So how do you get SBS 2011 premium these days?

You don’t.  It’s a new “premium add on” that is an additive purchase to SBS 2011.





So when you go to the VLSC, remember that there are parts you can download, and parts you go around

Also only buy premium add on IF you need SQL.  Otherwise just buy Win2k8 r2 plain as it’s a cheaper way to get the second OS.

    I thought that the SBS CAL did not entitle you to access a normal Win2K8 R2 server, only the SBS Premium server.

    If I’m right, then you’d have to be regular Windows Server CALs as well as the Win2K8 R2 licence, and Premium would go back to being cheaper.

  2. SBS cals gives you the right to member servers in the network. So even a Win2k8r2 will be covered by the SBS cals. You don’t need Windows Server cals, just SBS cals.
