I followed the steps on MS KB884453, add SBS 2003 to an existing Windows 2000
Server DC, changing DC to 2003 (SBS 2003  became GC and capture FSMO roles )
and changing licensing site to 2003.

The only problem I'm having is about CAL licensing. The Windows 2000 Server
had 15 CAL and the new SBS 2003 was acquired with 20 CAL (per user).  Event
Viewer sends me to the Licensing on Control Panel which tells me to use the
Wizard to Add CAL license. I don't have this option at least at Start Menu
and its dependencies and I manage to see the licensing data only in 2000
Server. Must I install this wizard as an additional Windows component on SBS
? Should I turn 2000 Server back as the licensing site ? If so how can I
define the additional licenses for SBS as BackOffice ? Or how I do it ?

At this moment, now and then some user lost connection to shared folder.

Thanks.
