  • If you mean that you have a Windows Live OneCare retail subscription, which covers 3 PCs for 12 months, and you wish upgrade to Windows Live OneCare for server, the answer is that you can't. You will need to purchase the server subscription and a 25 seat subscription for the client PCs. There is no upgrade path.

  • You're welcome. I failed to mention that you can use the OneCare client subscription since it is already installed, but if you reinstall OneCare after the PCs are joined to a SBS 2008 domain, you'll need to use the subscription LiveID for the 25 seat license or use a workaround to remove the registry key that OneCare activation looks for to determine if a retail license is valid for the environment.
