Sometimes you trust people just a bit too much. I had heard from another instructor that if you move a single WS2008 R2 server into your infrastructure you need to upgrade your cal’s since it’s a different SKU to MSFT. Well in short form, the information I received was incorrect.

     The worst part is I passed this bad info to you, the students. I apologize for any confusion or extra work this may have caused  you guys. I’d like to point to MSFT’s own site to give you the “from the horses mouth” answers…
