Question What exactly is Windows Server 2003?

Hello there everyone!

What exactly is Windows Server 2003? I came across a copy of Windows Server 2003 with 25 CALs.

Does this mean that I can install the server on one machine and then OSes on up to 25 client machines?


Does this mean that I can install the server on one machine and then have the ability to connect to said server from 25 clients and on these 25 machines I would have to provide my own OSes though?

Hi Twisted,
Your second choice is correct, you can install Server 2003 on one machine and have 25 clients, but does not include OS for the clients. Actually, the Server software itself probably includes at least 5 clients in addition to your cals. Nice find!
