I do have the necessary license for access to my Windows 2000 operating system. The Windows 2000 operating system has an active directory running in it. In addition, I have a Domino server on my Windows 2003 server. This windows 2003 server happens to be in the same domain with Windows 2000. The Domino server is meant for emails and related programs. Do I need an access license for the windows 2003 I addition to the one for Windows 2000?
Must I have license for both Win 2000 and Win 2003?
You will still need the license keys because if you don't have the Windows 2003 it will still force you to have your license after 120 days. It may be the most dreaded component but Microsoft have keep it updated for licensing of technology whether it is the operating system or the components itself. If you try to ignore the message about getting the license after some time some functions or windows components will stop working and you will be forced to get a license for that. Windows operating systems are especially design with "honor system" used for tracking licenses because some users will try to go around or get illegal licenses. It has worked well guarding and thieves and administrators as well.
