WS2K8 in an SBS 2K3 R2 Domain - CAL Information

In response to a recent query on the Brisbane SBS User Group mailing list, here's a link to the information about what's needed, CAL-wise, when adding a Windows Server 2008 machine to an SBS 2003 R2 domain. Question 12 is the particular question of relevance here.

Now, if you're running a Windows Server 2008 box that's on a different domain, you will need to have separate CALs for accessing that box - the SBS 2003 CALs only cover accessing another server *in the same domain*, not on the same network and not in another network (such as a DMZ).
