.

"You must call Microsoft Clearinghouse to install and move the existing Windows 2000 Licenses to a Windows Server 2003 license server. A license server that runs on Windows Server 2003 supports both Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Terminal Server licenses. However, if you upgrade or migrate your Windows 2000 license server, you need to reinstall the Windows 2000 Terminal Server CALs on the Windows Server 2003 license server. For reinstallation, you need to call the Microsoft Clearinghouse to get the license keypacks that go with the new server ID."
