We've always been told that we don't pay for the extra software we already have licenses for (ie. if we have 300 licenses for XP and our network grows to 310 XP machines) until the end of the year, but if it is something we don't have yet (like adding TS licenses to the agreement) then we needed to buy them.

This is for both licensing and technical requirements - namely, terminal services requires a licensing server to run properly. And the licensing server requires some licenses to allow clients to connect - if you use a volume licensing scheme, this would involve entering your agreement number in the licensing console and it contacts MS to get your licenses.

For instance, you might license 5 Windows servers at the start of your agreement in January (assuming your agreement starts in January) but part way through the year (say June) decide you want to implement a sixth one. You would be allowed to implement your new server in June and would then add it to your agreement next January when it is renewed.

This is how it was recently described to me anyway.

You are both correct, we have the lisence required. If not we can still run it for a trial of 60days.

So if i omit line 3 it should still work. Kwl - thanks guys, i'll give it a go. Now to find a floppy drive :P
