We've been evaluating WSS (Team Services) on a test Win2k3 server w/Sql2000.
We're pleased and want to roll out Team Services on a production server.

We have a licensed copy of Win2k3 server. We've been using an MSDN copy of

Please confirm that:

a) Team Services is an out-of-the-box function of Win2k3 server, (no
special licensing is required.

b) SQL server2000 requires a license. What is the minimum investment
required to legitimately run Sql Server, and don't I need just one client
(node) connection?

WSS is indeed part of Windows server  2003, and covered under it's licensing
(server + CAL for each user -OR- server + external connector if users are
external). Sql Server 2000 is seperately licensed  and you need to have either a
per-processor license  -OR- a CAL for each WSS user.
