    give a try to SBS 2008 Its wonderful software that helps Connect with customers, vendors, and suppliers easily and professionally, with access to contacts, appointments, and files from any Internet-connected computer or a Windows Mobile–powered smartphone, so you can be responsive even when you are away from the office.

    some 5 years too late....anyway registered only to say thank you
    & some update about client licences.

    installed server without sbs month ago, add some users for shared folders security and get messages
    "License usage for product Windows Server is at the maximum number of per server licenses purchased"
    ***many many bad words to microsoft***

    simple solution
    start that ***F bad words library*** sbs 2003 installation without cd in cdrom
    next next .... next till instalation starts
    when installation asks insert disk just click canel
    that process is in three parts, first trys to install server configuration that need to be canceled
    second installs licensing programm, that installs sucessfuly without cdrom
    and third again need to be canceled.
    after that just click finish.
    thats all

    C:\Program Files\Windows for Small Business Server\Licensing\activation.exe
    writing codes, activating, using...

    P.S. don`t know it matter or not, but first step to ignore that mesaage is to stop service llssrv.exe and all previously writed is done while that process is stopped.
    now i start up that service again and waiting tomorrow with big hope that it will work.

    How many licenses did you purchase? SBS comes with 5 out of the box, purchase additional 5x packs.
    SBS2000 had issues with client licensing, but 2003 got it squared away.

    Ahh...perfect setup for Foundations Server...no SBS components, yet some cool features and excellent pricing for a single server for a small biz. And most importantly for a business (since it's a server running important applications and storage)...it remains fully supported by Microsoft...so it's something the consultant can feel good about supporting. I only support a supported product in a business. For the "potential" clients that have a 1/2 arse jury rigged illegally licensed non-supported setup...and I'm asked to help them...I triage the setup...and propose a proper setup that is correctly licensed, and setup in a supported manner. If they do not want to spend the money to put that into place...I tell them I cannot help them and walk away. If I ignore that..and support them in a bad setup..and something goes wrong, and they look at me to get their data back up and running..and I can't..because it really was not a setup designed to do so....they will want to hold me accountable (and my business). I will not allow myself to be in that situation.
