We originally bought version 4 (with 25 user licenses I believe).
I got the free upgrade to v4.5 in 2000 and everything has been running
reasonably well since then.
I've been trying to make sense of upgrading to a newer version. I
would need licensing for 15 users.
My hardware is a dell poweredge 2400 with a single 733 and 256mb with
5 18gb ultra wide(2?) drives.
From atomicpark I can get:
sbs2000 upgrade with 5 cal 656
2x5 add on upgrade (145 each) 290
software assurance (2yrs) 99
Is that the way to go?
I'm assuming I will lose the original 25 user licenses when upgrading
to 2000 and will have to buy upgrade CAL's instead.
Will it run on the above spec machine (I'd like to upgrade to 2cpu's
and 1gb memory.
We don't use MSSQL or IIS (use mysql and apache on linux), we do use
exchange but I'm considering alt-n's mdaemon groupware. Sticking with
SBS seems to be the cheapest way to get to Server2003 either way.
