    SQL Server and SBS2003


    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this one, as Microsoft Licensing can be difficult as it is!

    Small Business Server 2003, Brought SQL Server Workgroup Edition purchased as an Integrated Module of SBS2003 As such licensing was bundled in the SBS purchase of up to 50 Users.

    The problem is the SBS2003 Server is now becoming under load as the SQL Databases are now being used more plus 2 more databases have been added to the instance, what I am wondering is if I installed this on a Standalone box can I still transfer those licences over or/ would I have to purchased the SQL Licences again as I have kind of broken it away from the SBS Server.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Many Thanks,

    Sorry I just need some information clarifying

    The SBS 2003 is that Std or premium as you said you brought SQL workgroup edition as an integrated module of SBS 2003.

    If you can confirm if you have SBS 2002 Premium or if you have SBS 2003 Std and Also purchased SQL Workgroup Edition separately.
