SQL Server licensing
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible for a 50 seat (i.e. maximum of 50 connection) SQL Server 2000 or 2005 license to be change to a 10 seat? If it is possible is there any limitation on the number of seat that can be change? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SQL Server 2005 and up don’t really license this way any more. The server doesn’t really care how many CALs you purchase as long as you are legal.

    Thanks. How about SQL Server 2000, do you get any reimbursement from Microsoft for decreasing the number of maximum seats or can you use the number of seat you are not using on the SQL Server 2000 and use the same license with the remaining unused seat to license another server. Thanks for your help.
