    2008 licensing

    Hi
    Iím going to get a new server soon and thought I would get server 2008 standard to run on it. It will be a domain controller. Our other servers are 2003 standard. Iím confused about the licensing.
    Do I need to get different Ďcalsí or can I just the buy 2008 install it and be up and running?
    Any help with licensing would be great
    Cheers

    Unfortunately you will need to buy the CALS. Although some volume licensing you already get the latest CALS when they release the new product.
