Good morning. I am the co-author and publisher for the Advanced SBS 2003 book and I like to hold virtual book reading. This is a good one because we are starting Chapter 3 on Licensing and it’s one of the chapters that I wrote!
So here ya’ go.
SBS 2003 Licensing
BY Harry Brelsford (Bainbridge Island, WA)
WITH Steven Banks (Port Orchard, WA)
In speaking with SBSers around the world, this licensing chapter has been eagerly anticipated. Why? Because even on a good day, licensing topics surrounding SBS 2003 are bewildering and maddening! This chapter is divided into three sections to bring order to the licensing discussion:
· Case Study – Alaskan fishing company. This is a sample company I use to draw out many licensing issues.
· Microsoft Licensing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) review. Believe it or not, many of the answers to your licensing questions already exist online. I will also discuss Terminal Services licensing (which is very important to Canadian readers according to my research) and member server licensing. You will also learn about per server licensing at the server application-level.
· More Microsoft-centric licensing topics. You’ll learn about the Ligman lease, the non-existent downgrade scenario, and other facts that are stranger than fiction in this section.
