Dear bleepingcomputer community!

I have been a fool during my windows 2003 server setup and took the wrong amount of CAL licenses :thumbsup: ( not TSCAL ) .
Now I need to change it to the right amount somehow, my server is already up and running and I can't afford to re´nstall it.

Could anyone help me change it back to the right amount?
All help is appriciated!

Thanks for your responce Animal , since this is a school project and (I'm using MSDNAA licenses ) I can afford some downtime, during certain hours.
If you do know an answer to solve this on my own without contacting Microsoft I'd really appriciate it!

Due to the complexities of licensing. We suggest that you contact Microsoft support to resolve your Windows 2003 server issue. This way you will be assured that you are able to resolve the issue correctly, since you cannot afford down time.

Thanks for your response Animal, see my edit.
If anyone can help me out, I can afford downtime but I can't afford to re´nstall.
