    2008 Datacenter, virtual servers and downgrade rights

    I have 4 per-socket licences for 2008 Datacenter, this allows me to run as many 2008 vms on my two host servers as I like.

    Can I also use the licence to run virtual instances of 2003 server up to and including datacenter edition via downgrade rights?

    Aye, they're 4150s - I thought it was the case but it's best to check.
